NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Vanderbilt soccer tallied its first shutout of the season Sunday night by defeating Belmont 2-0 at the Vanderbilt Soccer Complex.
The Commodores commanded the game, marking possession in 76 percent of the game. The Dores outshot Belmont 20-2 which is the least number of shots that Vanderbilt has allowed so far this season.
Junior Rachel Deresky scored her first goal of the season (eighth career) after a Vanderbilt corner kick that was right to freshman Ella Eggleston at the midway point of the first half. Eggleston headed the ball to Deresky who found the back of the net from inside the box.
Eggleston tallied her second goal of the season on a second-chance ball. Caroline Betts found Eggleston inside the keeper box but her first attempt was blocked by Belmont’s keeper Sarah Boyle. Eggleston then got the rebound and tapped in the ball for Vandy’s second score of the half and the night.
Tonight’s win brings Vanderbilt’s season total to 2-0-2.
Vanderbilt returns to the Vanderbilt Soccer Complex on Thursday at 7 p.m. as they host Kansas State on SECN+.
