BHS, FHS soccer roll

The Bearden Lady Bulldogs soccer team is back on track after notching wins over West and Lenoir City.

After being handed their first loss of the year against Farragut Sept. 14, the Lady Bulldogs (9-1-2 overall record entering the week) got revenge with a 2-0 victory over rival West Tuesday, Sept. 19, at home.

“I thought we played extremely well,” Bearden head coach Eric Turner said. “Our defense did a great job, especially our younger players Tessa Batchelor and Taylor Cravanas in the back. I thought they did an outstanding job and really kind of made up for the game they had against Farragut.”

Meanwhile, Farragut improved to 9-3 entering the week with a 3-0 shutout at Maryville Sept. 18.

Goals by Kathleen Jarvis — who was praised by FHS head coach Dennis Lindsay for “stepping up her game” — along with Mindy Hopkins and Alyssa Dresen led the way. Ruth Cook had an assist.


Against West, Amy Porter got Bearden started with a goal in the 7th minute on an assist from Batchelor. Emily Bithorn added the second goal in the 69th minute from a Caroline Lutz assist to seal the deal for the Lady Bulldogs, who outshot West 16-5.

The Lady Bulldogs continued to play well Thursday, Sept. 21, by beating Lenoir City 5-0 on the road. Bearden got two goals each from Porter and Mary Alex Rochester. Amanda Barton also scored. Bithorn had two assists, while Jennifer Gordon, Brenna Mayfield and Porter also contributed assists.

“Hannah Rudder had an outstanding week even though she didn’t score any goals or have any assists,” Turner said. “Her intensity level and everything she did from the Farragut game through the Lenoir City game has played outstanding, she played awesome.”
