Alabama Soccer Takes Down Auburn to Cap Impressive Regular Season
The No. 3 Alabama Crimson Tide soccer team was victorious in the Iron Bowl Thursday night, taking down Auburn in its final regular season game.
The win wasn’t like the usual dominance that the team has displayed much of the season, however. It took a late game header from forward Riley Tanner on a pass from midfielder Kat Rogers in the 86th minute to lift the Tide over the Tigers, and it ended up being the only score of the entire contest.
The win cements the Tide’s perfect season in SEC play (10-0), and finish with a final record of 17-1-1, while the Tigers finish 6-6-6. The group is the first team in the conference since South Carolina in 2016 to run the table.
The team finished with 160 points on the season, the most in program history. Additionally, the victory is Alabama's 13th consecutive win this season, the second-longest winning streak in the country.
Alabama will enter the SEC tournament as the No. 1 seed, and will begin play on Tuesday at 5 p.m. CST on the SEC Network. The opening matchup will be the winner of the match between the No. 8 seed Mississippi State Bulldogs and the No. 9 seed Texas A&M Aggies.
