Over the weekend, UTC began their Southern Conference slate with a victory in their game against The Citadel Sunday afternoon, 2-0.

 

Both goals were made by sophomore Chloe Arnold, Bristol, Tenn.  The Mocs outshot the Bulldogs 21-8 and had a 13-4 shots on goal advantage. Kelly Brahmbhatt pulled out 11 saves in the loss and Chattanooga keeper, freshman Ashton Shields from Arlington, Tenn., remains unbeaten with a 4-0-2 record that includes four shutouts. Shields currently ranks first in a single season with a 0.47 goals against average.

 

“I think we had a good start with four points out of the first weekend,” Head coach Gavin McKinney said.  “You’ve got 9 opponents on the field so to come out with 4 points is a good start. Even though we would have rather had 6, we are prepared for next weekend.”

 

Arnold, while also being known for being ninth for career points with 36 over her first two seasons, had a game-high five shots with four on goal and two goals. Freshman Hollie Massey, Cheshire, England, with several opportunities to score, had four shots and two on goals.

 

Senior Massey Fox, Greenback, Tenn., and sophomore Lauren Dluzewski, Edmonton, Alberta, added three shots each. Kessy Bradshaw led The Citadel with three shots, two on goal and Logan Dix added two on the day.

 

“Each player shows improvement every week, and they are working together in every play which is one of the best parts about this team,” McKinney explained.  “Overall, the team continually gets better in possession and out of possession. And this goes for the entire roster. They do great work and have great focus overall.”

 

The Mocs will be on the road next weekend with a match Friday at Wofford and Sunday at Furman.
