17_WLAX_HuntNicoleTC

BELMONT, N.C. -- Catawba outplayed host Belmont Abbey over the final 40 minutes, but an early 7-0 deficit was too much to overcome in a 15-12 loss to the Crusaders in women’s lacrosse action on Wednesday night at Alumni Field. The Crusaders improve to 3-1, while the Catawba Indians drop to 2-4.

Belmont Abbey scored the first 7-0 goals and took an 11-2 edge with 9:39 to go in the opening half on Kylie Eastman’s third goal of the game for the Crusaders. Catawba got back in the game by the half with a five-goal run over the final eight minutes. Brooklyn Tilley had the last two to cut the margin to 11-7 at the half.

Marin Felsoci gave the Crusaders a 14-8 lead with 8:29 to go, but Catawba rallied again. Katie Barth and Nicole Hunt cut the Belmont Abbey lead to 14-10 and Erin Green had the Lady Indians within 14-11 with 5:52 remaining.

Felsoci stopped the Catawba run on her goal with 4:44 left, but Green answered 30 seconds later to make it 15-12. Catawba had several chances to get closer, but could not manage a score. The best chance was by Gianna Pezzulo, who hit the post with just over two minutes left.

Pezzulo and Hunt each had two goals and two assists for Catawba. Barth, Green and Tilley all scored a pair of goals. Madison Anselmo stopped six shots in her 43 minutes in goal.

Felsoci tallied six goals with three assists for the Crusaders. Rebecca Luca added four goals with two helpers and Eastman finished with three goals. Annie Brannon collected 15 saves for Belmont Abbey.

Catawba is at home on Monday against Felician at 3 pm.
