Sunday, August 31, 2014
MEMPHIS, Tenn. -- Trying to get into the win column for the first time this year, the Covenant women's soccer team was unable to break through as they were shutout for a second straight match, this time 3-0 to UT-Dallas on Saturday afternoon in Memphis.

Covenant falls to 0-2 on the year, while UT-Dallas moves to 2-0.

UT-Dallas got two goals from Samantha Huston, while Megan Mugavero chipped in a goal and an assist. Alissa Burch was the other Comets player who got on the board, notching one assist.


Despite being outshot 13-1, the Lady Scots were able to play UT-Dallas to a draw in the first half. Covenant keeper Lucy Johnson made five saves in the opening period, helping keep Covenant in the match.

UT-Dallas was able to break through in the second half, when Huston chipped it in past Johnson on a feed from Mugavero in the 63rd minute. Mugavero got her own goal less than 15 minutes later when she scored in the 77th minute, with Burch assisting. Huston would tally another goal in the 87th minute to make it 3-0 and round out the scoring.

The Comets would finish up with 26 total shots, 10 of them on target. The Lady Scots, on the other hand, generated four shots total, requiring Comet goalkeeper Macaire Ament to make three saves on her way to the shutout.

Johnson played the entire match, making seven saves. Jessica Rowe had two shots on goal, while Anne Charlotte Strawbridge had one.
