Tech soccer blanked by Morehead State

MOREHEAD, Ky. - The Tennessee Tech soccer team took the road for the first time in Ohio Valley Conference play, and fell to Morehead State 4-0 Sunday.

Freshman Lauren Schaedig made her second straight start in goal for the Golden Eagles (2-10-1, 1-1-1), and made six saves, but it was Morehead State (5-6-1, 2-0-1) freshman Jillian Birchmeier who stole the show. Birchmeier scored all four Morehead State goals, three coming in the second half.

Tech trailed 1-0 at halftime, but Birchmeier netted three second half goals, sealing the 4-0 victory. The loss was Tech's first in OVC play. It was Morehead State goalkeeper Samantha Yocke who posted the shutout.

The Golden Eagles play at Austin Peay on Oct. 10 before returning to Cookeville to host Eastern Illinois on Oct. 17. Admission to games at Tech Soccer Field is free.
