Senior Night for FHS girls soccer ends with 6-0 win versus HVA
No. 3 Lady SoccerDawgs roll past McMinn

Farragut girls soccer Senior Night was a resounding night of domination against neighborhood rival Hardin Valley Academy.

Two goals each from Amalia Beltran and Skylar Brewer led the state's No. 11 state-ranked Lady Admirals to a 6-0 shutout of HVA Thursday evening, Oct. 8, on FHS's Bill Clabo Field.

Two of FHS's four seniors contributed on the stat sheet: Morgan Brandon scored a goal while Mary Cathryn Suhocki added one assist.

Other seniors honored during halftime ceremonies — introduced with family members while public address biographies on each senior were read — were Lauren Ward and team manager Emma Wishart.

“I’m really sad that it’s ending soon,” Brandon said. “We played really well tonight.”

Meanwhile, No. 3 Bearden kept rolling last week following a 10-0 rout at McMinn County Oct. 8, improving its record to 16-1.

Entering the week 11-4-2, Farragut also got a first-half goal from Kiley McCarley and led 3-0 at the break. Other assists in the game came from Rachael Clark, Ashley Reveiz and Beltran.

Suhocki said the team is pushing hard “to win our titles back,” referring to the upcoming District 4-AAA and Region 2-AAA tourneys.

As for the halftime ceremony, she added, “I was surprised it hit me when everyone came and hugged me. We were crying. It was really emotional.”

As the Lady Hawks fell to 8-6-2 overall entering the week, HVA head coach Becca Wilson said when Farragut scored its first goal, “It just went downhill from there. Some of the girls gave up, you could tell by watching them play. ... They just got frustrated.”

This was a far cry from the teams’ first meeting, in the Lady Tribe Invitational in Kingsport last month, where it was 2-2 with 10 minutes left before FHS won 4-2.

Ward said, “We just knew we had to come out hard because playing them in a tournament a couple of weekends ago we let up after we had the lead, and we knew we couldn’t do that tonight. I’m just proud of the way we played.”

Individually, Wilson praised two HVS freshmen “who really stepped up in my opinion up top, Emily Smith and Ellie Myrick.”

Hardin Valley also is adjusting to the loss of standout sophomore forward Allie Kington, out for the year with an ankle injury.
