OXFORD, Miss. – Ole Miss battled back from three goals down in the first half to record a 4-4 double overtime tie with Arkansas Sunday afternoon at the Ole Miss Soccer Stadium.

With the tie, Ole Miss is 5-8-4 overall (1-4-3 SEC) while Arkansas is 5-8-3 (2-4-2 SEC).  The game was Ole Miss’ second double overtime match in its last two games and third in its last four matches.

Arkansas scored two goals within two minutes of each other early in the first half.  Kelsey Allison scored the first goal of the match in the 3rd minute as she finished with a close-range shot off a pass from Allie Chandler. The Razorbacks scored their second goal of the match in the 5th minute as Allison found Laurel Pastor who finished with a one-touch shot to the back post.

Arkansas went up 3-0 in the 32nd minute as Taylor Green scored off a corner kick. She took the corner from the left side and bent it in towards goal.  Her attempt hit off the underside of the crossbar and crossed the goal line.

Erin Emerson got the Rebels on the board in the 40th minute. Emerson fired a shot that forced Arkansas keeper Britini Williams to come off her line to punch it away.  Dylan Jordan collected the loose ball and played it over Williams to Emerson to bring the score to 3-1 in Arkansas’ favor.

Mandy McCalla scored for the Rebels on a penalty kick in the 54th minute to bring the score to 3-2.  Ole Miss was awarded the penalty kick after Emerson was taken down in the box.  The Razorbacks pushed their lead back up with a goal by Allison in the 58th minute to bring the score to 4-2.

Ole Miss answered as Alix Hildal scored off an assist from McCalla in the 76th minute to close the gap to 4-3.  Emerson scored the game-tying goal in the 83rd minute off an assist from McCalla.

Ole Miss had a chance to win the game in the second overtime but Emerson’s shot that had the keeper beat missed the back post in the 113th minute.
“We showed heart and soul today.  To be able to battle back from three goals down was great,” head coach Matt Mott said.  “We were probably a little tired from our double overtime game on Friday night but we battled back and scored some really good goals today.”

Arkansas outshot Ole Miss 31-20 in the game.  Emerson took a career-high eight shots with seven on goal for the Rebels.  Sarah Story made 11 saves in goal.

Ole Miss will play its final regular-season game at home on Thursday night hosting Kentucky at 7 p.m.  Senior Taylor Cunningham will be honored before the match for her career with the Rebels.
