Danielle TannerBREVARD, N.C. --- Danielle Tanner recorded a hat-trick as the No. 7 Tusculum College women's soccer team blanked host Brevard College 6-0 Saturday afternoon in a non-conference match.

Tanner finished with three goals and an assist as the Pioneers improved to 7-3 on the season.

The Pioneers struck early with a goal by Tanner, putting the shot past BC keeper Sydney Douglas with only 1:28 into the match. Tusculum then added another goal in the 32nd minute with a corner kick by Nicole Ferris that found a wide open Lisa Adriano for the second score of the match.

Tusculum started the second half just like the first as they scored again 32 seconds into the period with a goal by Jere Whitbred.

Tanner added two more goals in the second half, while Ally Mathews also found the back of the net. TC rookie Dagbjort Agnarsdottir assisted on the final two goals of match for the Pioneers.

TC out-shot the Tornados by a 28-5 margin as Douglas finished with nine saves. Tusculum's Tori Hadjopoulos added three saves as she played in just the opening 45 minutes.

The Pioneers are back at home this Wednesday night when they host arch-rival Carson-Newman College at 7 p.m. The match has been declared "Black-Out" Night as Tusculum fans are asked to wear black to Wednesday's match against the Lady Eagles. It will be a rematch of last season's NCAA Division II Southeast Region final which Tusculum defeated C-N 1-0 in a double-overtime thriller.
