Bulldog Soccer Closes 2010 Road Slate Sunday at Kentucky
The Dawgs battled valiantly against Vanderbilt Thursday night at the MSU Soccer Field, but in the end, State fell to 7-11 overall and 0-9 in the SEC as two first-half goals by the Commodores proved enough.
Mississippi State makes the trek to the Bluegrass State seeking a second-straight win against the Wildcats. Second-half goals by Lauren Morgan and Kat Walsh propelled the Bulldogs to a 2-0 win in last season’s home finale.
Freshman Elisabeth Sullivan, the 29th-ranked freshman in the nation by TopDrawerSoccer.com, has been the Bulldogs’ offensive spark this season. The Memphis, Tenn., native leads the team with 14 points, five goals and four assists. Her points and goals totals are tied for seventh-most by a Mississippi State freshman.
Sophomore Rachel Wannek and junior Kim Pettit have netted four goals each, while sophomore Madison McKee has beaten the keeper three times.
Redshirt sophomore Skylar Rosson stopped three Vanderbilt shots Thursday night to move past Krystal Werges (2002) for the ninth-most saves in a season (102).
Like Mississippi State, Kentucky (8-7-2, 2-5-2 SEC) has one of the leagues top rookie scorers in Caitlin Landis. Landis leads the Wildcats with six goals and one assist (13 points). Junior Kelsey Hunyadi has also been a potent scoring option with six goals.
Goalkeeper Sydney Hiance leads the UK defense with 84 saves and a 1.15 goals against average.
