The first 10 minutes opened with each team getting their legs and feel for the field, but it was clear that Vanderbilt was pressing it's advantage. A foul by Tennessee Tech at the 12:15 mark help set up Vandy's first goal as play was brought into the Tech end, Laura Hershe now controlled the ball on the right side of the box and made a pretty cross to Michelle Bruntlett on the left side and Michelle tallied the first score placing the ball squarely in the back of the net.
The rest of the first half saw Vandy dominate but kept off the scoreboard again by Carly King. Over the next 30 minutes, the Commodores had 5 corner kicks and 9 additional shots on net. Tennessee Tech had no shots on net in the first half.
The second half started like the first with Vandy pressing the issue, but not putting another ball in the net. Finally, at the 65:33 mark, Laura Hershenow broke down the middle of the field on a break away and beat king to the left side giving Vanderbilt a 2-0 cushion. Tech was never able to mount any sustained attach as the Commodore midfielders controlled nearly every loose ball and thwarted any offensive drive the Eagles tried to muster.
Vandy improved its record to 3-2-2 while Tennessee Tech dropped to 3-4. Vandy next plays Sunday at 4 p.m. against Western Kentucky
