Lady Mocs Soccer Win 3-2

Saturday, October 19, 2013

The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga women’s soccer team got goals from three different players to snare a 3-2 win over Francis Marion Friday night at Finley Stadium in non-conference play. The Mocs improve to 5-9 on the year while the Patriots remain winless at 0-14.

Chattanooga’s first goal came off a corner kick from senior Andria Aurand (Hixson, Tenn.). She sent the kick to the far side of the goal where it was picked up by junior Crystal Mackezyk (Columbia, Tenn.) who sent a header to sophomore Clare Latham (Cordova, Tenn.) in front of the net to put the Mocs up 1-0 in the 12th minute. That score would stand through the remainder of the first half.

It wouldn’t take long in the second half for Chattanooga to take a 2-0 advantage. At the 48:47 mark of the game, Mackezyk sent a pass from the left side to senior Kelly Crew (Brisbane, Australia) at the top of the box and she would get the shot past the Francis Marion keeper for her first goal of the year.

The Patriots would charge back with a pair of goals to tie it up 2-2. Yasmin Bunter sent a pass from the left side to Allie Duckworth just outside the six-yard box to cut UTC’s lead to 2-1 in the 51st minute. In the 64th minute, FMU’s leading scorer Chanel Harris picked up a pass from Bunter on a free kick from the right side to make it a 2-2 affair with just over 26 minutes to play.

The final score of the game would come in the 76th minute. Mackezyk recorded her third assist of the game as she sent a pass to freshman Monica Speth (Janesville, Wisc.) whose shot from the left side hit off the left post and bounced across to hit the post on the right and crossed the goal line for the game winner.

Senior Taylor Mangrum recorded nine saves for her fourth win of the year. The Patriots had a chance to tie it up with less than two minutes on a shot from Caroline Edmonds, but it was scooped up by Mangrum to preserve the victory.

Chattanooga will return to action Sunday afternoon in the regular season home finale. The Mocs will honor seniors Andria Aurand, Kelly Crew and Taylor Mangrum prior to the match against The Citadel that kicks off at 2 p.m.

Roy Exum: The Readers Are Right

It is hardly a secret that since I have become intensely interested in public education in Chattanooga, I have tried to read, research and understand how our efforts have fallen horribly short in the last 15 years. We agree we have a crisis on many fronts and I hope it is equally obvious I am desperate for solutions. Much like school board member Karista Jones, I worry that we are ... (click for more)
