Last Time Out
The Bucs (4-7, 3-0) continued its winning streak in a strong start to Southern Conference play with a 1-0 win at Western Carolina last Friday.
With the win, ETSU is off to a 3-0 start vs. SoCon opponents for the first time since 2015.
Sophomore forward Sarah Connolly (Ballygowan, Northern Ireland), who scored four of ETSU’s seven goals in the 7-1 win over Wofford last Sunday, scored the lone goal of the Western Carolina game in the 14th minute.
The Bucs’ defense held strong against the Catamounts, as senior goalkeeper Lea Ann Cutshall (Johnson City, Tenn.) recorded her third shutout of the year with four saves. In the previous three contests, Cutshall was averaging nearly 11 saves per game before a stifling ETSU defense limited Western Carolina to four shots on goal.
The Bucs return 19 letterwinners to this year’s squad, including 10 seniors and 10 starters from 2017.
Two seniors on this year’s squad, Lea Ann Cutshall and Eleonora Goldoni (Ferrara, Italy), are working their way up the career record books in their respective goalkeeping and scoring categories.
Cutshall, a Johnson City native and Science Hill High School alum, is three shutouts away from breaking the all-time school record for career shutouts. Also, her 181 career saves rank second on the all-time ETSU list, as she moved past Megan Masch at Charlotte this season. Jasmine Elliott holds the career saves record with 218 saves from 2013-16.
Goldoni is currently tied for second on the all-time list in goals scored for ETSU with 31, needing four to tie the all-time record held by Erin Ashton (2002-06) at 35. Goldoni is also second in career shots (164), third in shots on goal (82) and fourth in all-time points (69) and game winners (6).
The Bucs added four players this offseason, filling depth at every position with the signings of forward Sydney Cavendar (Scott Depot, W. Va.), midfielder Sarah Williams (Murfreesboro, Tenn.) and goalkeeper Tess Mrozek (Johnson City, Tenn.) and defender Marina Bradic (Medvedja, Serbia).
After starting the season 0-6 against a tough slate of opponents, the King College Tornado picked up their first win of the 2018 campaign Saturday against North Greenville with a 2-1 win.
King competes on the Division II level of NCAA and is a member of Conference Carolinas. King College’s main campus is located in nearby Bristol, Tenn.
All five goals for King this season have came from five different individuals — Jaida Souvannaraj, Morgan Johnson, Anya Gross, Lizzie Boone and Emaleigh Adcox. Adcox had the game-winning goal in the 80th minute Saturday against North Greenville.
Between the pipes, Hannah Clements and Lindsey Durham split time at goalkeeper. Clements sees most of the time with 495:00 minutes and 37 saves for a .617 save percentage. Durham has appeared in three games with 225:00 minutes and 18 saves for a .581 save percentage.
ETSU holds the only win of the series, with the lone official match between the two sides taking place in 2010 in Johnson City. The Bucs earned a 2-0 victory in that contest.
