A story of two halves for Alabama Soccer

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. – The first half was not a good performance for football in Alabama.

The Crimson Tide didn’t show their usual intensity in the first 45 minutes against UC Irvine in the third round of the NCAA tournament. The overall performance wasn’t bad; Defense limited the Anteaters to just one shot and one corner kick throughout the first half.

It was offensive that the tide came up short.

Alabama had just two shots on target when the halftime whistle blew and just two corners, a long way from the team that led the NCAA with 70 goals before Sunday’s game.
