Sewanee Women's Soccer Game Versus Rhodes Decided In OT

 

DANVILLE, Ky. (November 6, 2015)  -  The Sewanee women's soccer team played a tight game against Rhodes College in the semi-final round of the SAA Tournament only to come up short after two overtime periods and an overtime shootout.  Rhodes sealed the victory on the 5th and final shootout penalty kick scoring 4 PK's to Sewanee's 3.

The Tigers opened the game strong, scoring a goal in the fifteenth minute of the first half.  Sewanee Junior Katie Morrison scored this opening goal, and the Tigers outshot the Lynx in the first half 10 to 2.

The second half was a different story with the Lynx getting 5 shots on goal and the Tigers only managing 3.  Rhodes tied the game in the sixty-second minute with a goal from Aly Hoyt, and the game remained tied through regulation time.

The game then went to overtime where no goals were scored by either team through two ten-minute overtime periods.  With ten seconds remaining in the second overtime, Sewanee goalkeeper Olivia Glascoe had a tremendous save of a shot by Sydnie Schindler of Rhodes to send the game into a shootout.

Sewanee missed their first and fourth shootout attempts and made their second and third shots.  Rhodes made their first three shots in the shootout and missed the fourth.  After Sewanee made its fifth shootout attempt, the Tigers needed a save of the Lynx's fifth shot to send the game into additional shots.  This was not to be, as Addie Fargason of Rhodes snuck the fifth shot past Glascoe for the winning goal.

The Tigers end the season with an impressive record of 11-3-4 and 6-0-2 in conference play.  The Friday game marked the final collegiate game for Sewanee seniors Olivia Glascoe and Olivia O'Brien.
