Lady Mocs Soccer Falls To 0-8 In Conference Play

Saturday, October 26, 2013

The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga women’s soccer team fell 3-0 Friday night at Elon in Southern Conference action. The Mocs fall to 5-11 on the year and 0-8 against the conference. Elon improves to 12-2-4 overall and 6-1-2 in league play.

The Phoenix, ranked fourth in the nation in scoring offense, scored twice in the first half, but the Mocs managed to hold them to just one goal in the second half. Senior keeper Taylor Mangrum (Franklin, Tenn.) secured 12 saves, her second double-digit saves game this season.

“We played a very strong team,” Chattanooga head coach J.D. Kyzer said of Elon. “They have only lost once in the conference and they’re the No. 4 scoring team in the country. We had three corners tonight and that was three scoring opportunities we couldn’t capitalize on. We didn’t have a lot of scoring chances tonight.”

Elon got on the board in the 11th minute on the first of three goals by Nicole Dennion and assisted by Kimmie Krauss on a breakaway down the left side and a shot to the right post. Her second goal was less than three minutes later. She took a pass from Olivia Mackey and headed it in over Mangrum to give the Phoenix a 2-0 lead.

The Mocs held off the Elon offense the remainder of the half. Dennion recorded the hat trick just over 10 minutes into the second half. She scored from inside the box near the right post and was assisted by Jennifer McGorty and Marissa Russo in the 57th minute.

“She’s a very talented player,” Kyzer said of Dennion. “She beat us on two goals, but her second was really a technical error on our part. The ball just bounced over Taylor’s head.”

Elon outshot the Mocs 25-4 with 15 shots on goal. Sophomore Loryn Queen (Lanesville, Ind.) had two of Chattanooga’s four shots with both on goal while the Mocs remaining shots came from junior Crystal Mackezyk (Columbia, Tenn.) and junior Allie Maguire (Chattanooga, Tenn.)

“I thought we did a good job of holding them off and defended the best we could, but they had more people on the bench than on our active roster,” Kyzer said. “With all of our injuries, we were worried about a team that is high profile in scoring and able to substitute seven players at a time. We basically played against three fresh teams.”

The Mocs will travel to UNCG for a Sunday afternoon matchup in Greensboro, N.C. The game is set to kick off at 2 p.m. Live stats as well as streaming video will be available on the schedule page at GoMocs.com.
