Catawba Dominates Bears 6-1

SALISBURY, N.C. - Balanced attack propels Catawba to a 6-1 victory over Shaw Saturday at Frock Field.

The five goal difference is the largest margin of victory for the Indians (8-2-0) since a 5-0 win over USC Aiken Sept. 27, 2017.

Catawba peppered the Bears (6-1-0) goal keeper, Shianne Duplantis, with 36 shots, including 20 in the second half.

Katie Webb opened the scoring when the Indians forced a turnover in Shaw's territory. She scooped up the loose ball and unleashed a rising shot into the top corner at 16 minutes, 27 seconds into the match.

Shelby Vasich, who led the team with six shots, redirected Mackenzie Rennie's corner past Duplantis, doubling the Indians' lead to 2-0 at 37:04.

Jasa Curry netted her 11th goal of the campaign for the Bears in the 39th minute, cutting the deficit to 2-1, before Ashley Bornkamp's shot in the 42nd minute bounded directly to Kasey McLamb, who smashed it home for Catawba.

Leading 3-1 at intermission, the Indians continued to push the pace and found the back of the net three more times on 20 shots in the final half.

Webb assisted on Bornkamp's goal at 49:57, before Jovanna Sanchez notched her team high five goal of the season in the 59th minute. Her turnaround shot from 20-yards out was unassisted.

Sydney Nadeau closed out the scoring at the 72:21 mark, when she headed home a cross from Hannah Ryan.

Inside the numbers:
- Catawba's 36 shots is the most since Sept. 26, 2012, when the team tallied 47 shots against Chowan.
- The six goals is the most since the game against Chowan, when the team scored seven.
