Fink scores two as Women's Soccer shuts out L-R 2-0

SALISBURY, NC – Senior Jamie Fink (Woodbridge, VA) scored two second half goals and goalkeeper Cathrine Balentine (Charlotte, NC) was stellar in goal as the Catawba College women’s soccer team defeated the visiting Lenior-Rhyne Bears 2-0 in South Atlantic Conference action on Tuesday night at Frock Field. The Lady Indians improve to 9-1 overall and 2-1 in the SAC, while the Bears fall to 6-4 and 2-2. Solid defense led the way in the first half for both squads. The physical contest stayed scoreless until the 60:41 mark of the second half when Fink scored her first of the night, fourth on the year, on a breakaway pass by Jen Lowe (Enfield, CT). Lowe’s pass from midfield deflected off a Bear defender to Fink, who slid a shot under L-R keeper Julie Crosby (Cincinnati, OH). Catawba went for the back breaker in the 77th minute, but Kim Crowley’s (Glendale, AZ) shot was cleared off the line by defender Nicole Russell (Richfield, NC) to keep the score 1-0. Catawba would score its insurance goal seven minutes later as McKenzie Burman (Rolesville, NC) assisted on Fink’s second of the night. Balentine stopped all four L-R shots preserving the shutout. Crosby made nine saves for L-R.
