Covenant, Birmingham Southern Women Play To Double Overtime 3-3 Tie

Wednesday, September 22, 2021
The hard-fought efforts of the Covenant women's soccer team ended in a double overtime 3-3 tie at Birmingham-Southern Wednesday evening. 

The Scots dominated the offensive side, tallying a remarkable 33 shots for the game compared to the host Panthers' 11. 

Covenant did not take long to make the first attack, as Rachel Wall would score her first career goal in the third minute of play, giving the Scots a 1-0 lead. Birmingham-Southern would quickly answer back, though, in the sixth minute when Abby Walker (assisted by Amber Thompson) made it 1-1.

In the 16th minute, a Panther foul would give Kailey Burrell a penalty kick which she was able to sneak by Birmingham-Southern goalie, Ardis Haskell, making it 2-1 in favor of the Scots.
The score marked Burrell's seventh goal of the season.

In the 32nd minute, the Panthers would strike back, as Walker's second goal of the match would tie it up 2-2. The goal was assisted by Sophie Smith.

The Scots were not to be undone, though. Scoring her second goal in as many contests, Emma Riggs would then give Covenant a 3-2 lead in the 44th minute (assisted by Mae Pierce).

Entering the second half up by one, the Scots would continue to attack the Panthers' defense, posting 14 shots for the period. Unable to score, a Covenant foul would give Birmingham-Southern a penalty kick of their own in the 61st minute, where Smith was able to make it 3-3.  

Covenant was able to get off several shots in the closing minutes of regulation and during both overtime periods. However, the defense for both teams shut each other down, resulting in a 3-3 tie. 

The Scots tallied 18 shots on goal for the match. Wall led Covenant with 11 shots and one goal, while Burrell added 10 shots and a goal. Riggs finished with four shots and a goal. 

Lucy Sandhoff played the entire match, including both overtime periods. Sandhoff earned five saves on the Panthers' eight shots on goal.

Birmingham-Southern was led by Walker, who had five shots and two goals. Smith had one assist, one shot, and one goal. Haskell also played the entire contest, tallying 15 saves.

The Scots are now 3-4-1, while the Panthers sit at 2-4-2.

The Scots will open up conference play when they travel to LaGrange on Saturday, September 25. Kick-off is set for 2 p.m.
