OXFORD, Miss. - Ole Miss junior forward Regan Scanlon set a personal best with
four goals in leading the Lady Rebels (1-0) to an 8-0 win over the
University of Tennessee-Martin Skyhawks (0-1) Saturday.
The four goals ranks second all-time in the Ole Miss records and marks the
second time Scanlon has scored three or more goals in a game. Scanlon
scored three goals against the Skyhawks in 1998.
Playing in Martin, Tenn., Scanlon helped get the Lady Rebels on the board
by picking up an assist on Jessica O'Neill's goal in the first five minutes
of the game. Scanlon then scored three consecutive goals during an
11-minute stretch to give Ole Miss a 4-0 lead.
Junior Sarah Wong gave the Lady Rebels' a 5-0 advantage with a goal late
in the first half.
Ole Miss went ahead 6-0 on Scanlon's fourth goal of the day at the
70-minute mark in the second half.
Bridget Brooks and Megan Bowman, both freshmen, picked up their first
career collegiate goals in the victory. Brooks gave the Lady Rebels a 7-0
lead at the 78:45 mark off an assist from Amaris Weeks, and Bowman closed
out the scoring with a goal at the 83:57 mark.
The Lady Rebels' defense held the Skyhawks without a shot in the first
half and only six for the game. Senior goalkeeper Birna Bjornsdottir
recorded four saves for Ole Miss in the second half and shared the shutout
win with sophomore Melinda Smith who started the first half.
The Lady Rebels travel to Hattiesburg to take on Southern Mississippi on
Wednesday, Sept. 1. Ole Miss opens its 1999 home schedule Friday, Sept. 3,
at 7 p.m. against Southwest Missouri State.
