Steedman's Two Second-Half Tallies Push Women's Soccer Past FMU
SALISIBURY, N.C. -- Junior Sarah Steedman found the back of the net twice in Catawba’s 3-1 victory over Francis Marion Sunday afternoon at the Frock Soccer Complex Classic. The Catawba Indians improved to 4-0, while the Patriots dropped to 2-2 on the campaign.
Steedman struck twice in an 11 minute-span in the second half to snap a 1-1 tie. Her first goal came off a corner of the foot of Anna Sidders in the 56th-minute. Steedman closed the scoring when she took a feed from the near post off the foot of sophomore Jovana Sanchez, burying the shot from 12-yards out with 23-minutes remaining in the game.
Catawba opened the scoring when freshman Katie Webb sent a corner kick into the box at 1:43 into the contest while Amber Hand, a red-shirt freshman, pushed it past the keeper for her first-career tally.
The teams headed to intermission knotted at 1-1 after Francis Marion’s Kylie McElroy got her head to a cross by Kiley Barr at the 40:58 mark, beating Catawba’s senior keeper Shelby Thompson. She had not surrendered a goal since the 49th-minute of the season opener.
Francis Marion pushed forward, registering four of the team's nine shots after the Indians’ third goal but Thompson shut the door.
Newberry visits the Frock Soccer Complex Classic Wednesday at 5 p.m. for the conference opener for both teams.
