The Sewanee Women’s Soccer Team won their sixth consecutive game on Friday, defeating rival Rhodes in overtime by a score of 21. Kiley Ezzell (C’18) scored the winning goal in the 96th minute and was assisted by Katie Morrison (C’17). Erin Gill (C’19) also scored 32 minutes into the game, tying the score and setting up an eventual overtime after a scoreless second half. Gill had seven shots in the game, anchoring the offense for the team. In a match that featured a significant weather delay, Sewanee dominated on offense, almost tripling the amount of shots taken (176). In a game that saw many Rhodes saves and many close shots from the Sewanee team, they finally found the back of the net, winning the game and continuing their streak. Sewanee is no stranger to overtime games, as several of their games have gone the distance. The team must have found some solace in being comfortable with the overtime situation. Sewanee’s defense also stayed strong, limiting Rhodes to only one goal and six shots overall. The defense was anchored by goalkeeper Olivia Glascoe (C’16), who had 4 saves overall. Sewanee played an aggressive game, dominating on both offense and defense.

The women’s soccer team has been on fire as of late, which they look to continue as they play Hendrix at noon on Sunday and try to pick up their seventh straight win. If you have not yet checked out the women’s soccer team, you definitely should, as they will provide you with an entertaining game that will surely not disappoint. The Tigers are having a great season, and they hope to ride this momentum for the rest of the season.(All stats and information, unless otherwise noted, was obtained from sewaneetigers.com)
