#3 Bulldogs hosted #6 Truett McConnell bears in the quarterfinal round of the AAC Tournament on Saturday. In the previous matchup of the season, TWU won 2-0 and were looking for another win.
Truett McConnell came out looking to win, outshooting the Bulldogs in the first half 8-4, but no one was able to find the back of the net.
In the 81st minute OT Bah was fouled by the goalie, who was given a red card, in the box, giving the Bulldogs a scoring opportunity. With Truett having to put in fresh legs in the goal, Joe Taylor stepped up to take the penalty kick and sent it soaring past the new goalie.
TWU stayed on the defensive for the final nine minutes to successfully keep the Bears from scoring.
In the end, the Bears outshot the Bulldogs 13-6, but both teams only had two on goal.
TWU will advance to the semifinal round to be played at Union College on Thursday and Friday.
#1 Union will face #4 Bluefield at 1:30 pm, while #2 Bryan will play #3 TWU on Thursday at 4:00 pm. The winners of both games will compete for the Championship on Friday at 2:00 pm.
