FSU scares No. 10 Catholic in 15-7 loss

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Behind a late scoring surge, 10th-ranked Catholic pulled away from Frostburg State for a 15-7 win in the season opener for both schools Tuesday in the nation’s capital.

The Bobcats (0-1) held a 6-4 lead with 24:01 to play in the second half, but the Cardinals (1-0) seized control behind a 10-0 run that handed them a 14-6 lead with 8:00 minutes to play.

The two teams traded goals inside the final two minutes for the 15-7 final.

Juniors Malory Brunett and Megan White accounted for five of FSU’s scores and played a key role in keeping the game close until the Cardinals second-half run. Brunett led the Bobcats with three goals.

Catholic opened with a 3-0 lead before White and Brunett quickly answered, scoring back-to-back goals within a 14-second span to pull FSU to within one. Senior Rachel Dwyer tied it at 8:51.

Katie Miller’s goal gave Catholic a 4-3 lead 18 seconds before halftime.

Brunett and White struck again early in the second half to put the Bobcatsup 5-4 at 25:45. Senior Taylor Cassatt made it 6-4 with a goal at 24:01 and Frostburg appeared poised for the upset.

However, Catholic countered with the game’s next 10 goals to put the game out of reach at 14-6.

Brunett scored her third goal with 1:27 left and Catholic's Samantha Hawkins made it 15-7 with six seconds to play.

The Cardinals held a 42-17 lead in shots, including a 25-10 edge in the second half.

Bobcat junior Karoline Miller made nine saves. Brunett and freshman Marissa Howk each scooped up four ground balls.

Lindsay Brophy scored five times and handed out an assist to lead Catholic.

The Bobcats visit Bridgewater (Va.) Saturday at 3 p.m.
