Appalachian State University women’s soccer exploded for five goals on Friday evening in a 5-0 rout of Chattangooa from Appalachian Soccer Stadium. The Mountaineers (6-4-2, 3-0-2) remain unbeaten in Southern Conference play with five games played. App State was able to get the scoring started in the 12th minute
of the game when Merlin Beckwith sent a ball into the box off of a free kick that was flicked on by Jane Cline to the feet of Julia Holz. From there, Holz was able to gather and strike first for her sixth goal of the season.
Four minutes later, it was Beckwith again who found Sam Neill this time coming in from the top of the box to fire a rocket past Taylor Mangrum to give the Apps a 2-0 lead early on.
The Mountaineers would take the 2-0 advantage into the locker room at halftime holding an eight to six in shots.
One minute into the second half App State would add to their lead. A great cross from Holz found Sam Childress who was able to connect on her seventh goal of the season and extend the lead to 3-0.
Four minutes after the third goal Beckwith would pick up her third assist of the night. A beauty of a cross was sent into the box and Cline was able to put her head on it for her fourth goal of the season. The goal gave Appalachian a 4-0 advantage.
In the 85th minute the Mountaineers would score their fifth and final goal of the game. Jenni Loveless took a corner kick and Jamie Lockie got her foot on it for a 5-0 lead for the Mountaineers.
Megan Roberson (5-3-2) received the start for the Mountaineers and made two saves in the first half. Amy Kolowsky played in the second half making one save. As a team, the Mountaineers made two key team saves to prevent Chattanooga goals.
Appalachian outshot Chattanooga 18 to eight on the night with 13 of those shots being on target.
The Mountaineers return to action on Sunday when they host Samford. Kick off is set for 2 p.m. from Appalachian Soccer Stadium.
