On Tuesday night, the Sewanee women’s soccer team defeated Dalton State 2-1 in their last non-conference matchup of the season.

In the twelfth minute, Dalton State goalkeeper Mattie Dollar blocked an attempted pass, but, fortunately for the Tigers, the ball bounced right to Addie Roemershauser (’23) who then scored.

It was the New Orleans native’s eighth goal of the season—good enough for third most in the Southern Athletic Association. 

The remainder of the first half was scoreless, giving Sewanee a 1-0 lead going into the locker room.

A little assurance came in the sixtieth minute when, after a free kick, Isabel Washko (C’22) zoomed past both Dollar and another Roadrunner defender to score the Tigers’ second goal of the game.

17 minutes later, things got interesting again when Dalton State’s Kellye Snyder made it a one-goal game.

The Tiger defense needed to step up, and that’s exactly what they did. They held the Roadrunners scoreless for the final 13 minutes and walked off of Puett Field victorious.

Abigail Frazier (C’22) had two saves while fellow goalkeeper Hanna Judycki (C’22) pitched in three of her own.

Next up for the Tigers (3-4-2) will be a home game against Oglethorpe University on Saturday, October 5 at 2:00 p.m.
