TU struck first as Freshman Kaleigh Premo (1G) drives in a goal from an assisted ball off the boot of Freshman Bethany Chamberlain (2A), putting the Lady Night Hawks ahead 1-0. Florida Memorial would answer back at the eight and a half minute mark, knotting the game at 1-1. Thomas would step to the occasion as Junior Mackenzie Dolan (1G) would answer with a goal of her own from an assist by Chamberlain at the nine and a half minute mark, putting TU back in the lead 2-1.

Just four minutes before halftime, Junior Adrianna Johnson (1G) would lengthen TU’s lead to 3-1 as she netted a goal on a free kick at the top of the box. Freshman Linnea Roivas (1G) and Junior Alyssa Denton (1G) would add to FMU’s deficit as they each launch a goal of their own, giving the Lady Night Hawks the substantial 5-1 lead.

“Our girls never stopped playing. They attacked the ball and took opportunities to score when they were given the chance,” said TU Head Women’s Soccer Coach, Julie Orlowski. “The girls have shown tremendous improvement through the weeks, and we look forward to the rest of the season ahead.”

TU will be back in action Sunday, September 14th as they travel to Auburn – Montgomery to lock up at 2pm.

In men’s action, the No. 18 TU Night Hawks (3-0-1) (TSC 0-0) knock off No. 1 MMC RedHawks (2-1) (SSAC 0-0) in a 3-1 upset in week three’s NAIA game of the week.

The RedHawks would draw first blood as they scored the first goal of the game in the 51st minute, taking the lead over TU 1-0.

Freshman Johnathan McGrath (1G) would answer MMC’s goal just 16 seconds later on an assist by Sophomore Antonio Rodriquez, knotting the game at 1-1. The Night Hawks defense would remain solid as they held the #1 team, MMC, to just 1 one goal for the remainder of the match-up. Sophomore Severin Abt (2G) would put Thomas ahead 2-1 as he blasts home a goal from Junior Patrick Ramdial’s (2A) played ball in the 60th minute. Abt and Ramdial would continue their dominance as Abt netted his second goal on the night from another Ramdial assist.

The Night Hawks extend their home field dominance as they collect their 8th straight home victory over ranked opponents. Thomas also lengthens their record to 9-2-1 against the Southern States Conference since 2011 after upsetting #1 Martin Methodist 3-1.

“I was extremely proud of our team tonight. Each time we play we see improvement,” said TU Head Men’s Soccer Coach, Ricky Zambrano. “Defending our home turf and knocking off the #1 team shows that our guys are just as competitive and capable as the next teams, if not more so.”

Thomas looks to extend their home streak of top ranked teams as they face-off with #22 Bethel College Sunday, September 14th at the Wendy’s Soccer Complex at 3:30pm
