CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (Oct. 7, 2018) – For the second time in two games, a goal right before the horn proved to be costly for the ETSU women’s soccer team as Chattanooga earned a 1-0 victory at Finley Stadium Sunday afternoon.
Chattanooga scored the opening goal just before the halftime whistle, bringing momentum back to the locker room off Emily Syzmanski’s goal with 29 seconds remaining on the clock. That late score would prove to be enough.
Despite conceiting the tapper, senior goalkeeper Lea Ann Cutshall (Johnson City, Tenn.) recorded five saves in the contest — limiting the Mocs to the lone score.
ETSU continued its efficiency strategy under head coach Adam Sayers as the Bucs posted seven shots with five shots on goal. Chattanooga put six shots on goal on 17 attempts while producing eight corners — all of which ETSU combatted away on initial contact.
With the loss, ETSU falls to 5-8 and 3-2 in SoCon play, while the Mocs improve to 8-5-2 and 4-1-1 in the conference.
The Bucs now have four regular season games remaining, as this coming weekend marks the final two-game homestand of the 2018 season.
ETSU will first host VMI on Friday, Oct. 12 at 7 p.m. for senior night where the Bucs will honor its 11 seniors.
Those 11 ETSU seniors will then play their final game at Summers-Taylor Stadium two days later, hosting UNCG on Sunday, Oct. 14 at 2 p.m.
