BHS girls edge Farragut
One goal does it for Lady SoccerDawgs; FHS beats Lady Rebs

Following Farragut’s 3-0 win against No. 5 seed Maryville in opening round District 4-AAA Girls Soccer Tournament action, Ashley Reveiz was confident about a second showdown against No. 2 Class AAA state-ranked and archrival Bearden.

Reveiz, FHS All-state senior forward/defender, said she and her Lady Admirals “heard stuff to get us fired up” about the Oct. 19 do-or-die 4-AAA semifinal at BHS’s Bruce Allender Field.

But that “stuff” didn’t resonate enough to put the No. 8 state-ranked Lady Admirals over the top.

Farragut, No. 4 tourney seed, lost to the Lady SoccerDawgs, 1-0, ending FHS’s season 13-3-4. (No further Farragut-BHS game details available due to deadline)

Bearden (17-1-3) will host the District 4-AAA title game against the Knoxville Catholic-West winner beginning at 7 p.m. tonight, Thursday, Oct. 21.

The Lady SoccerDawgs began tourney play destroying Heritage 8-0 in the quarterfinals Saturday, Oct. 16.

Hosting Maryville at Farragut Intermediate School Field Saturday, Oct. 16, the Lady Admirals cruised.

Farragut cashed in three times with crisp execution while getting a superb performance from its inexperience goalkeeper.

The Lady Ads took a 1-0 lead after Rachael Clark’s high-arcing shot was too high to handle cleanly for Maryville’s goalkeeper.

With the ball loose in front of the net, Katie Cloud tapped in the goal, with a quick, nifty move to her right, with 33:59 left in the half.

“Rachael got it up there to where it was an almost impossible thing for the keeper, and Katie was crashing the goal like she’s supposed to,” Lindsay said. “When it came loose she pushed it in.”

Casey Shanklin’s perfectly placed corner kick found the hard-charging Bivens, whose header made it 2-0 at the 20:54 mark of the first half.

Bivens called Shanklin’s corner “the best corner we’ve had all year, it was perfect.”

Lindsay said Shanklin’s corner “was right on the money. Of course, it was no good if Bivens didn’t put it in.

“Both of them did great on that.”

Reveiz added the third goal with 33:46 left in the second half, firing a laser beam free kick from 25 yards out, 45-degree angle, that sailed between the goalkeeper’s hands and the crossbar.

“That ball was smoked, that was a hard-hit ball,” Lindsay said.

Lindsay said sophomore goalkeeper Katy Hill “did a good job. She did everything you ask of a keeper, she didn’t let anything go. She had to make some good saves. Stopped a pk.”

FHS girls playing, or dressing out for, their final games Tuesday were Reveiz, Shanklin, Amalia Beltran, Rebecca Perkins and Alli Randall.
