JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. (Sept. 21, 2014) - For the first time all season, the ETSU women's soccer team was held scoreless, falling to in-state foe Tennessee Sunday night, 3-0, in non-conference action. ETSU entered the match as the nation's top scoring offense, averaging 4.38 goals per contest.

The Lady Vols (5-4) outshot ETSU, 11-3, in the first half; however the Bucs (8-2) showed an improved performance in the second half, outshooting Tennessee, 8-7.

In the loss, junior Hannah Short (Bristol, England) saw her streak of 10 consecutive matches with a goal come to an end. Short's streak ranks 7th all-time in the NCAA Division I Women's Soccer Record Book.

Amy Neal recorded one goal and one assist for the Lady Vols. Neal's 15th-minute goal gave Tennessee an early, 1-0 advantage that the Lady Vols continued to build upon.

Tennessee's Gabby Santorio and Susan Ferguson scored in the 36th and 77th minutes, respectively.

The shutout was the Lady Vols' fourth clean sheet of the season.
