On Oct. 21, 2018, the University of Georgia soccer team faced the Alabama Crimson Tide in their last regular season home game. The Dawgs finished 1-1 in double overtime. Unfortunately ending in a draw means that the UGA team will not be advancing to the playoffs this year.
This being the last home game of the season, it was senior day. Seniors were honored before the start of the match. Despite over 17 shots, the Dawgs were unable to score a second goal to push the victory. In the college soccer regular season there are no penalty kick shoot-outs. Overtime periods are played as sudden-victory periods, meaning that if a team scores, they automatically win and the rest of the overtime period is not played. After regular time and two of these periods, neither team was able to claim victory.
