UTC Lady Soccer Mocs Fall in rain delayed match 2 nil
CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (GoMocs.com)--- The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga women's soccer team fell 2-0 to Lipscomb in a non-conference battle Sunday night at Finley Stadium. Chattanooga falls to 1-4 overall while the Bison improve to 4-2-1 on the year.
Just as the teams took the field for introductions, action was halted due to inclement weather. A heavy downpour soaked the field and as the sun came out, a double-rainbow showed itself over the northeast end of the stadium.
Following the delay, both teams took the field and a defensive battle ensued. While Lispcomb was able to get off more shots, neither team was able to find the net in the first half. Chattanooga freshman Samantha Hogan () had the best look of the half for either team with a shot from the right side in the box. However, Bison keeper Anna Buhigas was there to make the save and keep the match scoreless.
It would be nearly 79 minutes before the back ripped the back of the net. Lipscomb's Carolyn Springsteen waited in front of the net for the corner kick and was in the right place to snare the game-winner at the 78:20 mark of the game.
Chattanooga pushed the offense as the clock was winding down in an effort to knot it up, but the Bisons' would take advantage and scored their second goal came in the 87th minute on a header from Ellen Lundy to make it 2-0.
Lipscomb outshot Chattanooga 17-5 with a 10-3 shots-on-goal advantage. UTC senior keeper Taylor Mangrum (Franklin, Tenn.) made eight snares while Buhigas made three.
The Mocs host Tennessee Tech Friday night at Finley Stadium. The game is set to kick off at 7 p.m.
