AUBURN, Ala. – The Ole Miss soccer team kept its opponent off the scoreboard for the fourth consecutive game as the Rebels recorded a 0-0 double overtime tie against Wright State Friday night at the Auburn Tournament.
With the tie, Ole Miss is now 3-0-1 on the year and remains unbeaten in its first four matches of the year. This season’s start ties the program record for the best start to a year, through the first four games, with the 2005 team who went 4-0.
“It was a tough match for us in terms of heat, especially with the 4:30 p.m. start,” head coach Matt Mott said. The temperature at kickoff was 91 degrees. “We created a number of chances tonight we were just missing the final pass and we weren’t clean with our finishes.”
Ole Miss had its chances on the night with four players each recording four shots. Rafaelle Souza recorded four shots with two on goal, Emily Reid took four with one on goal and Alix Hildal recorded four.
Goalkeeper Alley Ronaldi recorded her second shutout of the year and extended Ole Miss’ scoreless streak to 380 minutes. The 380 minutes the Rebels have kept their opponents off the scoreboard is the longest scoreless streak in program history to start the year. It’s also the longest scoreless streak at any point in the season since 2009 when the team held its opponents scoreless for 450 consecutive minutes.
“We were good defensively tonight. It was a battle,” Mott said. “I told the team all week that Wright State was a good team and it showed.”
Ronaldi, who made seven saves in goal for the Rebels, had a big save in the second half to keep the Raiders off the scoreboard.
“Alley had an excellent game” Mott said. “She had that huge save in the second half and she was the highlight of our defense.”
Ole Miss will play No. 9/6 Duke Sunday morning at 11:30 a.m. in the Auburn Tournament. Duke and tournament host Auburn will play late Friday night.
