COOKEVILLE, Tenn. -- Tech soccer is looking forward to returning to Cookeville, as they capped off their four-match conference stint on the road with an afternoon game against Martin on Sunday. The Skyhawks took the victory, 3-0.

Twelve different UT Martin players peppered freshman goalkeeper Becca Toler with a combined 26 shots in Sunday's contest, paced by Rosaelia Loza who took five and netted two. Both of Loza's goals came in the second half, one in the 54th minute and one in the 81st minute. Abi Sanvee's sole shot of the match caught Toler off the line to start the scoring for the Skyhawks in the 32nd minute.

Toler, who went the distance in net for TTU, earned seven saves to bring her season total to 57 for a .750 shot percentage in 886 minutes played. Sunday's loss brings her career record to 2-6.

Kerri Reid and Kris Cambron led the way for the Golden Eagles, taking two shots apiece to combine for half of Tech's shots on the day. Cambron leads the team in shots this season, having taken 18 thus far. Martin's Lauren McKenzie earned two saves on the day.

The Golden Eagles will play in Cookeville next weekend, taking on Southeast Missouri on Friday at 3:30 p.m. and Eastern Illinois on Sunday, Oct. 17 at 2 p.m.
