Soccer season ends well short of state tourney for Lady Ads
No. 5 Farragut upset by West in region semis

Despite a disappointing — and somewhat surprising — 3-1 loss to West in the Region 2-AAA semifinals that ended the Farragut High School girls soccer season, FHS head coach Dennis Lindsay still branded 2005 “very successful.”

Following heavy graduation losses last seasons, “We weren’t expected to do anything, then we lost more players,” Lindsay said about the No. 9-ranked Class AAA team in the state beginning the week that finished the season 14-5-5 with a District 4-AAA tourney title.

“We did better than most people thought we had a chance to do.”

As for his eight seniors who played their final game Tuesday, Oct. 18, at FHS’s Bill Clabo Field, “My seniors, they showed good leadership this year, I was proud of them,” Lindsay said. “They were very coachable, they would do anything I asked.”

All-state midfielder Jessica Stephens, a senior, led the Lady Admirals in both goals scored during 2005 (24) and assists (10). Other top goal scorers were junior Kathleen Jarvis with nine and senior Lauren Rosch with eight.

Three FHS girls tied for second in assists with seven each: seniors Katy Maurer, Catelyn Dake and Rosch.

Other Farragut seniors are Amanda Cramer, Chelsie Dolak, Caroline Hemeter and Taryn Marashi.

“We played the toughest schedule around, and I feel we could have beaten any team in the state,” Lindsay said. “Of course, there’s several that could beat us, too.”


Despite out-shooting West 22-7, “They just played a heck of a ballgame and beat us,” Lindsay said about the Region 2-AAA semi-final loss to West Oct. 18. “They had real good shots.”

Sarah Fisher scored the only FHS goal, assisted by Shannon Schell.

“We played hard, and of course we dominated by getting that many shots, we just couldn’t put ’em in,” Lindsay said. “It wasn’t meant to be.”

This season is the first in recent high school girls soccer history that neither Farragut nor Bearden reached the Region 2-AAA championship game to qualify for Sectionals.
