1000th Goal For Women's Soccer Program Still Not Enough in 3-2 Loss to Pfeiffer


MISENHEIMER, NC -- The Catawba College women’s soccer team fell to Pfeiffer University 3-2 on Wednesday afternoon.  Aaliyah Jackson scored two goals for the Falcons in the win.  The Catawba Lady Indians fall to 9-7-1 on the season while Pfeiffer improves to 11-6. 

The Lady Falcons struck first in the 36th minute when Jackson out sprinted Catawba keeper, Bethany Davis, to a longball for an easy chip into the then empty net. 

Juliana Conte would respond just four minutes later for the Indians on a cross by Sophie Waller.  The goal marked the 1000th goal in the history of the Catawba women’s soccer program.

In the second half, Pfeiffer was able to break the tie with two goals.  The first came in the 58th minute by Jackson and Macy Rutledge followed it up in the 82nd minute.

Catawba would close the gap late in the game on an Anna Toole penalty kick to bring the score to the final 3-2 differential.

Davis took the loss for the Indians but still recorded three saves on the day.  Kate Halligan and Natalie Marsh split goalie duties for Pfeiffer with each surrendering one goal and tallying one shot.  Both teams recorded eight shots on the night despite the Falcons in control of the corners 4-1. 

Catawba returns home to Frock Field on Saturday to take on conference opponent Mars Hill at 5:00 pm.
