OXFORD, Miss.  - The Ole Miss soccer team scored first in the match but Tennessee came from behind to beat the Rebels 3-1 Sunday afternoon at the University of Mississippi Soccer Stadium. 

With the loss, Ole Miss fell to 5-8-2 (1-4-1 SEC) while Tennessee improved to 7-6-1 (4-1-1 SEC). 

Ole Miss got on the board in the 13th minute as Mandy McCalla scored her third goal of the year.  Erin Emerson played McCalla in behind the Lady Vol defense and McCalla beat Tennessee keeper Molly Baird to the far post.

Tennessee got on the board in the 19th minute on an Ole Miss own goal.  Emily Dowd was running near post to track down a pass while Rebel keeper Sarah Story was coming off her line.  As Story was coming off her line, an Ole Miss defender put the ball in the goal.

The Lady Vols increased their lead in the 24th minute as Kylie Bono played a ball through the right side of the Ole Miss defense that found Caroline Brown who gave the Lady Vols a 2-1 lead.

In the 58th minute, McCalla and Emerson used a give-and-go to get Emerson behind the Tennessee defense but her shot was saved by Baird.

The Lady Vols added their third goal of the match in the 88th minute as Dowd added an insurance goal.
"Tennessee came out and worked harder," first-year head coach Matt Mott said.  "We have got to find a way to play two games in a weekend.  After Tennessee scored the second goal we had to chase and we couldn't ever get control of the ball."

Story made eight saves in goal for Ole Miss while Baird made six for Tennessee.  The Lady Vols outshot the Rebels 24-13 in the match.  McCalla led Ole Miss with five shots.

Ole Miss will host LSU on Friday at 7 p.m. followed by a game against Arkansas on Sunday at 1 p.m. in Oxford.  The Arkansas/Ole Miss game will be televised by Fox Sports South.
