Lady Ads edge BHS again — for region crown

For the third time this season, the Farragut Lady Admirals came out on top of rival Bearden.

However, this time it was for the Region 2-AAA girls soccer championship.

After two overtime periods, two sudden death periods and a shootout, it was the Lady Admirals that came out with a 1-0 victory after winning the shootout 4-3 Thursday, Oct. 26, at FHS’s Bill Clabo Field.

Senior Kathleen Jarvis scored the winning goal for the Lady Admirals, but it was sophomore goalkeeper Megan Buzzeo that kept Farragut in the game.

“We ran into a hot keeper again tonight,” Bearden head coach Eric Turner said. “We just couldn’t crack her. I thought we had the better chances but their keeper made the saves she had to make.”

Of all of Bearden’s chances to score, the best opportunity may have been in the ninth minute. Sophomore Amy Porter got by Buzzeo, but hesitation on the shot allowed Farragut defender Emily Harris to knock it away from goal.

“They took it too us, there is no question about it,” Farragut head coach Dennis Lindsay said. “We were very fortunate in this game.”

Despite the chances, Bearden couldn’t find the net and when the match was sent to a shootout, Buzzeo was confident that her team would come out with the win. “The game was amazing,” Buzzeo said. “Each person on the team worked their butts off and in the end it worked out.”

A diving save on Alex Meehan’s first shot in the shootout proved she was ready.

“I’ve done it before, but I wasn’t a hundred percent comfortable with them,” Buzzeo said about the shootout. “You pretty much just have to go with what you see.”

Farragut’s Casey Ulrich had her shot hit off the top crossbar and away from the goal.

Mary Alex Rochester then lined a shot wide right.

Serena Allen gave the Lady Admirals the advantage by hitting a shot off the hand of Bearden goalie Sarah Canter.

Amanda Barton answered with a goal of her own to even the score.

Farragut’s Mary Allen Suhocki drove her shot past Canter to regain the lead, but Bearden senior Hannah Rudder notched the score again.

Lauren Ward lined one in and Whitley Cole answered to make it 3-3. J

arvis then ended it.

“It’s unfortunate but if you are going to lose in P-K’s, this is the game to do it because no one goes home,” Turner said. “It’s just Bearden-Farragut, it’s just the way it is sometimes. You never know what is going to happen and the ball bounces funny ways. I give it up to their keeper, Buzzeo, she made a lot of great saves and she single-handedly kept them in the game.”
