HARTSVILLE, S.C. -- Catawba pulled away in the second half to post a 21-13 win over host Coker in South Atlantic Conference women’s lacrosse action on Wednesday afternoon at the Coker Athletic Field. The Catawba Indians stay unbeaten in league play, moving to 8-5 overall and 4-0 in the SAC. The Cobras fall to 1-7, 0-2.

Leading 8-7 at the break. Catawba got goals from Nicole Hunt and Brooklyn Tilley to go up 10-7 and grab its largest lead to that point. Katie Barth scored two of her four goals in just over a minute to push the margin to 14-10 with 14:41 remaining. The Lady Indians put the game away during a six-minute span when they scored four unanswered goals for an 18-11 lead with 6:44 left. 

Catawba scored the opening two goals of the game, but Coker rallied behind Faith Kent and Haley McCusker to go up 6-4 of the 7:41 mark of the first half. Kent scored the first three goals with McCusker running off three straight after Tilley had put Catawba up 4-3. Catawba retook the lead on goals from Kennadi Holt, Barth and Becky Frost and would not trail again.

The Lady Indians held a big edge in shots with a 57-37 advantage, but Cassie Williams made 18 saves for the Cobras. Catawba won the battle of free-position shots, scoring on eight of 13 attempts, while Coker went 4-of-13.
