Cardinals Earn 10th Win of the Season at Moravian

BETHLEHEM, Pa. - Seven players registered a point, including five different goal scorers as the Catholic University field hockey team won its fifth consecutive game with a 5-1 Landmark Conference road victory versus Moravian Saturday at John Makuvek Field.

The Cardinals (10-7, 5-1 LC) picked up their 10th win of the season, marking the 15th time in the last 16 seasons that they have won at least 10 games.

The win was also the 43rd for head coach Heidi Lewis, moving her into second place in program history past Mary Milne who went 42-39-3 from 1984-88. Lewis is now 43-26 in four seasons with the Cardinals for a .623 winning percentage.

After a scoreless first quarter, Catholic scored three goals in the second, including two just 20 seconds apart. Sophomore Hannah Bateman scored her sixth goal of the season just over five minutes in off an assist from sophomore Claire Flannery.

With 1:21 remaining, junior Meghan Shallow also scored her sixth goal of the season before junior Anna Baffone netted her first career goal in 37 games on a feed from senior Katie Anderson with 1:01 left.

The Cardinals have four players who have scored six goals this year while Anderson leads the team with eight. Baffone is the 14th different player to register a point this season.

Moravian (4-12, 1-5 LC) scored the first of three third-quarter goals just over three minutes in before Catholic added two more on the first goals of the season for sophomore Katie Murphy and junior Grace Olson.

The Cards outshot the Greyhounds 38-3 and held a 16-3 margin in penalty corners.

Sophomore Maysen Elliott picked up her seventh win of the season after playing the final 45 minutes in relief of freshman Maeve McCarthy. Elliott has won each of her last four decisions.

Catholic hosts a non-conference contest versus Notre Dame (Md.) on Tuesday at 6 p.m., inside Cardinal Stadium.
