The men’s soccer team met an untimely end to its season, falling in the Southern Athletic Association Tournament Championship game to Centre by penalty kicks, and not receiving an at-large bid to the NCAA DIII Tournament. The Stormy Petrels beat Berry during Friday night’s semifinal, thanks in part to sophomore Sebastian Carlson‘s top corner banger.
