UTC's Arnold Scores Lone Goal In Women's Soccer Win

Sunday, September 24, 2017
University of Tennessee at Chattanooga freshman Chloe Arnold’s goal, late in the match proved to be the game winner as the Mocs defeated Western Carolina 1-0 Sunday afternoon in Southern Conference women’s soccer action.
Chattanooga improves to 3-6-2 on the year and 1-1 in SoCon action while the Catamounts move to 3-7-1 overall and 0-2 against the league.
“Hard fought win on the road,” Chattanooga head coach Gavin McKinney said. “Western Carolina is not an easy place to come and get points.
They are a hard working team so we are very happy with the result.”
Arnold, unassisted, got past the Catamount defense at the 85:37 mark of the match for her third goal of the year and first game winner.
“Chloe took her goal well,” McKinney said. “She pinched the ball from an underhit back pass, closed in on the goal and slotted it into the corner.”
Chattanooga was outshot 11-5 by WCU, with the Mocs taking three in the second half. Arnold and redshirt freshman Catherine Meyer each had two shots on the day with one on goal.
Bailey Coppedge, making her fourth start of the season, picked up her second win as well as her second shutout. She had four saves Sunday and sports a 1.00 goals against average on the year.
Western Carolina’s leading scorer Sayres McKenna had a game-high four shots with two on goal. Megan McCallister with two shots, one on goal, was the only other Catamount with multiple shots.
“This was a true team win,” McKinney said. “We had players really step up and perform.”
Chattanooga wraps up its six-game road swing Friday night at Samford. The match is set to kick off at 8:00 p.m. Eastern time.

Why do we allow one or two or three repeat vandals to mar our venerable Walnut Street Bridge, the pillars to the Holmberg Bridge, the remodeled Chief John Ross Market Street Bridge, the walls along our multi-million-dollar Riverwalk, our sidewalks, street signs and our old limestone ...
