FAYETTEVILLE - Arkansas got a goal from Sam Wolf in the 62nd minute and held off several late attacks by Auburn for a 1-0 Southeastern Conference soccer victory over the Tigers at Razorback Field on Sunday.
The win is Arkansas' first over the Tigers since 2000, and improved the Razorbacks to 7-8-1 overall and 4-5-1 in the SEC. The Tigers are now 9-8-0 and 5-5-0.
"It wasn't pretty, but we got the result," head coach Colby Hale said. "We want to be a team that grinds out wins, and that's what we did today. We dodged a bullet or two, but earlier this year we had some games that didn't go our way. We had players fighting for 90 minutes with heavy legs and they deserve the win. We're really proud of them."
The only score came at 61:45 after an Auburn foul in the deep right corner, just outside the 18. Allie Tripp played the free kick from about 23 yards away into the six, and Wolf stepped up from the back side and headed the shot into the right corner of the goal.
The Tigers put pressure on the Arkansas defense the rest of the way, but the Razorbacks turned back each attempt.
