Stormy Petrels Get Late Goal from Marshall to Sink Sewanee

The Oglethorpe men's soccer team extended their SAA unbeaten streak to 16 games over three seasons Saturday at the Oglethorpe Track and Field, but it wasn't without some late drama. The Stormy Petrels found themselves tied with the visiting Sewanee Tigers, 2-2, in the final minutes. Senior midfielder Topher Marshall tallied the game-winning goal in the 88th minute, though, lifting his team to a 3-2 victory over Sewanee. The win improved the Petrels to 4-2 on the season overall and 2-0 in SAA play.

With just over two minutes to go, Marshall took a ball that had been deflected out of the box by a Sewanee defender and rocketed it past Tiger goalkeeper Evan Stuber to give the Petrels a 3-2 lead with mere minutes remaining.

That came after an Oglethorpe own goal in the 77th minute tied the game at 2-2. The Petrels had taken a 2-1 lead early in the second half, asserting control over a game that Sewanee led early. Sophomore midfielder Alan Hernandez got on the end of a pinpoint cross from sophomore defender Chris Welsh and headed it into the back of the net in the 57th minute, giving the home side the lead. The own goal put the game back on level terms, leading to the late winner.

The visitors took a 1-0 lead in the 15th minute when they got loose on a counterattack and were fouled in the penalty area. The Tigers' Kyle Johnston stepped up to give his team the lead from the spot, but the Petrels had an answer before halftime. Junior midfielder Andrew Grodhaus took a lofted ball from sophomore defender Sebastian Carlson and calmly slotted it past Sewanee goalkeeper James Murray to tie the score, 1-1, in the 26th minute. The score line stayed that way into the halftime break.

The Petrels controlled the run of play for most of the match, and outshot Sewanee 19-3 overall, including 10-1 in the second half. Oglethorpe also tallied 13 shots on goal to the Tigers' three and took nine corner kicks to the visitors' two.

Before getting back into SAA competition, Oglethorpe will head to Nashville, Tennessee, on Monday to take on Washington (Missouri) at 8 p.m. Eastern. After that, they'll hit the road in conference play, heading to Millsaps Friday night and Birmingham-Southern Sunday afternoon.
