The Patriots scored three goals in each half and had many more opportunities that were turned away by some excellent play from Mountaineer goalkeeper Katie Downey who had 13 saves. St. Catharine fired 31 shots overall and 19 on goal while Berea had no shots for the game.
Kelsey Pendleton, Sara Herbert and Sarah Castillo scored goals in the first half. Herbert added another goal in the second half and Krista Russell had the other two goals. Herbert and Castillo had one assist each as did Chelsey Landrum and Michelle Dunaway.
The Patriot women return to play Wednesday at 2:00 in a home match versus Mid-South Conference foe, University of the Cumberlands. That is the first game of a women's / men’s doubleheader.
