Women's Soccer Tops Newberry to Open League Action
SALISBURY, N.C. -- Catawba opened South Atlantic Conference play with a 4-1 victory over Newberry Wednesday at the Frock Soccer Complex.
The Lady Indians (5-0, 1-0) scored all four goals in a 16-minute window, spanning the end of the first half and the beginning of the second. Catawba was in control of the match when the Wolves (3-2, 0-1) tallied their lone goal.
The teams felt each other out for the first half hour, playing mostly in the middle third of the pitch. Jovana Sanchez broke a scoreless tie in the 37th-minute for her team leading fourth goal of the campaign. Kacey McLamb controlled Mackenzie Rennie’s corner before tapping to an open Sanchez.
Sanchez assisted on Katie Beck’s first goal of the season at the 53:26 mark, increasing the Catawba lead to 2-0.
Bailey Howell (55:40) and Maddie Peck (58:59) added their first goals of the season with unassisted markers, putting the Lady Indians up 4-0.
Newberry got on the board when Jacqueline Alrete’s shot was just high enough to glance off the finger tips of the Lady Indians keeper, Shelby Thompson.
Saturday’s game at Mars Hill has been postponed due to Hurricane Florence. The game will be rescheduled at a later date.
Catawba travels to Charlotte for a match at Queens Wednesday at 5 p.m.
