SALISBURY, NC – The Tusculum Pioneers scored three times in each half to defeat 13th-ranked Catawba 6-2 in South Atlantic Conference women's soccer action on Saturday night at Frock Field. Catawba drops its first match of the year, falling to 6-1 overall and 1-0 in the SAC, while Tusculum improves to 5-2, 1-0. Tusculum jumped on the board first in the 15th minute when Elaine Green (Durand, MI) tallied her first of three goals on the night to give the Pioneers an early 1-0 lead. Green struck again three minutes later with a header into the back of the net from an Ashley Moreira (London, ONT, CANADA) corner kick. Tusculum picked up its third goal in a six minute span in the 21st minute as Elaine Knudsen (Amelia, OH) helped out on a Rachel Barron (Cincinnati, OH) goal, her seventh goal of the year and the Pioneers would keep that 3-0 lead as the first half expired. The Lady Indians jumped on the board quickly in the second half as sophomore Lindsey Albers (Portland, OR) fired a shot into the back of the net and picked up her first goal of the year in the 52nd minute. Catawba gained momentum when freshman Leigh Telzrow (Dallas, TX) connected with a Jen Lowe (Enfield, CT) corner kick in the 71st minute only to have Tusculum regain momentum just 46 seconds later as Barron scored her second of the night. Green then scored her third of the night in the 85th minute with an assist going to fellow senior Tara Henderson (Norwood, OH). Tusculum’s final goal of the night came when Becky Carreiro (Mississauga, ONT, CANADA) picked up her fifth of the year in the 86th minute.
