Hannah Elvington

SEWANEE, Tenn. -- After a 40-minute lightening delay, a pair of first half goals secured a 2-1 Meredith College victory over the host Sewanee Tigers in Saturday's non-conference action. Jessica Wallace and Hannah Elvington recorded one goal apiece for the Avenging Angels.

Meredith peppered the Sewanee goalie during the first 10 minutes of play, but Tiger defense held off the Angels attack. Wallace finally found a gap with her second attempt in the 20th minute to put Meredith on the board.

Two more attempts by Kirstie King and Wallace made room for Elvington's shot eight minutes later off a pass from rookie Morgan Tingen.

Freshman goalie Miranda Lutz entered in goal for Meredith at the break to finish out the match for Kat Pike.

The Angels defended their goal throughout the early part of the second period, but Mena Kerrison found her way into the box during the 77th minute. Ansley Bucknam notched a shot on goal a minute later, but Sewanee goalie Hannah Judycki stopped the attack to end the match with a one-point Angels advantage.

Pike earned her first win of the season recording three saves in the first half, and Lutz stopped two. Judycki recorded the Tiger loss with four saves for Sewanee.

The Avenging Angels host the annual Meredith Classic next weekend opening with Guilford Saturday, Sept. 8, at Noon.
