On Sunday afternoon, the Georgia women’s soccer team defeated Kansas in Lawrence to advance to the second round of the NCAA Tournament. Following a scoreless first half, Ashley Miller broke the deadlock in the 52nd minute to give the Red and Black a 1-0 lead. Alexa Newfield put the game away in the 59th minute with the goal that gave the Bulldogs a 2-0 triumph.
Georgia joins fellow SEC teams Auburn, Florida, and South Carolina in the second round, to which the Classic City Canines have advanced for the sixth time overall and the second time in a three-year span. The Bulldogs are 6-7-1 all-time in eight tourney appearances, but, if they are to even their postseason ledger, it will have to be by beating top-seeded Duke in Durham on Friday.
