CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. --- For the third time in four games, the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga went into double-overtime coming up with a 1-1 draw against Western Carolina in Southern Conference women's soccer action Friday night at Finley Stadium.

Western Carolina got the first score thanks to a well-placed corner kick from Laura Greb that glanced off a pair of Chattanooga players at the front of the goal and into the net in the ninth minute of play.

The Lady Mocs responded with the equalizer from sophomore Becca Smith (Murfreesboro, Tenn.) from about 20 yards out on the left. Western Carolina's keeper Caitlin Williams was unable to get a handle on the ball as it crossed the goal line to tie it up at the 35:22 mark of the game.

Chattanooga dominated play keeping the Catamounts from even taking a shot until 75th minute of play. The Lady Mocs outshot WCU 34-6 with 12 shots on goal to the Cats five.

Williams had 11 saves for Western Carolina while Chattanooga keeper freshman Taylor Mangrum (Franklin, Tenn.) had four on the night.

Chattanooga will return to action at Finley Stadium Sunday afternoon against Appalachian State at 1 p.m. and admission is free. Live stats and video streaming will be available at GoMocs.com.
