Women's Soccer Blows Out Tennessee Temple, 5-0

The Oglethorpe women's soccer team ran all over Tennessee Temple Tuesday evening in Chattanooga, Tenn., defeating them by a 5-0 scoreline. The Petrels outscored the home-standing Crusaders 4-0 in the second half.

Tennessee Temple managed to keep it close in the first half. Oglethorpe did score the goal that gave them the lead, though. Junior defender Lisanne Edelman came forward on a Lady Petrel corner kick and knocked home senior defender Jordan Weaver's delivery for the 1-0 lead.

In the second half, it was a much different story, as goals started coming from everywhere for the Petrels. Senior midfielder Kendall Burke scored on an assist from Edelman, who finished with three points for the game, to give Oglethorpe the 2-0 lead. They expanded it to 3-0 when freshman midfielder Hannah Kuhn bombed one in from 25 yards out off freshman defender Katie Geiger's assist. Junior forward Clara St. Urbain expanded the Oglethorpe lead when she scored off an assist from freshman forward Laura Betancourt. And finally, junior midfielder Lexie Craig finished off the scoring when she scored off an assist from freshman defender Tate Davis.

The Lady Petrels outshot Tennessee Temple 25-7 on the night. They took eight corner kicks to the Crusaders' four.

Both Bailey Evans and Sarah Craig saw action in goal for the Petrels. Evans played the first half and 10 minutes of the second half and recorded three saves. Craig played the majority of the second half and recorded two.

The win improves the Petrels to 5-9 on the season. They will travel to Mount Berry, Ga., to take on Berry on Saturday afternoon in the final SAA contest of the regular season. The game will kick-off at 3 p.m.
