Saturday, November 3, 2007

JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. (Nov. 3, 2007) - Senior Day became a record-breaking day as three records were broken and one tied as the ETSU women's soccer team rolled past the USC Upstate Spartans, 4-0 at Summers-Taylor Stadium. The Bucs improve to 10-5-3 overall and 6-4-1 in the A-Sun, while the Spartans fall to 3-15-0, 1-10-0.


Prior to the start of the game, seniors Hannah Johnson (Soddy-Daisy, Tenn.), Katie O'Bryan (Hampton, Va.), and Aubree Snyder (Reading, Pa.) were honored for their commitment and dedication to the ETSU women's soccer program in a traditional senior day ceremony.


With the victory over USC Upstate the 2007 Bucs became the team season record holders in assists (31) and points (103). The assist record had been previously set at 27 in 2000 while the points record had been set in 2005 at 101. The Bucs also tied the 2003 and 2004 record of six shutouts in a season. One individual season record fell as junior Katie Green (Knoxville, Tenn.) broke the single season assists record with nine, a record that had been previously held by Erin Ashton (New Bern, N.C.) set in 2005.


The Bucs took a 1-0 lead early in the first half as Terri Miller (Cape Coral, Fla.) connected with Katie Green (Knoxville, Tenn.) from 20 yards out and fired a shot over the head of Upstate keeper Brittany Daughtry during the fifth minute of play.


ETSU continued to press the Spartan defense as Jordan Monty (Mesquite, Texas) notched her 10th goal of the season on a pass from Miller to give the Bucs the 2-0 advantage. Four minutes later the Bucs would make it 3-0 as Green shot it past the keeper on a cross from Monty.


In the second period the Bucs would score once more as Miller connected with Monty for the second time to blank the Spartans and close out the regular season with a 4-0 victory.


Miller led the Bucs offensively with five shots, two goals and one assist, while Monty had three shots, one goal and two assists and Green had two shots, one goal and one assist.


ETSU outshot Upstate 18-2 and earned six corner kicks as the Bucs recorded their sixth shutout of the season.


"The play by our forwards was outstanding today and it was great that we could come out with a win today for the seniors," said head coach Heather Henson. "We were able to do some things today to prepare us for the conference tournament next week and that was good but we still have some things we need to work on.


The Bucs will be back in action on Wednesday, November 7 as they travel to Kennesaw, Ga. for the Atlantic Sun Conference Championship. Game time and opponent will be decided after the conclusion of today's other conference matches.
