Jordan Fusco gave Tennessee a 1-0 lead with a goal in the 33rd minute. Maria Nelson and Abbey Burdette were each credited with an assist on the game’s first marker.

Brooke Wilson extended the Lady Vols’ advantage to 2-0 in the 39th minute. Hannah Zaluski recorded an assist on Wilson’s goal.

Tennessee goalkeeper Lindsey Romig recorded two saves against Miami (0-2) en route to earning her second consecutive clean sheet of the season.

The Lady Vols return to action Thursday, playing at Tennessee Tech.

Kickoff against the Golden Eagles is slated for 8 p.m. EDT.
