‘Historic’ victory
Lady SoccerDawgs blister Farragut 10-2

It was more than just an impressive Bearden girls soccer win against archrival Farragut Thursday night. It was historic.

Five BHS goals within a span of roughly 10 minutes turned a normally tight slugfest of state powers from an already one-sided issue into a blowout for the records.

Bearden (9-1), ranked No. 7 in state before the game, built a 4-0 halftime lead to 9-0 with 28:30 to play, and won 10-2 at FHS’s soggy Bill Clabo Field Sept. 17.

“I told the girls at halftime ... ‘this is your chance to make history ... and a lifetime memory,” BHS head coach Eric Turner said.

Farragut, ranked No. 4 in state before the game, fell to 4-3-1.

In his 12-plus years as head coach of Bearden girls and boys soccer — highlighted by five Class AAA state titles — Turner said, “This is one of the best performances all-time.”

Rebecca Stover led with a hat trick (three goals), while Caroline Gianeselli, Samantha Turner and Ashley Howarth scored two each. Allison Daniels rifled in a free kick from 30 yards out.

“Caroline Gianeselli (three assists) had a great game,” Turner said. “Samantha Turner had a great game once again, and Ashley Howarth. Kirsten Bodker and Jessica Logan did a great job. And Rebecca Stover ... she’s having such an awesome year. Courtney Johnson did a great job in goal for us in the last 15 minutes there.”

Gianeselli said, “We wanted to come out here and show Farragut we’re all about each other and ready to win state.” Stover said, “We knew we had to come out strong.”

FHS scored when Morgan Brandon tapped in a Mary Cathryn Suhocki shot attempt with 27:15 to play, and scored again at 20:35 when Ashley Reveiz headed in a crossing pass from Kiley McCarley.

“I think M-C Suhocki played pretty well,” FHS head coach Dennis Lindsay said.
