SEWANEE, Tenn. -- The Covenant men's soccer team saw its three-match win streak snapped, but the Scots rallied to secure a 1-1 draw at Sewanee on Saturday evening in non-conference action.
Covenant moves to 3-0-1 on the year, while Sewanee is 2-1-1.
The Scots trailed for most of the match as Sewanee scored in the ninth minute. The host Tigers got a goal from Thompson Schollaert, assisted by Austin Young, to go ahead 1-0 early in the contest. The goal was Schollaert's first of the year.
That score stood until the 76th minute. Josh Brower scored for a second straight match as he knotted the score at 1-1 with a goal, assisted by Anthony Buzzeo. The goal was Brower's second of the season.
Both teams had opportunities in the overtime sessions. Buzzeo had his attempt saved by Sewanee keeper James Murray in the second minute of the first overtime period, one of two attempts the Scots had in the first overtime. Sewanee had three shots in the first extra session, but each was off target.
In the second overtime, Sewanee serviced the ball into the box in the 109th minute and Tashinga Vhumisai had a chance from the top of the six-yard box after a scramble, but the attempt was gathered in by Covenant keeper Paul Lemay to end the threat. The Scots would have the last opportunity with a corner kick in the waning moments, but Sewanee was able to clear the ball as time expired.
Sewanee held a slim, 15-13, edge in total shots as Brower led all players with five attempts. Lemay made seven saves on the night, while Murray registered six as both keepers played all 110 minutes.
Covenant will be back in action on Saturday, Sept. 14 at Brevard to open USA South play. Kick-off is set for 3 p.m.
