Second-half goal lifts Sewanee over Maryville, 1-0

Maryville College suffered its first loss of the 2018 season, as a late second-half goal by Sewanee would lead the Tigers to a 1-0 victory.

The Scots outshot the Tigers, 15-7, as MC had eight shots on goal to just a trio from Sewanee.

However, a single goal in the 64th minute would give the Tigers the one-goal victory in the physical game.

The two squad combined for 22 total fouls in the match, as Maryville seemed to control the tempo. The Scots had seven corner kicks to just three from Sewanee.

The lone goal – a redirection play – would be the only thing that separated the two schools.

The Tigers' Evan Poole collected a throw in just inside the box on the right side. Poole pushed a pass across the box, finding Kyle Johnston who would redirect it with a right foot into the left of the net from 5 yards out.

The goal with 63:29 would be enough, as Tiger keeper James Murray posted eight saves on the day.

Maryville (1-1-0) was led by Milan Card who had three shots with a pair on goal. Gavin Dougherty, Randy Reichenberger, Johnny Rakhmonberdiev, Kai Miettinen and Bralen Clouse each had two shots on the day, as Miettinen added a pair on goal.

Ryan Jorgensen had two saves for Maryville with 90 minutes in goal.

Sewanee (2-2-0) saw Ben Vaeth and Severin Velasco combine for four seven shots on the day.

Maryville will have a couple days off, before they open USA South play. The Scots will host Covenant College on MC's pitch on Tuesday, Sept. 11. First touch for the conference opener is slated for 7:00 p.m.
