The University of Kentucky women's soccer team captured its fourth straight

victory Friday night as the Wildcats downed the visiting Tennessee Lady

Vols 3-0.

UK (5-2-1, 2-1) was led by junior Jaime Dellbringge who scored a goal and

added an assist in her first start of the season for the Cats.

The Cats erupted for three goals in the second half after missing on

several scoring opportunities in the first half, while outshooting the Lady

Vols (3-5, 2-1) nine to three.

Freshman Keri Boyce opened the scoring for UK at the 47:32 mark when she

netted an eight-yard shot into the right corner of the goal on a deflection

by UT goalkeeper Ellen Dean. The goal was Boyce's fourth of the year.

Midfielder Jen Reese scored her first goal of the season on one-on-one

breakaway at the 54:00 mark off an assist from Dellbringge.

Dellbringge netted a header in the left corner of the net off a free kick.

Annie Gage assisted on Dellbringge's second goal of the season.

UK goalkeeper Beth Wells was brilliant in pitching her second shutout of

the season. Wells recorded eight saves including a diving stop on Allison

Campbell's penalty kick for the Lady Vols with less than four minutes

remaining in the match.

"We weren't able to capitalize on several scoring chances in the first

half, but we came out in the second half and put the ball in the net," UK

coach Warren Lipka said. "It's always big when you beat and SEC team, but

we still have a long way to go. We keep getting better each time we touch

the field."

UT battled Vanderbilt on Sunday, but results were not available at press

time. The Lady Vols return to Knoxville to play UNC-Ashville on Tuesday at

7 p.m. at the Soccer Complex on Neyland Drive.

and 41.2 seconds as Tennessee's lead runner in third place.

Brad Leach and Jon Jamison finished 13th and 18th respectively as the Vols

placed three runners in the top 20.

"It was a very competitive race where we beat some interregional

competition to finish second," Tennessee head coach George Watts said. "We

beat Florida which is a good win for us. Famiglietti was in contention all

the way. He finished third and had an All-American type of
