No. 7 Bearden rolls
4-AAA title rematch with FHS anticipated

The No. 1 seeded Bearden Lady Bulldogs cruised in the opening round of the District 4-AAA soccer tourney with an 11-0 win versus No. 8 Heritage at BHS’s Bruce Allender Field Saturday, Oct. 13.

A 4-AAA tourney title game match versus rival Farragut, No. 2 ranked statewide, is anticipated Thursday, Oct. 18, at BHS.

Amy Porter gave Bearden, ranked No. 7 statewide, a 1-0 lead with 38:18 left in the first half. Lindsay Pompilio, Kirsten Bodker, Ashley Howarth and Kate Beil gave BHS a five goal lead at halftime.

Bearden (15-2-1 overall record entering the week) continued to pour on the goals, including those from Caroline Lutz, Beth Aaser, Anna Gray and Carrie Dance. Samantha Turner, Allison Everett and Lauren Nagel had assists.

The Lady Bulldogs closed out the regular season with a 5-1 win against Notre Dame Thursday, Oct. 11, at home.

Caroline Gianeselli led the way with two goals while Howarth, Brenna Mayfield, Porter and Jenni Gordon each had goals. Turner and Gianeselli each had two assists, and Porter had one.

Bearden opened the week with a 7-0 win versus Greeneville Tuesday, Oct. 9, at home. Porter, Howarth and Gianeselli had two goals apiece while Pompilio had one. Turner had three assists while Howarth had two and Porter and Pompilio one each.

“I thought we finished off great,” BHS head coach Eric Turner said. “We had Greeneville who was a sectional [Class AAA team] last year, and Notre Dame, who is ranked No. 1 in the A-AA, and we came out and handled both of those games. And I was really proud of the girls; and that’s really what we need, to be challenged so in the tournament, hopefully, we will be able to hit a stride at the right time.”
