Dalton State Women's Soccer Gets 1st Win At Johnson

Wednesday, September 11, 2019 - by Erik Simpson
The Lady Roadrunners got win number one with a 5-0 road win at Johnson (Tenn.) in Knoxville, Tenn. on Tuesday night.
 
It proved to be all Dalton State in this one and it got started early. Shot after shot rained down on Johnson goalkeeper Jallie Bullock. She held her own early, but the barrage of balls that headed her way finally got to her.
 
In the 30', the Lady Roadrunners finally got on the board as Andrea Lopez received a ball from Adriana Delgado and finished for a 1-0 lead.
The Lady Birds relaxed from there and played hard defense limiting the chances for the Lady Royals and took the one goal advantage into the break.
 
Dalton State had one goal in mind in the second half, score. They did just that and it began with an Andrea Soto Calderon goal in the 58'.
 
Lopez scored for the second time in the 63' on an assist from junior Keyle Snyder to put the Lady Roadrunners up 3-0. Delgado added to her assist from earlier in the match with a goal in the 79' from Selina Vazquez.
 
Polishing off the win was Vazquez, who like Delgado, added to her assist with a goal in the 82'. When the horn sounded, it was the Lady Birds who came out victorious with their first win of the season, 5-0.
 
Dalton State improves to (1-2 overall) with the win, while Johnson (Tenn.) falls to (0-3 overall) with the loss. Senior Andrea Lopez led the Lady Roadrunners with two goals and one assist on nine total shots, five on goal.
 
Andrea Soto Calderon, Adriana Delgado, and Selina Vazquez each had goals with Delgado and Vazquez adding assists to their stat lines. Soto Calderon was second on the team with five shots and two shots on goal.
 
Freshman Mattie Dollar had a quiet night in goal with one save, but still collected the first clean sheet of her career. Shots and shots on goal were decidedly in the favor of Dalton State as the Lady Birds outshot the Lady Royals (30-1) overall and (13-1) on goal.
 
Johnson (Tenn.) starting goalie Jallie Bullock collected 10 saves and only allowed one goal before giving way to Alexandra Moshe and Alex Elrod. Moshe allowed the final four Lady Roadrunner goals and saved two shots, while Elrod got less playing time and didn't receive a shot on goal.
 
The Lady Roadrunners will have six days off before they face the same Johnson (Tenn.) squad at Lakeshore Park on Monday, September 16. Kickoff is scheduled for 6:00 p.m.

However in February 2019, Lake Resort Drive was reduced to one lane when part of the road failed ... (click for more)

Donna Deweese, who handles special events for the hospital, wrote that I might get to sit with my ageless ... (click for more)
