KNOXVILLE, TN – UNC Greensboro freshman Jen Bronson scored her first collegiate goal in the second half to give the Spartans the 1-0 victory over Mercer at the Tennessee Lady Vol Classic on Sunday afternoon.
Bronson scored at 73:28 off a rebound for the game’s only goal. She got the feed from fellow freshman Kelly Attayek and took advantage of the empty net, sending the ball in for her first collegiate goal to make it 1-0 in favor of the Spartans.
Overall, the game was controlled by the Spartans who finished with a 21-8 shot advantage, including two missed penalty kicks. Carolin Feierabend recorded six shots and Bronson finished with five. Keeper Katherine Ryan had two saves in her first shutout of the season.
“It’s good to get a win,” stated head coach Eddie Radwanski, “In the second half, we gave a good effort in the heat. We made the game harder than it should’ve been but we fought through it and are looking ahead to Wake Forest on Tuesday.”
UNCG (1-5-0) travels to Winston-Salem on Tuesday to take on nationally ranked Wake Forest. Kickoff set for 7 pm.
