The Tide got off 24 shots with just seven on goal. Melia Correa made five saves in the match.

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.
