The Motlow Bucks are undefeated in Tennessee Community College Athletic Association (TCCAA) conference play. So are the Columbia State Chargers. The two teams will square off for sole possession of first place in the conference on Thursday, Sept. 22, at 7 p.m. at Columbia State.
The Bucks (5-2, 2-0) continued their shutout streak by beating Dyersburg State 9-0 last Thursday. Motlow has not allowed a goal in its previous four games, shutting out the opposition 22-0.
Columbia State (5-3-1, 2-0) is fresh off a loss to Itawamba Community College 2-1 on Sunday. Prior to that the Chargers had won four straight, including three shutouts.
Kristen Gasaway and Ellie Kirk had two goals each in the win over Dyersburg. Alysa Benton, Cheyenne Watson, Katherine Clark, Emily Fisher, and Madisen Hodges also scored a goal apiece. Assisting on goals were Alexis McMath, Grace Murray, Kirk (2), Gasaway (2), and Hodges.
Motlow goalkeepers Lucy Riddle, Molley McElhiney, and Leigha Resendiz combined to shut out Dyersburg State.
