Box Score | BLOG: Rebels Battle to Draw on Historic Night

OXFORD, Miss. - Olivia Harrison scored the first goal of the season, taking a pass in the box from freshman Amanda Karlsson in the 54th minute Friday night to help Ole Miss (0-0-1, 0-0-1) rally for a 1-1 tie with Georgia (0-0-1, 0-0-1 SEC) in the season and conference opener for both teams.

The Rebels rallied to tie the game in front of a record crowd of 1,823 as Ole Miss faced off against Georgia in the first-ever live, on-campus broadcast of the newly launched SEC Network.

"It was a great college soccer game," said Ole Miss head coach Matthew Mott. "Both teams had tremendous energy, even if it wasn't the best soccer at times. I'm happy with the game and take the point in the SEC standings and move on for Iowa State on Sunday.

"The crowd was loud and I'm so proud of the Ole Miss faithful. They are such good fans all the times. They were loud and when we scored the place erupted. I wish we could have scored a second time for them, but I'm happy with the result and the effort."

Georgia struck first, scoring in the 39th minute when Carli Shultis delivered a corner kick from the near side of the field and found Gabby Seller in the box. Seller then struck the ball with precision, finding the back of the net to give the Bulldogs the early lead on the Rebels.

Ole Miss held the Bulldogs off the board the rest of the period, turning away several attacks to go into the half down only one goal despite being out-shot 9-to-6 in the period.

The Rebels came out firing in the second half, out-shooting the Bulldogs 6-to-0 through the early stages on the way to tying up the match.

In the 54th minute, the Rebels struck the game-tying blow when Karlsson gathered the ball at the top of the far side of the box and sent it in between defenders to find Harrison in the box. Harrison then put the ball in the back of the net to knot the score at 1-1.

Ole Miss out-shot the bulldogs 7-to-2 in the second period.

"Our freshmen really grew up quickly in a match that required them to grow up fast," Mott said. "Courtney Carroll played almost the whole match against some dangerous forwards. Liza Harbin and Amanda played well, especially with Amanda connecting with Olivia for her first collegiate assist. I'm proud of them."

The Rebels and Bulldogs played to a draw the rest of the way as both teams turned away attacks through the final 36 minutes of regulation and two overtime periods on the way to the draw.

Ole Miss will return to action on Sunday, stepping out of conference to host Iowa State at 1 p.m. at the Ole Miss Soccer Stadium.
