’Roo Women’s Soccer Falls to Birmingham-Southern

The Austin College women’s soccer team suffered their first loss of the season on Friday afternoon, falling to visiting Birmingham-Southern College 1-0 to fall to 5-1 overall on the year.

Austin College dominated play for much of the first half, out-shooting the Panthers 8-4, but neither team was able to score before the break. The ’Roos continued to control much of the second half with a 12-5 shot advantage but Birmingham-Southern’s Jamie Sullivan slipped a shot just inside the right hand post from 20 yards out to put BSC on top 1-0 in the 67th minute.

The ’Roos had several chances to equalize late but were unable to tally down the stretch en route to the one goal defeat. Kaitlin Elledge made a pair of saves in the net for Austin College. The goal for Birmingham-Southern is just the second that the ’Roos have surrendered all season.

Austin College is back in action on Sunday when they host Millsaps College with game time set for 12:00 p.m.
