BIRMINGHAM, Ala. – The Birmingham-Southern women's soccer team was defeated by the Sewanee Tigers 3-1 at home on Sunday afternoon.
After opening the scoring in the first half, the Panthers allowed three unanswered goals to fall in their second straight Southern Athletic Association contest. Birmingham-Southern's record now stands at 8-5-2 and 3-2-1 in the SAA.
Junior forward Sydney Barrow (Birmingham, Ala./Indian Springs HS) scored BSC's lone goal in the 30th minute, striking a ball from outside the box that pinged off the left post and in. The goal was Barrow's ninth, the most on the team alongside freshman Gabby Bernal (Odenville, Ala./John Carroll Catholic HS).
Sewanee would equalize before halftime and then add two goals in the final 45 minutes to hand the Panthers the 3-1 loss.
BSC took 11 total shots with three shots on goal and had seven corner kicks to Sewanee's six. Junior goalkeeper Blakley Jones (Tuscaloosa, Ala./Holy Spirit Catholic HS) finished the match with eight saves.
Sunday's game, the last regular-season home game for the Panthers, served as Senior Day. Prior to the match, three BSC seniors – midfielder Rachael Motamed (Birmingham, Ala./Indian Springs HS), defender Nicole Malegni (Huntsville, Ala./St. John Paul II Catholic HS) and team manager Ann Mirette Carroll – were recognized for their dedication to Birmingham-Southern both on the field and in the classroom.
