JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. (September 5, 2000)-- Belmont used two goals from senior Tara Miller to down East Tennessee State, 2-0, in women’s soccer action at the Liberty Bell Soccer Complex in Johnson City, Tenn.

The game-winning goal came at 21:29 as Miller blasted a low line drive from teammate Erica Rudy past ETSU freshman goalkeeper Heather Sanden. Miller added her second goal of the match at 72:20 to solidify the win.

ETSU (1-2) had its chances in the second half as Louisa Sawyer ripped a shot high and over the crossbar after the Belmont (1-3) net minder was tied up by ETSU attackers. Sawyer also had another chance halfway through the second half but was corralled by two Belmont defenders deep in the box.
