LEXINGTON, Ky. – The Ole Miss soccer team won its second straight game Sunday afternoon with a 2-1 overtime win at Kentucky.
With the win, Ole Miss improved to 7-10-1 overall (3-7 SEC) while Kentucky fell to 12-6 overall (5-5 SEC).
Alix Hildal scored the game winner for the Rebels in the 92nd minute on an unassisted goal.
“I’m so proud of the team today,” head coach Matt Mott said. “With our backs against the wall, we came out fighting and got a great win. We got a great early goal from Dylan and Alix put the team on her back to score the goal in overtime. It was a really good win against a good team on the road.”
The game marked the team’s first overtime win this season. The Rebels are now 1-2-1 in overtime games this season.
Dylan Jordan scored her second goal of the week and eighth of the season in the 46th minute as she finished a cross from Mandy McCalla.
Kentucky wasted little time tying the game as the Wildcats’ Kelsey Hunyadi scored in the 49th minute as she hit a long-range shot that beat Rebel keeper Kelly McCormick.
As a team, Ole Miss took 15 shots with five on goal while Kentucky recorded 22 with seven on goal. McCormick made six saves in goal.
The Rebels will close out the regular season at home Friday night at 7 p.m. when the team hosts Mississippi State. The game, which will be televised on Fox Sports, will mark the last regular-season home game for the Rebels’ six seniors.
Ole Miss is still in the hunt to qualify for the 2011 SEC Soccer Tournament. The Rebels can qualify if they beat Mississippi State on Friday night and Alabama either ties or loses to Auburn on Friday.
