Sewanee's soccer teams swept Millsaps in a Southern Athletic Association doubleheader Sunday afternoon in Jackson, Miss., with the men winning 3-2 and the women winning 1-0. In the men's match, the Tigers (6-6, 2-2) got goals from Ben Vaeth, Andile Tshuma and Rhodes Hall to drop the Majors (5-5-2, 1-2-1). Vaeth's unassisted score tied it at 1-all in the 20th minute, while Tshuma gave Sewanee its first lead when he took advantage of Vaeth's pass in the 41st minute. Millsaps answered less than a minute later with a tying goal, but Hall's score in the 47th minute provided the final margin as Sewanee's defense held in the second half. James Murray made six saves for the Tigers — who were outshot 19-10 overall and 11-5 on goal — and Will Merriman stopped three shots. In the women's match, Doris Ellis scored in the 32nd minute for the Tigers (5-6-1, 3-1), whose Savannah Williams made three saves to earn the shutout in goal. Millsaps (1-10-1, 0-4) took just five shots to the Tigers' 11, with Sewanee finishing with an 8-3 advantage in shots on goal.
