UT Martin, SEMO
battle to soccer tie

Two overtimes and 110 minutes of play were not enough to decide a victor at Houck Stadium as UT Martin tied Southeast Missouri 1-1 in the Ohio Valley Conference soccer opener for both squads Tuesday.
The Skyhawks (3-4-3) keep their unbeaten streak alive at four matches, having not lost since Sept. 7.
UT Martin outshot Southeast Missouri by a 19-11 margin, putting 13 of its attempts on goal. Kendyl Wilson continued her spectacular senior campaign with her team-high fifth goal of the season in the 33rd minute.

Mariah Klenke made four stops in all 110 minutes in goal for UT Martin. The stellar performance lowered her season Goals Against Average to 1.41.
The Skyhawks evened the score at the 32:32 mark, when Wilson found the back of the net for her 11th career goal, which ranks seventh all-time in UT Martin soccer history.
