Crimson Tide Soccer:


The Alabama soccer team fell to the Texas A&M Aggies, 1-0, in double overtime in the first round of the Southeastern Conference Tournament on Monday night at the Orange Beach Sportsplex in Orange Beach, Ala. The Crimson Tide concludes the 2016 campaign with an overall 9-8-2 record.

Defense was the tale of the first half, as both teams entered halftime scoreless. In the fifth minute, junior Hailey Brohaugh took the Tide's first corner kick of the contest but it was unable to convert. Two minutes late, junior goalkeeper Kat Stratton registered her first save of the match off a Texas A&M header.

Alabama's defensive presence continued to disturb the Aggies early on, as senior Jordan Meier blocked a hard shot in the box in the 15th minute.  In the 39th minute, sophomore Emma Welch took the Alabama's lone shot of the half but the Texas A&M goalkeeper came up with the save. The Tide recorded two corner kicks in the half, while Stratton collected three saves.

The narrative remained the same in the second half, as Stratton had an athletic save at the 47:39 minute mark to prevent an Aggie goal. One minute later, junior Chatham DeProspo took Alabama's second shot of the contest but it was scooped up by the Texas A&M goalkeeper.

Sophomore Abbie Boswell got a clean look at the goal in the 50th minute, but an Aggie defender blocked her shot. Six minutes later, sophomore Tori Gann ripped a shot on goal but the Texas A&M goalkeeper came up with another save. Stratton remained solid between the posts, as she delivered a huge save for the Tide at the hour mark.

At the 71:03 minute mark, Brohaugh headed the ball off the top of the crossbar off a pass from Welch. Stratton recorded back-to-back saves in the 85th minute, before going on to tally another in the 86th minute.

The Tide was unable to make a final offensive attack, and both teams ended regulation scoreless. Alabama registered six shots and three corner kicks in the half, while Stratton tallied six more saves.

In the first overtime, Stratton remained active between the posts picking up two saves within the first two minutes. The Tide was unable to record a shot in the first overtime, but it didn't allow the Aggies to register another shot and both teams went in to the second overtime scoreless.

Two minutes into the second overtime, Stratton blocked an Aggie shot and on the rebound Texas A&M's Emily Bates found the back of the net for the game-winning goal.
