The Ole Miss soccer team won its season opener, 4-0, against Louisiana-Lafayette on Friday night in front of 1,592 fans, the second-highest attendance in program history, at the Ole Miss Soccer Stadium. 

Freshman Addie Forbus scored in her first career collegiate game to give the Rebels a 1-0 lead. Sophomore Jennifer Miller netted a pair of goals, including a penalty kick after sophomore Olivia Harrison was fouled in the penalty area, while senior Mandy McCalla, who tied with fellow Rafaelle Souza as the top scorer in the SEC last season, added the final goal.

Friday night also marked the collegiate debut for redshirt freshman Georgia Russell, who suffered a season-ending knee injury in the preseason last season. Two other freshmen, Melissa Capocaccia and Gretchen Harknett, started in their collegiate debuts, while fellow freshmen Heather Lacy and Mackenze Parma, like Forbus, came off the bench in their debuts. 

The Rebels return to action at 7 p.m. on Sunday, when they travel to take on the UAB Blazers.
