Lady SoccerDawgs roll into FHS red hot

Bearden’s Lady SoccerDawgs, ranked No. 5 in the latest Class AAA state poll (10-2 record), continued to roll last week leading to tonight’s District 4-AAA showdown against No. 6 Farragut at FHS’s Bill Clabo Field.

Samantha Turner scored three goals and Jenni Gordon provided three assists in leading BHS to a 10-0 whipping of Sevier County Thursday, Sept. 20, at BHS’s Bruce Allender Field. Anna Gray and Ashley Howarth had two goals each, and Carrie Dance recorded her first goal of the year.

Caroline Gianeselli and Amy Porter also scored.

Right before the half, Gianeselli’s pinpoint pass from midfield found Porter, an All-State junior forward, on the flank. Though Porter’s shot and hit the post — Gianeselli followed the rebound and scored.

Kate Beil play at sweeper was praised, and Sara Rochester appeared to be back at near full speed following injury.

Beth Aaser, having just recovered from an ankle injury, made her debut by leading several attacks from her center-midfield position. Goalkeeper Sarah Canter pitched another shutout.

Bearden has now outscored its opponents by a 54-10 margin.

Against LCHS, the Lady Soccer-Dawgs scored four goals in the first 14 minutes, and Porter had her third hat trick of the season, as the No. 5 Bulldogs won easily 7-0 at BHS Sept. 19. Howarth added two goals, Lindsay Pompilio had a unassisted mark and Jenni Gordon fired one in from way out to complete the scoring.

Turner continued her corner-kick success with two assists, and Caroline Lutz and Pompilio also assisted on scores.

Opening kick for the Thursday, Sept. 27, battle with Farragut begins at 7:30 p.m..

Though defending Class AAA state champ, Bearden is looking to snap a three game losing streak versus its archrivals.

The Lady Admirals (12-2 record), won the regular season District 4-AAA title, the district tourney crown and the Region 2-AAA championship en route to Chattanooga.

But the Lady SoccerDawgs had the final laugh after beating Collierville for the state crown last November, and hope to break the Navy Blue grip Thursday.
