Covenant Women Fall To Piedmont In Overtime

Tuesday, October 12, 2021
The Covenant women's soccer team saw its seven-match unbeaten streak come to a halt on Tuesday as Piedmont's Abby Judge scored the golden goal in the 105th minute to lift the host Lions to a 1-0 win over the Scots.

The loss was the first for Covenant (7-5-2, 3-1-1 USA South) since Sept. 14 and snapped a seven-match unbeaten streak for the Scots, along with a five-match shutout streak.

It was Covenant's longest unbeaten streak since going seven consecutive in 2016, while the five straight shutouts were the most since 2016 and tied for third in program history.

The lone goal of the contest came in dramatic fashion in the 105th minute.
As Covenant attempted to clear the ball out of Piedmont's attacking zone, the Lions' Judge came on and booted the ball back towards the box. The kick sailed and went over Scots' keeper Lucy Sandhoff's outstretched arms and into the net for the game-winner.

It was Judge's first goal of the season.

The score halted a stretch of over 624 consecutive shutout minutes for Covenant's defense. It is the third-longest stretch in program history and spanned seven matches from Sept. 18-Oct. 12.

Covenant out-shot Piedmont 16-12 in the match, and 6-5 in shots on goal. Aiden Strawbridge had two attempts on target in the second half, while Kailey Burrell and Emma Riggs had one apiece. Strawbridge, Burrell, and Rachel Wall all had shots in the overtime sessions, but could not find the mark.

Strawbridge finished with a match-high seven shots and Burrell added three attempts.

Sandhoff was outstanding at the net once again for the Scots as she made four saves. Piedmont keeper Laila Allen made six saves to preserve the shutout.

Piedmont (8-3-3, 4-1 USA South) was led by Kaylee King's three shots.

Covenant returns to Scotland Yard on Saturday to face Wesleyan at 2 p.m. Senior Day recognition will take place prior to the match.
