Southern Virginia Drops Third Straight at Milligan

MILLIGAN COLLEGE, Tenn.—The Southern Virginia University women's soccer team lost its third straight game to begin the 2011 season Saturday evening falling to Milligan College, 3-0. 

Milligan's Samantha Barton put the Knights in an early 2-0 deficit when she scored back-to-back goals in the 26th and 28th minutes. 

Southern Virginia was never able to get its offense going against Milligan as the Buffaloes outshot the Knights 18-8 for the match.

Milligan iced the game in the 70th minute when Rachel Martin scored the Buffaloes' third and final goal. 

The Knights have yet to score a goal in three matches so far this season, however, their competition has been unforgiving facing two D-I schools (Radford, VMI) and NAIA-affiliated Milligan.

Southern Virginia will look to collect its first win of 2011 during their home opener on Tuesday, Sept. 13 at 4 p.m. against Randolph College.
