Hannah Henry scored two goals and Kendra Jolly had two saves in goal as Chattanooga Christian defeated host Soddy Daisy, 4-1, Tuesday in a girls high school soccer match.

Meg  Ligon and Allie Vannoy also scored for the victorious Chargers, while Miranda Smith scored for Soddy Daisy.

""We did a good job of finding our teammates and creating scoring opportunities on offense and did a decent job of defending," said CCS coach Cal Sneller.

"We were able to win most of the balls out of  the air led by Allie Vannoy, Hannah Henry and Leah Hoffman."

The Trojans got on the board first as Smith made it 1-0 at 29:42 of the first half, but CCS evened the match 1-1 on Meg Ligon's goal with less than four  minutes before intermission.

Soddy Daisy controlled the tempo early in the second half with a few shots, including a Smith shot just 35 seconds into the final 40 minutes which was wide.

"We changed our offense to create some scoring opportunities early on, but could not get the ball in the back of the net," said Soddy Daisy coach Moises Drumond.

Allie Vannoy scored what proved to be the winning goal in the 61st minute, followed by a pair of Hannah Henry goals in the final 13 minutes.

Just Missed: Sara Farlett (CCS) had  a shot hit the cross bar in the ninth minute of play ... Shelby Balch (CCS) hit the post in the 66th minute ... Miranda Smith (SD) hit the post in the 67th minute.

CCS outshot the Trojans, 21-12, and led in corner kicks, 3-1.
