CHATTANOOGA--Tennessee got two goals each from Allison Campbell and Laura
Lauter as the Lady Vols' soccer team shut out Chattanooga 6-0 Friday in an
exhibition match at Finley Stadium.
Tennessee scored five goals in the first 21 minutes of the match. UTC,
however played a nearly even second half and allowed only one goal after
the game's 20-minute mark.
"We were glad to get out on the field and play a game after three tough
weeks of preseason practice," UTC head coach Linda Whitehead said. "Now we
can see what worked out there and what didn't and try to improve."
Tennessee used a trio of goalkeepers for the shutout led by starter Ellen
Dean who played the entire first half. Sarah Shivley and Kim Sgarlata
shared time in the net in the second half.
Kendyl Michner scored with an assist from Heather Handel eight minutes into
the match. Lauter followed with her first goal two minutes later and scored
her second goal of the night in the 26th minute. Campbell's first goal
preceded Lauter's final tally, and she scored one minute later off a pass
from Lauter. Jennifer Laughridge topped off the Lady Vols' scoring with an
unassisted goal with two minutes to play.
The Lady Vols outshot UTC 17-4 and had eight corner kicks.
Chattanooga freshman goalkeeper Rawlslyn Ray played an excellent second
half saving five shots. Midfielder Maria Giannotti was also singled out by
Whitehead for her aggressive play.
The Lady Vols open their season Sept. 1 when they travel to Chapel Hill to
face North Carolina.
