Georgia Soccer Splits Pair Of Games In Knoxville

March 26, 2011

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. --- The Georgia soccer team split a pair of spring games against Tennessee and UNC Greensboro Saturday at Regal Stadium. The Bulldogs fell to the Lady Vols 2-1 in the first game, but rebounded with a 3-0 win over UNCG in the second game.

Against Tennessee, Ashley Miller scored the first goal of the game to the upper 90 from 20 yards out. Rising senior Jamie Pollock had the assist, and Georgia took a 1-0 lead.

Tennessee then scored from a cleared corner kick that was redirected back in and hit past UGA goalkeeper Ashley Baker.

The Lady Vols scored to go up 2-1 from another corner kick that went in after a scramble in the box. Neither team scored in the second half, and Tennessee held on for the win.

Against UNCG, Miller scored her second goal of the day when she beat two players on the dribble, then put a sliding shot past the goalkeeper from six yards out.

Nicole Locandro scored the second goal off a one-time finish from a cross by Holly Tomlinson, and the Bulldogs led 2-0 at halftime.

Torri Allen scored the third goal after Locandro slotted a ball in behind the Spartans' back line, putting Allen in a one-on-one with the UNCG goalkeeper. Allen beat the goalkeeper on the dribble and finished to give Georgia a 3-0 lead.

Caitlin Woody earned her third shutout of the spring for the Bulldogs.

"While we were disappointed to give up two corner kick goals in the first game I thought we did well to turn things around against UNCG," Georgia coach Steve Holeman said. "We established a great rhythm, moved the ball well and created a lot of good looks at goal."



Georgia's next game is Tuesday against the Atlanta Beat of the WPS. The game is scheduled for 7 p.m., and admission is free at the UGA Soccer Stadium.
