GAINESVILLE, Fla. - The Ole Miss soccer team suffered a couple of unlucky breaks as the Rebels team fell at #6 Florida, 3-0, Sunday afternoon.

With the loss, Ole Miss fell to 5-7-1 on the year (1-3 SEC) while #6 Florida improved to 10-1-1 overall (4-0 SEC).

In the 21st minute Florida got on the board as Ole Miss scored an own goal. The Gators Jazmyne Avant sent a cross into the box and keeper Sarah Story was coming off her line as an Ole Miss defender was coming across the box but her header was off the mark and Florida went up 1-0.

The Gators went up 2-0 in the 73rd minute at Nicky Kit's shot from just outside the 18 yard box hit off a Rebel defender and was redirected into the goal.

Florida added its third goal with 26 seconds left in the match on a goal by McKenzie Barney.

"I am very proud of our effort. We fought hard for 90 minutes," head coach Matt Mott said. "We had a couple of unlucky breaks with goals. Florida is a very, very good team and they are dangerous all over the field. I thought we defended well and our backline played tough."

Ole Miss ended the game with five shots while Florida finished the match with 18. Story ended the game with five saves in goal.

In the 6th minute Erin Emerson won a ball in the midfield and took on a number of Gator defenders. Emerson had Chelsea Heimann running with her and Emerson found Heimann through the defense but Heimann's near post attempt was saved.

A few possessions later, Taylor Cunningham took a driven corner kick to the back post where Mandy McCalla put a head on it. McCalla's header nearly beat Katie Fraine in goal as Fraine drove on the ball on the goal line.

Story made a big save for the Rebels in the 50th minute as she punched a shot from Barney over the crossbar.

Ole Miss will host five consecutive games in Oxford starting next weekend with a game against Georgia Friday night at 7 p.m. followed by a game against Tennessee on Sunday at 1 p.m. that will be televised by CSS.

Ole Miss will team up with the Humane Society next Sunday for a "Pet a Puppy" campaign. The Humane Society will have puppies and young dogs on hand at the game and are asking fans to brings items such as puppy, dog, and cat food along with items such as paper towels, Dawn liquid soap, collars for puppies and toys to donate to the Human Society.
