COLUMBIA, S.C. - The Ole Miss soccer team fell on the road to #20 South Carolina, 3-0, Friday night.

With the loss Ole Miss fell to 5-6-1 (1-2 SEC) while #20 South Carolina improved to 8-2-2 (2-0-1 SEC).

South Carolina keeper Mollie Patton and the Gamecock defense showed why it leads the nation in shutouts (eight) as South Carolina held Ole Miss to just one shot in the match.

The Gamecocks got on the board in the 15th minute as Kira Campbell scored on a one-time touch volley off a cross from Danielle Au to go up 1-0. Ole Miss keeper Sarah Story made a huge save in the 22nd minute for the Rebels. South Carolina's Kayla Grimsley broke away from the Ole Miss defense and found herself in a one-versus-one with Story. Story came off her line and blocked Grimsley's attempt to keep the Gamecocks from increasing their lead.

In the 33rd minute, Dylan Jordan played the ball wide to Kendyl Mygatt on the right side. Mygatt took the ball to the endline and served it into the box where Mandy McCalla challenged South Calroina keeper Mollie Patton but Patton was able to punch the ball out of the box.

South Carolina continued its pressure in the second half the Gamecocks increased their lead to 2-0 in the 54th minute as Maria Petroni scored on a shot at the back post off an assist from Brooke Jacobs. In the 84th minute, Abbie Curran cleared the ball off the line for Ole Miss after a shot by the Gamecocks off a corner kick. South Carolina added its third goal of the match in the 87th minute as Lolly Holland scored off an assist from Petroni.

"South Carolina is a top 20 team for a reason," head coach Matt Mott said. "They came out and took it to us from the start of the game. We stayed in the game based on the play of Sarah Story until we tried to get a goal late and it cost us. We need to regroup and get ready to play at Florida."

The Gamecocks outshot the Rebels 16-1 in the match with Erin Emerson recording a shot for Ole Miss in the 90th minute. Story ended the game with five saves in goal.

Ole Miss will play at #6 Florida on Sunday at 12:30 p.m. CT.
