Women’s tennis

The University of Miami women’s tennis team concluded its first tournament of the fall season by winning two of five singles matches and two doubles matches at the Gator Fall Classic in Gainesville, Fla., Sunday afternoon.

In a rematch from 2004’s NCAA Singles Championship round of 16, senior Megan Bradley, who is ranked No. 2 in the nation, defeated Florida’s Jennifer Magley, 7-5, 6-3. Bradley earned a 6-2, 7-5 win against Magley in NCAAs.

Sophomore Emily Mowery topped Florida’s Alex Liles 6-3, 4-6, 1-0 (10-8).

The Hurricanes’ duo of Bradley and freshman Juliette Mavroleon overcame FSU’s Roxanne Clarke-Mihaela Moldovan pairing, 8-3, while Junior Melissa Applebaum and freshman Caren Seenauth defeated Lindsay Deason and Tapiwa Marobela from FSU 8-6.

The Hurricanes went 9-6 in singles and earned an even 4-4 record in doubles action.

Miami returns to action Oct. 5-6 when it travels to Los Angeles, Calif., where it will play to qualify for the All-American Championships that will take place Oct. 7-10.

Women’s soccer

The women’s soccer team used a trio of goals in the second period by senior Anik Huffman, junior Lindsey Yach and senior Britney Butcher to down in-state rival Jacksonville, 3-1 Tuesday afternoon in Jacksonville, Fla., claiming its second win in as many matches.

Playing in their third game in six days, the Hurricanes (2-4-0) overpowered the Dolphins (1-5-1), recording 20 shots by 14 different players on the afternoon, including a season-best 10 on goal, while holding JU to just nine shots in the match.

The first period opened as the two schools fought for more than nine minutes before the first shot was taken when the Hurricanes’ Sheuneen Ta missed wide from the right side of the net at the 9:48 mark.

Miami and Jacksonville traded five more shots each throughout the remainder of the half as the first period closed with the match scoreless.

The Hurricanes came out strong in the second period when, following a blocked shot attempt by Yach in the 48th minute, Jyene Mack and Lauren Berardicurti found Huffman, who netted a goal from inside the box at the 50:40 mark to score her first of the season giving Miami a 1-0 lead.

Yach would connect nearly 22 minutes later, adding to the Miami in the 73rd minute with her second goal of the season on a penalty kick.

Miami’s third and final goal followed shortly as Butcher lobbed a shot off the crossbar and right post to score her first goal of the season in the 76th minute.

The Dolphins lone goal of the night came in 79th minute on a penalty kick by Jess Newport past UM keeper Alex Alford.
