UTC Soccer Hosts Furman, Wofford To Close Out Regular Season

Thursday, October 19, 2017
The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga women's soccer team will close out the regular season this weekend with a pair of home matches. The Mocs will host Furman Friday night and Wofford Sunday afternoon. On Sunday, UTC will honor its six seniors before the match.
 
The Mocs will be fighting for position in the upcoming Southern Conference Tournament. UTC is currently in seventh place, just three points out of third. Chattanooga's Friday opponent, Furman, is 7-0 against the conference.
Wofford is one point behind the Mocs in the standings, tied for eighth.
 
Chattanooga will honor its six seniors Sunday just prior to its 2 p.m. kickoff at Finley Stadium. The seniors are Mallory Burman, McKenzie Gregg, Brandy Herrera, Abby Linder, Emily Moseley and Amanda Ortiz.
 
Chattanooga and Mercer battled to a double-overtime tie in Macon, Ga. As regulation came to a close, the Mocs defense held off the Bears who had a pair of corner kick opportunities in the final two minutes. Chattanooga blocked a shot to keep it scoreless. Keeper Melia Correa made two strong saves in the last minute of the first overtime. Chattanooga had 12 shots on the day with three on goal. Jordan Mueller and Alex Scearce each had three shots for the Mocs and Anna Moore added two. Correa had 10 saves in the match, two shy of her career-high and recorded her third shutout of the season. Mercer's Isabel Rothschadl led the Bears with a game-high six shots while Ally Fordham and Valeria Bermeo had four shots each.

Chattanooga is 4-8-4 on the year and 2-3-2 in SoCon action, earning five points in the last three games with a win and two ties. All three matches went into double overtime. The Mocs' win came behind a hat trick from freshman Chloe Arnold who had all three goals in UTC's 3-2 double-overtime win at The Citadel. The Mocs earned ties against UNCG and at Mercer.

Arnold leads the Mocs with seven goals and 14 points and has two game winning goals. She ranks seventh in the SoCon for goals and 10th for points. Sophomore Jordan Mueller is second on the team with four goals and 11 points and has a team-best three assists. Redshirt freshman Catherine Meyer is third on the team in scoring with two goals, both game winners, and one assist for five points. Keeper Melia Corra has a 2-4-3 overall record and three shutouts. She has 66 saves this season for a .795 saves percentage and a 1.53 goals against average, allowing 17 goals in 997:08 in net.
