Bearden girls soccer enters week perfect; Lady Ads 8-2
Reveiz scoring punch aids FHS; Buzzeo back

The Bearden girls soccer team continues to roll, picking up two more wins to improve its record to 6-0 entering the week.

Bearden hosted McMinn County Thursday, Aug. 30, and came out with a 5-0 win. The Lady SoccerDawgs, defending Class AAA state champions, started out the week defeating West 4-0 Tuesday, Aug. 28, on the road.

More details on Bearden later in this story.

Meanwhile, a “leg weary” Farragut Lady Admirals team suffered its first two losses of 2007 after an 8-0 start, but may have found another potent scorer to go with All-state forward Casey Ulrich — freshman Ashley Reveiz.

That’s in addition to the sooner than expected return of junior goalkeeper Megan Buzzeo, a returning starter from 2006 who was orginally listed as out for the season with a broken collarbone, FHS head coach Dennis Lindsey said in early August.

“That’s very good news, she’s a very good keeper,” Lindsay said.

As for running out of gas, “We’ve played nine games in 10 days, in the end we were leg weary,” Lindsay said Sunday night after his team concluded four games in the annual Katie Hunter Invitational in Oak Ridge Aug. 31-Sept. 2. By Sunday, “We just didn’t have any fuel in the tank.”

Farragut’s first loss this season came to Houston, 2-0 Saturday evening, and was followed with a 2-1 setback to Collierville Sunday.

But those setbacks came after four wins last week. After dumping Maryville 6-0 Aug. 28 at FHS’s Bill Clabo Field, the Lady Admirals whipped defending Class A/AA champion Christian Academy of Knoxville 4-2 Thursday, Aug. 30.

Originally scheduled to be played at FHS, the game was moved to CAK on short notice due to electrical problems at Farragut Stadium, meaning the lights wouldn’t work according to Lindsay.

The Lady Ads opened Katie Hunter play Friday, Aug. 31, with a 5-0 blanking of Columbia Central, then rallied from a 2-0 deficit Saturday to whip Memphis Briarcrest 4-2.

More detail on the Lady Ads later in this story.


In the McMinn win, BHS junior All-state standout forward Amy Porter had three goals against her former school. Porter transferred to Bearden her sophomore year.

Sophomore Ashley Howarth added a goal and an assist while freshman Samantha Turner contributed a goal.

Against West, Howarth led the way with two goals and an assist. Porter added a goal and two assists while Turner added a goal and an assist.


Against Maryville, Ulrich and Mindy Hopkins led in goals with two each, while Reveiz and Joshlyn Johnson had one apiece. Whitney Newby led in assists with two, while Kaila Beasley and Jordan Hogan added one each.

Reveiz pulled off a hat-trick (three goals) at CAK, with Ulrich adding the other goal. Hopkins, Dresen and Whitney Newby assisted.

Columbia Central fell to FHS 5-0 Friday, led by Ulrich with two goals and Dresen, Beasley and Whitney Newby adding one each. Assists came from Dresen, Ulrich, Newby and Morgan Plum.

Against Briarcrest Saturday morning, Ulrich again led the Lady Ad attack, this time a hat-trick, while helping FHS overcome a 2-0 deficit. Hopkins also scored for Farragut. “We did real well coming back there,” Lindsay said.

Dresen scored Farragut’s lone goal against Collierville, assisted by Johnson.

Ulrich and defender Mary Cathryn Suhocki were Farragut’s Katie Hunter Invitational All-tournament honorees.

Accessing last week’s six games, “I was pleased with ’em, I knew they’d be tired and that we were playing against quality competition,” Lindsay said. “I had ‘’em in a bad situation, and they did as well as I would expect.”

Due to the electrical repairs at FHS, Lindsay said, Farragut’s Sept. 5 home game versus Oak Ridge has been moved to Thursday, Sept. 20.
