AUBURN, Ala. – The Ole Miss soccer team played tough with No. 6 Duke but the Rebels fell to the Blue Devils, 1-0, Sunday at the Auburn Tournament in Auburn, Ala.
With the loss Ole Miss fell to 3-1-1 this year while Duke improved to 5-1.
The Blue Devils scored the game winner in the 76th minute as Kelly Cobb hit a shot from the six into the corner off an assist from Mollie Pathman.
“We battled a great Duke team today,” said head coach Matt Mott. “I was really happy with our team defending as a whole. Meredith Snow and Emily Sinovich were excellent on the backline.”
Allie Ronaldi made six saves in goal for the Rebels. It was the first goal allowed this year by the Rebels and it stopped Ole Miss’ scoreless streak at 455 minutes.
The Ole Miss defense faced 21 shots from Duke, but allowed just seven of those shots to be on goal. The Rebels recorded four with two on goal. Dylan Jordan and Alix Hildal each recorded a shot on goal for Ole Miss.
“I’m happy with how we fought against Duke but I’m never happy to lose,” Mott said. “We have to dust ourselves off and get ready for Memphis on Friday.”
The Rebels will play at No. 20 Memphis Friday at 7 p.m. followed by a game at home against The Citadel on Monday, September 12 at 1 p.m.
