Lady Petrels Fall to Rhodes, 2-0, on Senior Day

The Oglethorpe women's soccer team lost its final home game of the season, 2-0, to Rhodes Sunday afternoon. The loss drops the Lady Petrels to 4-6 on the season, 1-2 in SAA play.

Oglethorpe fell behind 1-0 in the 21st minute, but the back-breaking goal came in the 45th minute, five seconds before halftime. That goal put the Lady Petrels down by two goals just before the half, and they would never recover from it.

Rhodes outshot Oglethorpe 13-6 in the game, and took six corner kicks to Oglethorpe's one.

Before the game, the Oglethorpe women's soccer team honored this year's graduating seniors, defender Jordan Weaver and midfielder Kendall Burke, for their efforts on and off the field.

The Lady Petrels will next take the field Saturday at 5 p.m., when they will travel to Centre for another SAA matchup.
