Women's soccer blanked 4-0 at Sewanee

The Oglethorpe women's soccer team had a rough second half Saturday in Sewanee, Tennessee, as they gave up three goals to the homestanding Sewanee Tigers and fell 4-0. The loss dropped the Stormy Petrels to 8-3 on the season overall and 0-2 in SAA play.

The teams played a fairly even first half, as Sewanee only outshot Oglethorpe 8-6 and Petrel junior goalkeeper Lindsey Bolas came up with five saves. However, the Tigers scored in the 40th minute to take a 1-0 edge into the halftime break.

The Petrels and Sewanee were still pretty much even on the shot count in the second half, with the home side outshooting the Petrels 6-5. However, the Tigers tallied goals on three of their six shots, scoring in the 51st, 78th and 87th minutes. 

Sewanee outshot Oglethorpe 14-11 for the game, including a 10-2 mark in shots on goal. The Petrels took eight corner kicks to Sewanee's two.
