Dores Drop SEC Opener

Peyton Cutshall scores in loss

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Vanderbilt’s unbeaten streak was snapped Sunday in a 2-1 defeat to LSU at the Vanderbilt Soccer Complex.

The Commodores, who entered conference play unbeaten through their first seven contests, fell behind in the 13th minute as the Tigers capitalized off a corner kick to take a 1-0 lead.

Peyton Cutshall came on as a sub in the 35th and made an immediate impact. Cutshall settled the ball to her right outside the box and fired a strike from long range, beating the LSU keeper for her first goal on the season and 10th of her career.

LSU regained momentum coming out of halftime and once again found the back of the net off another set piece, this one a free kick, scoring the game-winner in the 57th.

The Commodores earned several chances late but were unable to find the equalizer. Vandy finished with 11 shots to LSU’s 9.

Vanderbilt falls to 6-1-1 and will host Kentucky on Thursday at 7 p.m. CT.
