17_MLAX_ScottChaseSHTR

SALISBURY, N.C. -- Catawba came up just short in what would have been one of the program’s biggest upsets, falling 12-11 to seventh-ranked Limestone in men’s lacrosse action on Friday night at Shuford Stadium. The Saints scored the winning goal with 2:48 left and improved to 9-4. The Catawba Indians fall to 5-6.

Catawba had led 8-7 at the half, but saw the Saints scored four of the first five goals in the second half to lead 11-9 with 13:39 remaining in the game. Catawba rallied to tie on goals by Liam Lynch (7:31) and Joe Barber (5:19). Matt Hommel was able to get the winning goal and the final chance for Catawba was wide in the final 20 seconds and Limestone ran out the clock.

The Indians jumped out quickly to a 3-0 lead on goals by Barber, Chase Scott and Lynch. The Saints tied it before Catawba reeled off four more goals to go up 7-3 early in the second quarter. Cole Fanzo had two of those goals. Limestone closed to a goal by the half, scoring the final three of the period then the first two of the third to go on top for the first time at 9-8.

Barber scored three goals for Catawba, while Dalton Cook had two goals and three assists. Fanzo and Lynch also had two goals. Hunter Cheuvront made 18 saves in goal.

Limestone had balanced scoring with nine difference players scoring. Hommel, Charlie Sheehan and Brendan Smith each had two goals. Cole Aikens made 10 saves.

Catawba is in action at home on Wednesday, hosting third-ranked Lenoir-Rhyne at 7 pm.
