LEXINGTON, Va. (Aug. 7, 2012) – Newcomer Megan Wynne (St. Albans, England) scored in the final minutes of play to shoot the ETSU women’s soccer team past VMI, 1-0, on Tuesday night in the Lady Bucs’ first exhibition of the 2012 season.

Played at regulation time through two 45-minute halves, ETSU fired 21 shots in the direction of VMI keepers to force the Keydets into making nine saves. In the dying moments of the game, junior Samantha Kron (Paradise Valley, Ariz.) found Wynne on the far side of the net with a corner, which the freshman buried past Mackenzie Harrmann for the win.

Freshmen ETSU keepers Sierra Campbell (Thompson’s Station, Tenn.) and Kara Krejenta (Crodova, Tenn.) combined for the shutout, with Campbell making the lone save off four VMI shots.

“Overall I was very happy with today’s game,” commented second year head coach Adam Sayers. “I think it certainly served its purpose and I thought we did very well defensively from a team standpoint. We were able to experiment some with personnel, and overall we’re happy with the outcome.”

Wynne led the game with five shots, while Emilee Engelhaupt’s (Charlotte, N.C.) two shots and defensive midfield play earned kudos from Sayers.

“Individually, I thought Megan Wynne and Emilee Engelhaupt were both excellent in what was a physical encounter,” added Sayers. “Engelhaupt began in a deep-lying midfield role, and broke forward with the ball on many occasions to create chances for us. We moved her to a more advanced position later on, where she was also influential. Wynne was a constant threat to the opposition, and in the end she got the goal her performance deserved.”

ETSU takes to Summers-Taylor Stadium for the first time in the preseason on Sunday, when it welcomes Appalachian State for its last of two exhibition games.

“We have a lot of positives to take from this and I’m looking forward to getting back on the training field to continue to prepare for the season.”
