Tigers and Trojans battle to a double overtime scoreless draw

SEWANEE, Tenn. (Sept. 28, 2016)  Over the past three seasons, the Sewanee women's soccer team and visiting NCAA Division II program Trevecca have played in a number of close matches. On a chilly Wednesday evening at Puett Field, that trend continued as the Tigers and Trojans battled to a double overtime scoreless draw.

In a match that was close throughout, each team had moments when they dictated the pace of play. Throughout the first half, Sewanee controlled the flow of the contest as a strong backline of Martha Dinwiddie, Elizabeth Eidson, and Kiley Ezzell were able to maintain possession.

After halftime, Trevecca pushed forward and forced Sewanee to play at a quicker pace. Even with both styles on display, neither team could break through.

Overall, Sewanee led in shots, 14-8. The Tigers also held a 6-2 advantage in corner kicks.

Individually, Tyler Edell led the attack for Sewanee with four shots while Savannah Williams added two attempts.

Sewanee returns to action with a 4:30 p.m. (EST) match at Oglethorpe, Saturday.
