Lady Ads hand KCHS 1st soccer defeat

Ashley Reveiz was wide open for the game’s opening goal, as Farragut set the tone early against Knoxville Catholic in a Westside girls soccer showdown Wednesday, Sept. 2.

Reveiz’s open look, converted less than five minutes into the game from about eight yards out, was the first of four unanswered as the Lady Admirals went on to clip the Lady Irish 4-1 at KCHS.

“It always helps when you score first, but it seems like we score and then we want to sit on a lead for a while,” said FHS head coach Dennis Lindsay, whose team improved to 4-1 overall entering the week.

John Bongers, KCHS head coach whose team lost its first game (3-1-1), said “it’s tough to recover when you’re down 1-0 that early against a team like Farragut, they don’t give up many goals.”

Reveiz, a junior forward, provided the assist for FHS’s second goal. Her shot from about 22 yards out deflected off a Lady Admirals teammate in the box and found the back of the net. It was 2-0 with under 10 minutes left in the half.

Lindsay said of Reveiz, “Her upside is unreal, a great athlete.”

Morgan Brandon’s 20-yard shot from in front made it 3-0 with around 25 minutes to play. “Today we went out and we were hustling the whole time, and we talked a lot more,” the FHS senior forward said.

Lindsay labeled Brandon and Reveiz his “one-two punch,” adding, “I expect quite a few goals from Brandon this year.”

Casey Shanklin, a junior midfielder, scored Farragut’s final goal midway into the second half.

Shanklin, Lauren Ward and Reveiz provided assists, as FHS led in shots-on-goal 15-6.

Meanwhile, Lady Ads sweeper Mary Cathryn Suhocki also won praise from the FHS skipper for her defense. “M-C Suhocki played great back there,” Lindsay said. “All of them played pretty well.”

Suhocki said, “We haven’t hit our peak yet, but we’re playing well together and we all get alonggreat.”

Catholic averted a shutout thanks to Reece McKenzie’s goal with roughly 10 minutes to play.

“Reece played real well for us, she showed her speed and her skills in the end,” Bongers said about his sophomore forward. “Kathryn Culhane [junior forward] played well.”
