Jarrett lifts Skyhawks Soccer over Belmont

Posted on 25 October 2014 by Allen


Junior standout Rianna Jarrett notched her second hat trick of the season and sixth in school history to lift the University of Tennessee at Martin soccer team to a decisive 4-2 victory at Ohio Valley Conference foe Belmont.
The Skyhawks (11-5-1, 5-2-1 OVC) stretched their unbeaten streak to four straight games, closing out the road portion of the 2014 regular season schedule with the victory over the Bruins. Behind the impressive play of Jarrett, the Skyhawks continue to push for a first round bye in the upcoming OVC Tournament, sitting just two points out of second place.

Leading the league in both points and goals – among several other statistical categories – Jarrett tallied three goals to move her season tally up to 15 goals and 33 points. The hat trick is the second of the season for the junior out of Wexford, Ireland, becoming the second player in school history to tally multiple hat tricks in a career, let alone twice in a single season. Ellie Myrick and Ashlie Watson each tallied an assist on the evening.
Along with the impressive play of Jarrett, the senior pair of Dominika Conc and Amy Maksimowicz notched their own respective spot in school history by tying the all-time record for appearances with Hannah McGowen at career 83 games played.

Goalkeeper Mariah Klenke notched career victory No. 42. Klenke has played every minute this season, tallying seven saves on the evening while allowing a pair of goals.

Belmont (5-7-4, 2-4-2 OVC) received goals by Taylor Smith and Allie Hicks while Belicia Mendiola tallied an assist. The Bruins had two goalkeepers split time in goal with Megan Byrd earning the start, tallying one save while allowing a pair of goals. Lindsey Espe played the entire second half, allowing two goals and notching a save.
The game saw its first goal in the 20th minute. With the match still scoreless, a tough bounce off a Bruin defender tallied the first goal for the Skyhawks, giving them the early advantage. The Skyhawks wouldn’t be done in the first half as Jarrett would score her first goal of three just five minutes later off an assist from Watson. Watson would set up Jarrett nicely with a quick touch as the junior would dribble into the box and converted on a 1v1 with the keeper to push the margin out to 2-0.

The Skyhawks would find their third unanswered goal in the game’s 56th minute. Myrick – a sophomore forward – would find Jarrett as the headed pass flew towards the far post before eventually bouncing in to give UTM the 3-0 lead.

Down but not out, the Bruins would make a valiant effort at a late comeback. Hicks would notch her second goal of the season as a high bouncing ball pushed into the back of the net in the 79th minute. The Bruins would notch another shot attempt just minutes later before Mendiola would find Smith for the team’s second unanswered goal and trimming the margin to 3-2 with just over seven minutes to play.

With the margin at its closest since the game’s 25th minute, Jarrett would cap off the historic night with her third goal in the 84th minute. Jarrett would convert the hat trick by pulling Espe out of the net and tallying the strike to end the night’s scoring.

UT Martin will return to action on Sunday, Oct. 26 against Austin Peay. Prior to the 2 p.m. start at Skyhawk Field, the team will honor its eight seniors with Senior Day festivities.

Skyhawks fall to Oklahoma State 1-0

Posted on 16 September 2014 by Allen


The University of Tennessee at Martin women’s soccer team could not overcome a second half goal in its attempt to upset Big 12 Conference foe Oklahoma State on the road Sunday afternoon, falling to the Cowgirls 1-0.

The Skyhawks (4-3) dropped their third consecutive game by a combined three goals while being held scoreless through the first three games of the current six game road trip. Forwards Rianna Jarrett, Ellie Myrick and Ashlie Watson each tallied two shot attempts on the day, but the game’s lone shot on goal came from senior Alyssa Curtis.
Senior goalkeeper Mariah Klenke got the start between the posts, tallying eight saves in 90 minutes of play. Klenke allowed one goal on 14 shot attempts by the Cowgirls.

Oklahoma State (2-6) was paced by the play of Madison Mercado who scored the game’s winning goal in the 66th minute. Courtney Dike led the team with six shot attempts on the day, including four attempts on goal. Goalkeeper Medina Rosa tallied one save in 90 minutes of play.

The Cowgirls came out as the aggressors, winning the shot battle 14-7 on the afternoon while also tallying 12 corner kicks. OSU fired its first shot attempt just 43 seconds into the match, but Klenke would tally her first of five first half saves.

OSU would fire three shot attempts in the final five minutes of the first half, but Klenke would once again come up strong between the posts, tallying three saves to preserve the scoreless tie going into the halftime break.
The scoreless match would not last at the dismay of the Skyhawks. Allie Stephenson would find Mercado with a cross into the box before the striker tapped the ball into the goal in the 66th minute. The goal was Mercado’s second of the season.

The Skyhawks would nearly find the much needed equalizer in the 77th minute off of Watson, but her attempt would hit off the post before a Myrick rebound attempt sailed high to extinguish the team’s final scoring opportunity.
UT Martin will look to reverse the tide when they return to action on Friday, Sept. 19 when they travel to Kennesaw State at 6 p.m.
