Box Score

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. - The Rebels got opportunities but were stymied on each attempt by the Lady Vol defense as No. 25 Ole Miss (9-3-1, 2-2-0 SEC) fell at Tennessee (7-3-1, 2-1-1 SEC) by a score of 3-0 on Friday night.

Mandy McCalla paced the Rebel offense with five of the team's 15 shots, but Ole Miss couldn't connect for a goal for the first time this season.

"It was a tough one tonight," said Ole Miss head coach Matthew Mott. "We played pretty well for most of the game and certainly created enough chances to score. We just didn't finish the chances we got to put the ball in the net. It's tough to play on the road in the SEC. We have to get recovered and prepare for a tough game on Sunday at Georgia."

Ole Miss made a quick run at the Tennessee defense when Rafaelle Souza intercepted a pass less than two minutes in and streaked down the far side of the field. Her shot was wide, however, and the Lady Vols turned the stop into an attack.

Ten minutes into the half, the Tennessee offense had taken four shots with four corners as the Lady Vols pressed the Ole Miss defense. The home team was turned away each time, with the Rebels answering the pressure.

Ole Miss turned the pressure around quickly, attacking for most of the rest of the period. At the half, despite no score the Rebels had out-shot the Vols. 9-to-7.

The Rebels came out firing in the second half, putting three quick shots up in the course of a few seconds, but the Tennessee keeper answered the challenge with a pair of deflections to keep Ole Miss off the board after the early flurry of action.

Ole Miss got its best chance of the night in the 57th minute when Erin Emerson took a cross from Mandy McCalla at point blank range in the six-yard box, but Tennessee's Eckel again answered the bell with a deflection that kept the Rebels scoreless.

Tennessee broke the stalemate in the 68th minute when Caroline Brown got loose on a breakaway following a defensive stop by the Lady Vols. Brown took the beat a defender and then put the ball in the net from the near side of the box to give Tennessee the 1-0 lead.

The Lady Vols added to the lead in the 76th minute when C.C. Cobb slipped past the Rebel defense after taking the ball from Aaron Parry and put the ball in the net from the top of the box.

The home team capped the scoring in the 86th minute on an unassisted goal from Amalie Thestrup to give the Lady Vols the final margin of victory.

Ole Miss will return to action on Sunday when the Rebels continue play on the road against the No. 20 Georgia Bulldogs at 1 p.m. CT.
