OXFORD, Miss. - Freshman keeper Sarah Story helped lead Ole Miss to a 0-0 double overtime tie against #18 Georgia Friday night in front of a season-high 912 fans.

Story ended the game with 17 saves which is the most saves in a game in program history. She broke April Coss' record of 16 set in 1995. It was also Story's third career shutout.

With the tie Ole Miss is 5-7-2 overall (1-3-1 SEC) while #18 Georgia is 7-2-4 (2-0-3 SEC).

Story was impressive in the first half for the Rebels, making a then career-high nine saves in the first 45 minutes alone. In the 37th minute she punched Nicole Locandro's shot up over the cross bar. In the 25th minute, Story again punched a ball over the crossbar to keep the Bulldogs off the board.

Ole Miss had a good look in the 77th minute as Dylan Jordan and Mandy McCalla used a give-and-go to get McCalla a shot. McCalla's shot went to the far post and forced the keeper to make a diving save.

In the 86th minute Alix Hildal had a chance for the Rebels with a left-footed shot that had the keeper beat but hit off the post. In the 120th minute Dylan Jordan had two close shots saved by Bulldogs keeper Ashley Baker.

Georgia outshot Ole Miss 29-12 in the matching including a 29-12 advantage in shots on goal. Erin Emerson, Jordan and McCalla each recorded three shots for Ole Miss.

"Tonight was a really gutty performance," first-year head coach Matt Mott said. "We battled tooth and nail. We found out legs in the second half and really started to get tighter on defense. Sarah was fantastic. She was excited about it and worked really hard the entire game."

The Rebels will host the Tennessee Lady Vols on Sunday at 1 p.m. and the match will be televised by CSS. The Oxford-Lafayette Human Society will be at the game as a part of the "Pet a Puppy Campaign" with adoptable dogs. They are also asking fans for donations including pet food, paper towels, fleece blankets and toys.
