Lady Bears edged 3-2 by Smyrna

From staff reports • Dec 17, 2015 at 5:17 PM

Smyrna edged Mt. Juliet 3-2 in non-district soccer action Tuesday night.

The Lady Bulldogs led 2-1 at halftime in scoring in the 17th and 32nd minutes.

Julia Duggan answered for Mt. Juliet in the 27th minute off an assist from Marileigh Mabry.

Nataya Wade pulled Mt. Juliet into a 2-2 tie in the third minute of the second half off a Riley Windling assist.

Smyrna scored the winner in the 30th minute.

Mt. Juliet fell to 1-3 for the season despite outshooting Smyrna 22-9 as Sarah Carter collected six saves for the Lady Bears.

"Our defense let us down on the three goals Smyrna scored," Mt. Juliet coach Ryan Hill said. "We made mental mistakes close to the goal and it cost us."

Mt. Juliet's match last Thursday against Macon County was called off due to a family emergency involving the Lady Tigers' coach. It will probably not be rescheduled.

The Lady Bears will next play host to District 9-AAA rival Portland at 6 p.m. Thursday.
