Knoxville, Tenn., Sept. 1, 2013 - The James Madison women's soccer team suffered a 2-0 loss to homestanding Tennessee on Sunday, dropping its overall record to 2-2 on the season.

The Dukes faced a tough test against a Volunteers team that improved to 3-1 and was coming off a 2-1 upset win over No. 17 UCF. Hannah Wilkinson had the game-winner against the Knights and proved to be the difference maker against JMU as well.

Wilkinson scored both goals against the Dukes, putting the Volunteers up 1-0 just over three minutes into the game with a close-range goal on a breakaway. Cheyenne Spade set up the shot, giving Wilkinson a look from five yards out.

The second goal of the game didn't come until the 77th minute, when Wilkinson struck again. Following a long pass from CC Cobb, the junior put a fake on the Dukes' goaltender and found the open net for her third goal of the season.

Sophomore goaltender Ellen Forrest made a career-high 11 saves for the Dukes.  Julie Eckel made two saves to pick up the shutout win.

JMU had nine shots in the game, led by Haley Miller with two. Kelly Abt and Jennie Sroba each had a shot on goal.

The Dukes will return home for two non-conference games this weekend. They are set to host Villanova on Friday and Virginia Tech on Sunday. Both games are scheduled for 7 p.m. and Sunday's match will be on MadiZONE HD SportsNet presented by the JMU Alumni Association.
