BIRMINGHAM, Ala.—Birmingham-Southern scored three unanswered goals to break a 1-1 tie and earn a 4-1 Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference win over Austin College, Sunday at BSC Soccer Park.
The win was the second straight for the Panthers, improving to 6-3 overall and 2-0 in the SCAC. Austin dropped to 4-4-2 overall and 0-2 in league play.
Senior Tyler Evans gave the Panthers an early 1-0 lead in the fourth minute off a pass from sophomore Ingvi Georgsson before Austin College tied the game on a goal by Andy Johnson in the ninth minute.
The Panthers scored two goals in a span of 1:05 during the first 10 minutes of the second half to take command of the match. Freshman Emil Saevarsson gave BSC a 3-1 lead in the 54th minute on a feed from senior Nicolas Reitmeier, who also scored the final goal just over a minute later to give BSC its final margin of victory.
The Panthers, who were outshot 8-6 in the first half, turned the tables in the second half with an 11-3 edge in shots to finish with a 17-11 advantage overall.
The Panthers go on the road for a pair of SCAC contests next weekend, beginning with a 1 p.m. MT match against Colorado College on Friday.
