After an intense battle that stretched beyond expectations, the Warriors are gearing up for a crucial face-off against the Sewanee Tigers in Sewanee, TN.
Their recent victory against the Oglethorpe Stormy Petrels in a nail-biting shootout kept their dreams alive, with neither team managing to score in regular play, reminiscent of the 2007 Miami Dolphins vs Pittsburgh Steelers Monday Night Football game.
Despite the challenging conditions that hindered ball movement, the Warriors showed resilience, securing 18 shots, 5 of which were on target.
As the #4 seed, the Warriors are eyeing an upset against the #1 seed Sewanee Tigers, who previously triumphed 2-0 during their clash in October at Sewanee.
Looking to break their losing streak against the Tigers, the Warriors haven’t emerged victorious since the 2018 SAA conference tournament.
Their earlier encounter in October saw the Warriors struggle to create opportunities, managing only two shots, one of which was on goal.
In contrast, the relentless Tigers launched an aggressive offense, tallying 20 shots, 10 of which were on target. With the support of 2nd Team All-SAA player Madison Lampkin, the Warriors aim to ignite their offense early.
Sewanee, known for their formidable defense, leads the SAA in the least number of goals conceded, while the Warriors hold the 4th spot in this statistic.
The highly anticipated match is scheduled for Friday, November 3rd at 4:00 PM.
