The Colonels had two wins and three losses after an exhibition game against Kentucky.
Thomas made a free throw to bring the score to 28-26 before Sewanee began to hit their stride. Sewanee started to drive to the basket hard, making five layups on a run that put the Tigers up 41-28 with 2:41 to play in the half. Hunter Buescher (C’19) made a jump shot with three seconds left to play to bring the score at halftime to 48-34.
“The Tigers had lost the possession battle the last two games and were looking to change this against Centre to give their defense time to rest against such a powerful offense.”
“For Family Weekend, the stands were packed for the first game under the lights in Sewanee’s history.”
“The third quarter, a slightly slower outing, saw just one touchdown as Thompson ran in a touchdown from seven yards out. “
“A high scoring outing, Sewanee’s first half included a touchdown run by Warren Holland (C’20), a 66 yard punt return by William Phillips (C’21), and a 13 yard pass to Allan Puri (C’20) from Alex Darras (C’21), giving the Tigers 21 points at the end of the first half. “
“As a whole, Price and Elizabeth Gill (C’18) put up some excellent blocks, and Caroline Owens (C’19) had some nice controlled hits from the right side, but Covenant’s Ginny Moore, Allie Jakes, and Olivia Becker had some heavy fire hits right down the line and off the block that pushed them forward in the games they won.”
