OXFORD, Miss. - The nationally-ranked Memphis Tigers came from behind to beat Ole Miss, 2-1, Sunday afternoon at the Ole Miss Soccer Stadium.
With the loss, Ole Miss fell to 2-4-1 on the year while Memphis improved to 6-1.
Chelsea Heimann scored in the 21st minute for the Rebels as she collected a rebound in the six-yard box and beat Memphis keeper Elise Kuhar-Pitter.
The Tigers tied the game in the 49th minute when Lizzy Simonim scored on a penalty kick. Memphis was awarded the penalty kick after an inadvertent hand ball in the box.
The Tigers scored the game-winner two minutes later when Taylor Isenhower collected a through ball from Christabel Oduro and scored on a close-range shot.
"It was a mistake on us (the penalty kick) that got them back in the game,"first-year head coach Matt Mott said. "We didn't start the second half like we wanted to but give credit to Memphis. Our effort was there but our execution wasn't."
Memphis outshot Ole Miss 20-11 in the game while the shots on goal were even at seven apiece. Mandy McCalla led the Rebels with three shots.
Ole Miss keeper Sarah Story, who made a number of key saves in the first half to keep Memphis off the board, ended the game with five saves.
Ole Miss will continue its four-game home stand next weekend hosting Southern Miss on Friday at 7 p.m. and TCU on Sunday at 1 p.m.
