NASHVILLE – Three different Christian Brothers (5-1-1) players scored in the second half to lift the Lady Bucs to a 3-0 shut-out win over Trevecca Nazarene (3-4) Wednesday afternoon in a non-conference women's soccer match at the TNU Soccer Complex.

Aubrey Black had Trevecca's lone shot on-goal in the fourth minute but the shot rolled right into the arms of CBU's Robyn Wade.
Christian Brothers had an 11-1 advantage in shots in the first half but Trojans keeper Allison Ashley saved its two attempts on goal.
The Lady Bucs broke the scoreless tie in the 65th minute as Mariana Tonelli scored on a pass from Camilla Rodgrigues.
CBU extended its lead to 2-0 in the 84th minute as Rodrigues took a deflected cross from Emily Smith and put it into the back of the net.
Smith would tally the Lady Bucs' final goal in the 88th minute.
Christian Brothers out-shot Trevecca 20-2 and had a 7-0 advantage in corner kicks.
Black tallied Trevecca's only shots of the match while Ashley recorded three saves in the loss.
