Ocotber 3rd, 2009 Tournament Wrap-up
Traffic was light as the Vols headed to Greensboro, NC Friday night. After a short nights rest, UT began the day with a match against newcomer Clemson Tigers. The match was was back and forth in the first half, but UT pulled away early in the second half to win 9-4. Match two found the Vols playing the Virginia Tech Hokies. The match was tied in the opening minutes, but UT was able to turn a 2 point lead at halftime into a 5 point lead at the end of regulation to defeat the Hokies 9-4.
The final match of the day pitted the Vols against Liberty University. This proved to be the most contested match of the day for either team. UT took a one point lead after a heated first half. The second half found Liberty up two points with only 4 minutes left in the match. The Vols were able to engineer a comeback to tie the Flames at the end of regulation. In the sudden death overtime three Vols were eliminated early, but a major penalty called on Liberty gave the Vols the final point to win the match 7-6.
