UTC Women Lose At UNCG 3-0

Friday, October 19, 2018

 The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga Fell 3-0 to second place UNCG Friday night at the UNCG Soccer Stadium in Southern Conference women’s soccer action.

 

The Mocs fall to 8-7-2 overall and 4-3-1 in league play.

The Spartans remain one point behind Samford for the top spot in the league, improving to 7-1 in conference play and 12-3-1 on the year.

 

Chattanooga came out strong. Hollie Massey fired off the first of three shots for the Mocs in the first nine minutes of play. The Spartans held a 9-6 shots advantage in the first half and the Mocs were outshot 16-12 in the match with UNCG registering nine shots on goal to the Mocs’ six.

 

“We started the game very positively, but UNCG grew into the match as it went,” Chattanooga head coach Gavin McKinney said. “They are well organized and difficult to play against, so credit them for getting the result.”

 

UNCG’s Quiqui Hita picked up a cross in the box late in the first half for her first goal of the season and the first of the game. Caroline Fiorella, assisted by Cienna Rideout, made it a 2-0 game in the 64th minute but it would be the goal at the 88:06 mark by Nicole Souply that would seal it for UNCG.

 

Chloe Arnold led the offense for the Mocs with four shots and one on goal. Maggie Shaw and Bailey Gale each got off two shots apiece with one of Gale’s getting stopped by the Spartan keeper.

 

Hita and Souply each had a team-best four shots for UNCG with one goal apiece. Rideout, with three shots, assisted on a goal while Fiorella, with one goal, had two shots along with Jordin Mosley.

 

Mocs’ keeper Ashton Shields had five saves and the Mocs were able to make a team save early in the contest.

 

“We must remain positive and refocus going into Sunday,” McKinney said. “We have a lot to play for going forward.”

 

Chattanooga will close out the regular season Sunday at VMI. The Keydets are 0-8 in league play after going undefeated outside of the SoCon.

 

Mercer beat ETSU 2-1 in double overtime to jump past UTC for fourth. The Mocs are two points behind the third place Bucs, one behind Mercer and one ahead of Furman and Western Carolina in the standings.
