Lady Mocs' Soccer nets win, tie at King Spring Invitational
BRISTOL, Tenn. (GoMocs.com)--- The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga women's soccer team came away with a 2-1 victory over Carson-Newman and a 1-1 draw against host King University in a pair of scrimmages at the King Spring Invitational Saturday afternoon.
Junior Skylar Brewer(Farragut, Tenn.) scored the Mocs first goal against Carson-Newman and sophomore Hailey Callis (Jackson, Mo.) notched the game winner in Chattanooga's first test of the spring season under first-year head coach Gavin McKinney.
In the match against King, Brewer again scored first for the Mocs, but a strike from freshman Abby Linder(Germantown, Tenn.) with 20 seconds remaining would have sealed the victory for UTC. However, it was thwarted with a great save by the King keeper to preserve the tie.
"There are a lot of positives to take from the day," McKinney said. "It served as a great learning experience for us as a squad going forward."
The Mocs will travel to Huntsville, Ala., next weekend for a scrimmage against UAH on Satruday.
