SEWANEE, Tenn. – The Birmingham-Southern women's soccer team fell on the road to the Sewanee Tigers 2-1 in overtime on Friday evening, dropping to 6-4-3 overall and 0-3-2 in the Southern Athletic Association.
After going down 1-0 to start the game, the Panthers equalized late to send the game into overtime. But the Tigers scored the sudden victory goal early in the first overtime period, keeping BSC winless in conference play.
Sewanee's Caitlin Fahr opened up the scoring in the eighth minute and the Tigers would take the 1-0 lead into halftime.
Birmingham-Southern would eventually find a goal to move level with Sewanee in the 80th minute. Sophomore Abby Kay Choate (Tifton, Ga./Tift County HS) scored the game-tying goal with an assist from her sister, freshman Emma Choate (Tifton, Ga./Tift County HS).
The elder Choate's goal held until the end of regulation, sending the Panthers and Tigers, tied at 1-1, to overtime. But just under two minutes into the first OT period, Sewanee's Nika Gorski found the game-winning goal after a successful cross by Fahr.
Birmingham-Southern will travel to Danville, Ky., on Sunday, October 14 to face No. 9 Centre in its final regular season road game. Kickoff against the Colonels is scheduled for noon.
