TROY, Ala. - Holly Grogan scored two goals and assisted another to fuel a Middle Tennessee offensive uprising and keyed a 4-0 win at Troy Sunday.

Grogan continued to add to her career points and goals record while closing in on the all-time assists mark, as well, as Middle Tennessee evened its record at 5-5-2 overall and 2-2 in the Sun Belt Conference race.

Kaley Forrest and Vanessa Mueggler also scored goals in the win and Kathrine Andresen added an assist.

The four goals were the second-most for the Blue Raiders this season and they scored all of them prior to halftime and let the defense made them stand.

"Holly had a very good match and it was a good team win for us," Middle Tennessee coach Aston Rhoden said. "It was good to see our players rebound from a tough loss Friday and come back with a strong frame of mind and put together a complete match against a good Troy team."

Freshman keeper Kela Casiple was in goal for her third shutout of the season but it was not a very busy day for the Blue Raider stopper as the Blue Raider defense allowed Troy just one shot and it came in the first half.

Grogan scored what would prove to be the game winner in the third minute when she scored an unassisted goal. Grogan's second goal in the eighth minute came on an assist from Andresen and increased the lead to 2-0. Grogan then assisted Forrest for a goal in the 13th minute and Mueggler capped the scoring in the 40th minute.

The multi-goal performance for Grogan gives her 37 career goals and 98 career points. She has 24 career assists and her helper in Sunday's win moved her into second on the career list in that category.
