Sewanee takes SAA lead after rolling past BSC for seventh straight win

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (Oct. 18, 2015) – The Sewanee women's soccer team now sits in first place in the Southern Athletic Association (SAA) standings as the Tigers rolled past Birmingham-Southern, 3-0, Sunday, at Goldfarb Field.

The Tigers are now 9-3-2 overall and 5-0-1 in SAA action. Sewanee leads Centre by a half game in the SAA standings. The Tigers have won seven straight matches and have not lost since September 15.

Sewanee got on the board first, as Katie Morrison netted a goal in the eighth minute off a pass from Dayla LaRocque.

The Tigers then added to their advantage with a pair of goals in the second half. Tyler Edell scored right after halftime as Nikki Johnston found her in front of the net. Sewanee closed out its scoring two minutes later as Morrison netted her second goal from Callie Ruf.

With two matches left in the regular season, Sewanee will look to keep its winning streak alive with a key 5:00 p.m., SAA match against Berry. That home match will be played Friday night at Puett Field.
