Auburn vs Alabama Highlights | Soccer - March 27, 2021

A dominating offensive performance from the Auburn soccer team led to a 2-1 win over Alabama Saturday afternoon at the Alabama Soccer Complex.

The Tigers (8-5-3, 3-3-2 SEC) held an 18-1 shooting advantage over Alabama (7-7-2, 2-5-2) with eight shots on target. Auburn used goals in the 17th and 54th minutes to pull ahead 2-0, then allowed a 90th-minute Alabama goal on the only shot the Crimson Tide managed in the contest.

Saturday's win avenged a 1-0 loss to the Tide in the teams' earlier meeting this season in November.

"Really proud of the team," Auburn head coach Karen Hoppa said. "Last fall we felt like we let one get away at home against Alabama, and the girls really wanted to have this opportunity to have a second chance. I was proud of them, they made the most of it. We scored two terrific goals, and that's what you need to win on the road in the SEC."
