Austin Peay Tops Mocs Soccer 2-1

Sunday, September 9, 2018
The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga women’s soccer team dropped a 2-1 decision at Austin Peay on a humid Sunday afternoon in Clarksville. Chattanooga falls to 3-4-1 on the year while the Lady Govs improve to 5-2 overall.

“Tough game with tough conditions,” Chattanooga head coach Gavin McKinney said. “Credit Austin Peay for making it difficult for us.”

Chattanooga struck first with Hollie Massey netting her second goal of the year. She launched a shot from outside the box that found the back of the net at the 21:37 mark of the match to give the Mocs an early lead that held up through halftime.

Austin Peay outshot the Chattanooga 15-3 in the first half, but failed to get the ball past keeper Melia Correa who had six first half saves.
However, the second half would belong to the Lady Govs who scored both goals in the latter frame.

Morgan Drawdy scored the first in the 51st minute for APSU. Katie Kenward’s cross was picked up by Drawdy who shot it past Correa for the equalizer. She would score the game winner on a penalty kick with 63:22 gone in the match.

Austin Peay outshot the Mocs 19-8 and held an 8-5 shots on goal advantage. Mary Parker Powell had four saves in the match and Correa ended with six. Chattanooga’s Lauren Dluzewski led the Mocs with three shots and Bailey Gale added two, both on goal. Lady Govs’ McKenzie Dixon had a game-best seven shots with four on goal but was unable to get through Correa and the Mocs’ tough defense.

“We hope to bounce back on Thursday night with a better performance,” McKinney said.

The Mocs return home to close out the non-conference slate on Thursday, September 13 with a 7:00 p.m. matchup at Finley Stadium against Division I newcomer North Alabama. Admission is free and the gates will open one hour prior to kickoff.

HES Can't Be Matched, Replicated Or Cheaply Duplicated
