UTC Women Host Wofford In SoCon Soccer Opener

Monday, October 25, 2021
The Chattanooga women’s soccer team will play host to Wofford Tuesday evening in the first round of the Southern Conference Tournament. The Mocs tied the Terriers for eighth in the league standings and, by way of a tie-break, earned the No. 8 seed and will host the ninth-seeded Terriers.

The match is set to kick off at 6:00 p.m. at the UTC Sports Complex. Admission and parking are free for the event and will be aired LIVE on ESPN+. Live scoring will also be available. Links for both can be found on the women’s soccer schedule page at GoMocs.com.

Admission and parking are free for the match.
UTC’s clear-bag policy will be in effect.

Chattanooga beat Wofford 1-0 just two weeks ago on Senior Day. Grace Klippenstein scored her first collegiate goal in the victory while the Mocs celebrated seniors Maddie Burman and Samantha Shaw prior to kick off.

The Terriers lead the series by a 15-8-4 margin, however, Chattanooga has claimed victory in the last six meetings dating back to 2016 and a draw in 2015, McKinney’s first season.

It was against Wofford in 2019 that the Mocs came away with a weather-shortened 3-0 victory, giving McKinney his 100th collegiate victory. The game went into the 85th minute before lightning called a halt to the action for 1:07. The teams returned to the pitch at 9:00 p.m. but another bolt of lightning ended the match just one minute later.

This will be the second meeting between the two teams in the SoCon Tournament. Wofford beat Chattanooga 5-0 in Spartanburg, S.C., in the 2014 meeting. The Terriers were the #7 seed and Chattanooga, without a goal keeper that season due to injury, was the #10 seed. McKenzie Gregg, a defender, was the Mocs’ seventh different keeper of the year. She made 14 saves in the match and allowed just one goal by the Terrier offense that took 15 shots in the half.

This will be the second time UTC has been the No. 8 seed in the southern Conference Tournament. UTC was No. 8 in McKinney’s first season, 2015, and fell 4-2 on PKs against VMI at home after a double-overtime scoreless draw.

My friend and classmate Todd Gardenhire is sadly off base when he lobbies for doubling the pay of the school board.

We could do away with the school board and not skip a beat and that's the truth. Please … all the school board does is hire ... (click for more)
