Lady Tigers Top Alumni 3-0 in Annual Alumni Match
Aug. 26, 2005
Memphis, Tenn. - In their final tuneup before the regular season begins on Sunday, the women's soccer team defeated a team of women's soccer alumni 3-0 in a scrimmage on Friday afternoon at the Mike Rose Soccer Complex. Freshman Kylie Hayes scored two more goals, bringing her preseason exhibition total to four.
The game was played with just two 30 minutes halves instead of the regular 45. Hayes scored her first goal about midway through the first half, intercepting a goal kick and putting it home in the lower left corner of the goal. It remained 1-0 at halftime. About midway through the second half, Hayes added her second tally of the scrimmage when she was fed a ball by Asuka Kubota from the left side and she chipped a shot over the oncoming goalkeeper, who was attempting to intercept the pass. Finally, with just under two minutes remaining in the second half, freshman Lauren Everhart scored her second goal of the preseason when her shot from about 15 yards out hit the crossbar on the right side of the goal and bounced down and into the net on the left side for the final margin of victory.
The Tigers will now open the regular season on Sunday against Tennessee Tech at 1:00 p.m. at the Mike Rose Soccer Complex.
