Salisbury 6, Catholic 3 Oct 8, 2003

WASHINGTON --- Leading 3-2 at halftime, Catholic saw No.1 (NFHCA) Salisbury score four times in the second half to send the Cardinals to a 6-3 loss Wednesday afternoon in a Capital Athletic Conference game.

The Sea Gulls' Lindsey Elliot scored three times and helped set up two more to pull away from a pesky Catholic squad.

Catholic (3-5, 0-3 CAC) quickly jumped ahead as freshman Jayme Dinsmore (Dunkirk, Md./Northern) scored unassisted just 2:09 into the contest. Elliot would net her first of the day four minutes later to get Salisbury on the board.

Sophomore Melissa Schneider (Haddonfield, N.J./Paul VI) made it 2-1 as she beautifully redirected a centering pass from senior Stephanie Roselle (Red Bank, N.J./Red Bank Catholic) in the 14th minute.

After Elliot tied the game at 2-2, Roselle scored her team-leading fifth goal with just over two minutes in the half. Roselle now has registered a point in four straight games.

But Salisbury (9-0, 3-0 CAC) pulled away in the second half as Elliott assisted on Tracey Lloyd's goal, the eventual game-winner, in the 53rd minute. Elliott would add her third goal in the 58th minute.

CUA goalie Erin Swift (Middletown, N.J./Red Bank Catholic) was kept busy, making 16 saves. Salisbury keeper Melissa Taylor posted six saves while yielding three goals, a season-high. Prior to this game, the Sea Gulls have yielded just one goal in eight contests.

The Cardinals play at Eastern Mennonite University this Saturday, October 11th at 3 p.m.
