Tennessee-Martin wins OVC soccer tournament

Monday, November 5, 2012

The Tennessee-Martin women's soccer team repeated as Ohio Valley Conference tournament champion Sunday with a 2-0 win over Austin Peay.

Top-seeded UTM, the tournament host, earned the OVC's automatic bid to the NCAA tournament.

The Skyhawks scored both goals Sunday in the game's final 20 minutes to knock off second-seeded Austin Peay.

Southeast Missouri State, which lost to UTM 1-0 in Friday's semifinals, had two all-tournament selections in sophomore midfielder Torey Byrd and freshman defender Amy Harrington.

Byrd scored the lone goal in Southeast's 1-0 win over Belmont in Thursday's first round. Harrington played all 180 minutes on defense, helping Southeast allow only one goal in two games.

UTM goalkeeper Mariah Klenke was the tournament MVP.
