UTC Soccer Battles Eastern Kentucky To 0-0 Tie

Sunday, August 20, 2017

The UTC women’s soccer team battled to a 0-0 tie against Eastern Kentucky Sunday afternoon at Finley Stadium in non-conference action.


The Mocs remain unbeaten at 1-0-1 while Eastern Kentucky moves to 0-1-1 on the year.


“There’s a reason why they were co-regular season champions in the Ohio Valley Conference last year and made a run to the conference tournament championship game,” Chattanooga head coach Gavin McKinney said.

“They are really organized and tough to break down. They’re intelligent when they go forward with their movement. They’re a really tough opponent.”


Both teams proved a staunch opponent on the field with each getting off 11 shots in 110:00 minutes of play. At the end of regulation each team had fired off nine shots with Eastern Kentucky getting two shots in the first overtime and the Mocs shooting twice in the second.


Sophomore Jordan Mueller (Hendersonville, Tenn.) had four shots in the match with two on goal. Freshman Chloe Arnold (Bristol, Tenn.) got off three shots with one on goal. Sophomore keeper Melia Correa (Clarksville, Tenn.) made four saves, playing every minute in the net.


“We competed really well together,” Arnold said. “The heat kind of killed us, but we pushed through. I think that us doing that showed real resilience as a team. They were a tough side, but I think we played really well against them.”


“Overall I thought it was a really even game, chances on both sides,” McKinney said. “A little bit more quality from us in a couple of situations and maybe we walk away with a win. Chloe [Arnold] had a fantastic chance and Jo [Jordan Mueller] had a couple of headers that barely missed. We had our opportunities for sure.”


The Mocs will hit the road for a Friday evening match at Radford and a Sunday afternoon contest at former Southern Conference foe Elon. Follow the action on GoMocs.com.

You May Not Want To Call It “American” Football

As of Sept. 21, with a 4-0 record, St. Andrew’s-Sewanee School had the third ranked 8-man football team in the state of Tennessee. Pretty remarkable for a school for which a winning football tradition has not been the norm. Even more remarkable when one notes that one-quarter of the team is not from the United States and did not grow up playing American football.   ... (click for more)
