Auburn Soccer Falls to Alabama for Second Straight Year

Auburn put up 12 shots against Alabama in a 1-0 loss, while the Crimson Tide only put up seven shots and two on target, but that was enough as Alabama was able to find the back of the net early and hold on.

Auburn was only able put three of its 12 shots on target and gave Alabama goalie McKinley Crone a relatively stress-free night.

Coming off her overtime winner against LSU, Auburn forward Kori Locksley had two early shots on goal that Crone was able to take control of.

Alabama scored the only goal of the game with a Felicia Knox goal assisted by Riley Mattingly in the 37th minute. Auburn goalie Maddie Prohaska was able to get her hands on the shot but could not make the save.

Through seven games in 2020, Alabama had scored six of its nine goals in the first half.

The first half was a chippy one with Alabama committing eight fouls and Auburn committing three. No cards were shown, though.

Auburn shot the ball six times in the first half, while Alabama shot the ball five times.

Auburn doubled its shot total in the second half, but only Hailey Whitaker was able to put a shot on target on a breakaway. Her shot rebounded off the left post.

Alabama only shot the ball two times in the second half as it parked the bus and trusted its defense.

Auburn falls to 3-2-2 on the season and will face No. 3 Texas A&M on November 9 before heading to Orange Beach, Alabama for the SEC Tournament.
