|Cardinals break skid; end regular season with a win||Feb 22, 2003|
TOWSON, MD. - Carol and Gloria Schnepp scored 20 of Catholic's 42 second-half points to push the Cardinals past Goucher College, 71-58, Saturday night in a Capital Athletic Conference game. Carol scored 12 points and chipped in six boards and two assists while sister Gloria poured in all of her 11 points in the second half and was credited with a team-high eight caroms and three steals.
Freshman Lindsay DiRomualdo scored a game-high 16 points and junior Kathleen McGlynn added 12 points for the Cardinals (12-13, 7-7 CAC).
Stephanie Tolbert netted 14 points off the bench for Goucher (7-16, 2-12 CAC).
Despite not scoring a field goal for the first six minutes of the game, Catholic remained persistent as DiRomualdo's jumper tied the contest for the first time at 15-15 with just over six minutes in the half. An 8-0 run helped CUA head into the break with a 29-26 lead.
Catholic outscored Goucher 42-32 in the second half as a 9-1 run midway through the second stanza capped off by DiRomualdo's bucket from downtown gave CUA a 55-44 lead.
Goucher gave it one last chance and got within 58-52 with five minutes left before Catholic went on a 6-0 run to put an end to the Gopher comeback.
The Cardinals shot 55.6% (15-of-27) in the second half, going 25-of-57 (43.9%) for the game.
Catholic will return to action on Tuesday in a CAC Tournament First-Round game with St. Mary's. With a St. Mary's loss at Mary Washington tomorrow, Catholic would clinch the No.4 seed and host but if the Seahawks were to win, CUA claim the No.5 seed and would play on the road on Tuesday night.
