Bucs take on defending Big South regular-season champ Radford in regular season opener

JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. (August 21, 2014) – The ETSU women’s soccer team will begin regular season play Friday, Aug. 22 as the Buccaneers host reigning Big South regular-season champion Radford at 7:00 p.m., inside Summers-Taylor Stadium.

ETSU returns 15 players from last season’s squad that finished 7-9-2, including last year’s leading point scorers, Sarah Zadrazil (St. Gilgen, Austria), Kristi Davis (Edmond, Okla.), and Hannah Short (Bristol, England).

Zadrazil recorded eight goals and eleven assists during the 2013 campaign en route to being named Atlantic Sun Women’s Soccer Player of the Year. Meanwhile, Davis scored seven goals and recorded one assist. Short posted four goals and four assists last season, earning a spot on the All-Atlantic Sun Second Team.

The Bucs welcome seven newcomers to the team this season: Emily Panocchia (New Tazewell, Tenn.), Alba Llaras (Molerussa, Spain), Garazi Murua (Getxo, Spain), Jil White (Franklin, Tenn.), Paola Roversi (Rieti, Italy), Kendall Manning (Franklin, Tenn.), and Megan Horner (Talbott, Tenn.).

RADFORD HIGHLANDERS – Radford, Va. – Big South Conference

Last season’s 15-3-2 campaign marked Radford’s third consecutive season of 14 or more victories. The Highlanders won their second straight regular season title in 2013, but lost to Liberty in the Big South title game.

This year’s Radford team will feature a drastically different look as the Highlanders graduated five of their top six point-scorers, including Melanie Priestley (7G, 3A) and Sydney Golden (6G, 4A). Three-time Big South Defensive Player of the Year Che’ Brown also graduated, leaving a void at goal.

Radford returns four starters from last year’s squad. The Highlanders are welcoming nine newcomers to the fold this season.

FAMILIAR FOES

ETSU is one of just six teams to defeat Radford over the past two seasons. The Bucs and Highlanders last met Aug. 26, 2012 in Johnson City, with the Bucs winning, 1-0.

Last season, the two teams faced off in exhibition play, with ETSU winning, 3-2, in Radford.
