SEWANEE, Tenn. - The Agnes Scott College soccer team struggled to find their offensive rhythm, but played a strong game defensively in a 2-0 loss to Sewanee (9-3-0) on the road this afternoon.  The Scotties (4-7-0) held the Tigers to two goals, from only 6 shots on goal in the match.

Sewanee, who had been averaging 3 goals per game coming in to the contest, were held without a shot on goal before Jordan Najmabadi finally put the home team on top in the 33rd minute.  The rest of the half would remain scoreless, with Najmabadi's goal being the only shot on goal in the half for the Tigers.

The second half would see even more defense from the Scotties, as goalkeeper Sydney Holstad saved four of the five shots that were on target, the only exception being a goal from Grace Priest off of a corner kick in the 66th minute of play.  Overall, the Tigers would outshoot the Scotties, 20-0, for the game.  

The Scotties will return to action on Saturday, October 18, as they travel to face off with Judson College (AL) in a 2:00 p.m. contest.
