In college soccer action last week the St. Catharine College men won one and lost one to bring their record to 4-2 for the season. At home Sunday they fell to Shawnee State (Ohio) 1-0. On Saturday the Patriots downed visiting Ohio Christian University 2-0.

The 1-1 week left Paul Patton’s team with a 4-2 record as they ready themselves for Mid-South Conference play that starts Saturday with a game at West Virginia Tech.

The St. Catharine women edged Midway 3-2 Thursday in a road game and returned home to Barber Field on Saturday where they tied St. Mary of the Woods 0-0. The Patriots will now take a 4-1-1 record into the season’s first conference game at West Virginia tech on Saturday.

At Midway, Amy Wurfel and Caitlin Campbell scored in the first half to make the score 2-2. Then early in the second half Krista Russell broke the tie with the game-winning goal and the Patriots held on for the 3-2 win. On Saturday the two teams battled for 110 minutes including a 20 minute overtime but neither team could find the net in the scoreless tie.

“We had many more shots on goal but their keeper made several good saves,” said Patton. “Lee Ann Walker also made a big save for us with less than a minute to go in regulation.”
