CHATTANOOGA GAME NOTES
The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga women’s soccer team remains on the road Sunday for its second game of the 2014 season and a shot to get a tally in the win column. The Mocs will take on Austin Peay, also in search of its first win this season.
SCOUTING AUSTIN PEAY (0-1)
The Lady Govs fell 3-0 to Evansville in the season opener. After playing to a draw in the first half, the Purple Aces rallied for three second half goals and the win. Austin Peay fell in both preseason exhibition games dropping its first match 1-0 to Indiana State the losing 5-0 to Kentucky. Austin Peay head coach Kelly Guth enters her 13th season at the helm. Her roster features four seniors and 11 newcomers for a squad picked to finish fifth in the OVC. The Lady Govs have reached at least the semifinals of the OVC Tournament three times in the last four years, but lost to graduation, eight veterans. One returning player to the squad is all-conference performer Gina Fabbaro and all-tournament selection Shelby Olszewski.
SCOUTING CHATTANOOGA (0-1)
The Mocs dropped their season opener Friday night at UNC Asheville by a slim 2-1 margin. Three freshmen combined with senior Crystal Mackezyk to score the team’s lone goal in the second half, cutting the Bulldogs lead in half. The first half was controlled by Asheville, but UTC only allowed one goal as junior Lauren Thomas made diving saves and came out of the net to challenge to opponents. However, an injury in the second half pulled her from the game and tested freshman Hannah Dunn who made five saves in the loss and didn’t allow a single goal.
