GREENEVILLE, Tenn. --- Danielle Tanner and Kelly Barron each recorded a pair of goals as the Tusculum College women’s soccer team defeated visiting Brevard College 5-1 Saturday at Pioneer Field in South Atlantic Conference action. The Pioneers improve to 5-3-1 and 2-0 in league play.
Tusculum unleashed the scoring barrage in the ninth minute when Tanner executed a beautiful solo move, freeing herself from a BC defender and bending a shot past Tornado keeper Sydney Douglas to make the score 1-0. The goal was Tanner's 11th of the season.
Barron was the next Pioneer to cross the scoring threshold. Barron possessed a through ball from Courtney Turner in the 33rd minute and buried a shot into the upper left corner of the goal to push the lead to 2-0.
The final first half goal came from rookie Devan McIntyre the first of the season for the Greeneville product. After teammate and fellow Greeneville native Michelle Meade clanked a shot off the crossbar, McIntyre collected the rebound and calmly drilled a shot into the top third of the goal, sending the teams to the intermission with Tusculum up 3-0.
Barron poured in on in the 58th minute, scoring her second goal of the match after Tanner's shot bounced off the post. The goal was Barron's ninth of the year and made the score 4-0.
Tanner's 58th minute shot might have just missed, but she completed her brace in the 65th minute off another feed from Meade. The goal gave Tanner an even dozen in 2008, and bumped the tally to 5-0.
Brevard's goal came in the 73rd minute from Caitlin Hubbard.
Hubbard's shot was the only one of Brevard's three shots to be on target. Tusculum launched 28 shots, 11 of which were on goal. Douglas made five saves in the first half, and substitute keeper Jennifer Elzey stopped one shot in the second.
Pioneers will travel to rival Carson-Newman on Wednesday for a 7 p.m. match.
