UNG wins by 10 goals in dominant senior night performance

The University of North Georgia’s women’s soccer team piled on the second most shots in a game in school history, firing 46 shots against Georgia Southwestern University (GSW) Wednesday at the UNG Soccer Complex in Dahlonega.

Of those 46 shots, 10 found their way to the back net as the Nighthawks went on to defeat the Canes 10-0. North Georgia also kept the canes from attempting a single shot the whole game.

North Georgia’s all-time record for shots in a game is 49. The Nighthawks set the record in 2014 against GSW as well.

The goal scoring started when Renee VanHorn scored in the seventh minute off an assist from Rosie Embley. Brynn Finneran wasted no time adding another score for the Nighthawks when she netted a goal in the eighth minute.

McKenzie Anderson, a senior transfer from Armstrong State, added two goals in North Georgia’s senior night win. Anderson was pleased with her team’s performance.

“It’s been a good experience, it was a great experience to score two goals,” Anderson said. “We made it a mission this week to score as many goals as we could. We knew this game was a game where we could do that.”

North Georgia Head coach Chris Adams was proud of his seniors and his team.

“Just a great team performance,” Adams said. “[With it] being senior night we wanted to make sure we sent our seniors out in style.”

Jessi Vaverka, Michelle Allen, Asa Thorsen, Logan Martin, MacKenzie Brennan and Logan Martin all contributed goals in the match for the Nighthawks.
