Men Earn a Tie in Two Weekend Conference Matches
The Oglethorpe University men's soccer team competed in two SCAC matches this past weekend, falling to Rhodes College on Friday by the score of 3-0 and earning a tie against Hendrix College on Sunday, 2-2.
The Petrels got an early unassisted goal from Ben Robertson to
take a 1-0 lead over the Lynx and made that score stand up until
late in the second half. Rhodes, however, found the back of the net
three times in the game's final twenty minutes to secure the 3-1
Oglethorpe again struck first against Hendrix on Sunday as Aaron Walker took a feed from EJ Ovie-Ogodo to give the Stormy Petrels a 1-0 lead. The Warriors equalized just before the half and then took a 2-1 lead in the game's 64th minute. Ovie-Ogodo equalized for Oglethorpe on a penalty kick only moments later and the score remained tied throughout two overtime periods. Ovie-Ogodo did have a chance on another penalty kick in overtime but the Warriors keeper Adam Legg denied the bid.
After consecutive weekends on the road the Stormy Petrels (6-8-2) return home to host Trinity and Southwestern this coming weekend.
