Women's Soccer Defeats #8 Lenoir-Rhyne 4-3

Salisbury, N.C. -- Catawba women's soccer (8-2-1, 4-1-1 SAC) defeated nationally ranked #8 Lenoir-Rhyne (10-2, 5-2 SAC) 4-3 Wednesday night at Frock Soccer Complex. The win moves the Indians to a game and a half behind conference leading Wingate.

It was a wild one from the get-go as the underdog Indians scored the first two goals of the match in the first half. The first goal came 30 minutes in, when Courtney Reavis scored of an assist from Sarah Bissett. The second goal came off a great corner kick by Jovanna Sanchez which was then headed in by Peyton Pruitt to make it 2-0.

The Bears would fight back though, as they got on the board quick in the second half when Hannah Van Erden scored off a header to bring the lead to 2-1. Just when LR had the momentum, Catawba would score again off the foot of Sarah Bissett to extend the lead to 3-1.

The back-and-forth continued when the Bears would strike back less than a minute later to bring the score to 3-2. The 79th minute saw senior Shelby Vasich score off a beautiful assist by Sanchez to make the score 4-2.

Just when it seemed the Indians had everything going their way, LR struck again in the 84th minute on a goal by Scarlett Kelly. The Catawba defense along with goalkeeper Shelby Thompson would keep the Bears out of the goal for the rest of the match and secure the 4-3 victory.

After the game, Thompson spoke about the win and what it means to the program: "Shoutout to everyone that came out and supported tonight, the energy translated right to the field and the sideline. I think the energy level was high all game... this game, we knew it was going to be huge game coming in to it. We struggled playing them last year, and coming off the win against LMU our spirits were high...I've been here five years and I don't think I can say that I've ever walked off the field and felt like this; I know everybody on my team gave 110 percent."

Next up for the Indians is a home match against Tusculum this Saturday. Game time is set for 5:30 pm.
