The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga women’s soccer team opens Southern Conference action Friday night at East Tennessee State and then Sunday at Western Carolina.
Friday’s game will kick off at 7 p.m. at the Summers-Taylor Stadium. There will be live scoring for the match but no streaming video. Sunday’s match at Western Carolina begins at 2 p.m. at the Catamount Athletic Complex. The game will air live on the SoCon Digital Network and live scoring links will be available at GoMocs.
Recaps and stats will be available at GoMocs.com, the official website of Chattanooga Athletics.
The Mocs fell 2-0 to #19 Alabama in Tuscaloosa on two early goals by the Tide. The Mocs’ defense stepped up the remainder of the way, not allowing another score while its offense created many chances but could not capitalize. Of the Mocs five shots, three were on goal. The Tide got off 24 shots with just seven on goal. Melia Correa made five saves in the match.
After winning its season opener against Austin Peay, the Mocs have had to dig deep for their second win. It came on the road at Alabama A&M. Along with the pair of wins, the Mocs have two ties.
Chattanooga has seven goals on the season on 78 shots for a 0.78 goals per game percentage. The Mocs have 42 shots on goal for a .538 shots on goal percentage and average 8.7 shots per game. UTC is 1-for-1 on penalty kicks while opponents have just one of 2. The Mocs have allowed 16 goals (1.78/game) on 163 shots.
Jordan Mueller leads the team with eight points, making three goals and assisting on two game winners. Catherine Meyer has two goals, both game winners, after sitting out her freshman season with a knee injury last year. Freshman Chloe Arnold is 1-of-1 on penalty kicks and second on the team with two goals.
Sophomore keeper Melia Correa has started six games for Chattanooga. She has 41 saves in 580 minutes in goal for a .774 saves percentage. She has allowed 12 goals for a 1.86 goals against average.

Chattanooga is 6-4-2 all-time against ETSU but just 2-3 on the road. In the last road contest, UTC won 3-1 and last year’s match at Finley Stadium ended in a 2-2 tie.
