Vols battle but are overtaken by mistakes and fast paced UK attack

Tennessee battled from behind for the entire contest but couldn't overcome mistakes and a talented Kentucky Wildcats team.  

The Volunteers feel behind as far as 3 tries in the first half but battled back to cut the margin to 3 in the second half but just couldn't finish attacks with points in the final 20 minutes.  

The UT Reserves were outmanned by an experienced Wildcat team that recycled several from the first game.  The young Vols fought hard but couldn't keep pace as UK scored three unanswered tries in the second half. 

Thanks to all those that came out on a nice Saturday afternoon to cheer on the Vols. Special thanks to  Julie and Michael Powers for hosting the after match meal for the teams.  

The Vols now turn their attention to Fall Break and a trip to Memphis to square off with 3 teams in 2 days.
