Lauren Tanner and Emma Sonnett scored for the Bulldogs and Marion Crowder registered an assist.
“Great to end the spring with a win,” head coach Billy Lesesne said following the match. “It takes time to develop some of the passing rhythms. I think in the first 10 minutes we struggled to get possession of the ball and organize our offensive shape but once we did you could see the pieces coming together. It’s good to end with a couple of goals and have a few other chances as well. We’ve seen continued improvement through the spring and it’s something we can continue to build on for the fall so it’s exciting from that perspective.”[su_spacer size=”40″]
Tanner’s goal came with 20 minutes left in the first half. Crowder threaded a beautiful pass into the middle of the box to Tanner who came streaking across and finished the play off to put the Bulldogs up 1-0.[su_spacer size=”40″] Sonnett increased the lead for the Bulldogs in the second half at the 17-minute mark, burying a goal off a deflection in front of the keeper. The Bulldogs sent a corner kick into the box that bounced around before it settled right at Sonnett’s feet.
The Bulldogs finishes the 2015 Spring Schedule with a record of 2-3-1, with wins over College of Charleston and ETSU. Earlier this spring, Lesesne announced the first signing class of his tenure at Georgia, adding five new players to the team. The incoming class will add to an already strong returning group of players that includes five rising seniors, 12 rising juniors and 16 rising sophomores. The Bulldogs will look to build upon a strong 2014 campaign, in which they finished with a 10-8-2 record and an appearance in the NCAA Tournament.
