Final Stats

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Ole Miss scored three unanswered goals to come from behind to beat Vanderbilt on the road, 3-2, Sunday afternoon. Sophomore Alix Hildal recorded her first career hat trick in the match for the Rebels.

With the win Ole Miss improved to 7-8-4 overall (3-4-3 SEC) while Vanderbilt fell to 8-8-2 overall (4-4-2 SEC).

In a physical match that featured a combined 25 fouls, six yellow cards and two penalty kicks, Ole Miss battled back from an early 2-0 deficit to post the win.

"What a great performance by this group," head coach Matt Mott said. "We started slow but it really shows character and heart to get a win on the road like this. Alix does it all for us. Not many people take two penalty kicks in a game and make them both. This was an amazing game for her."

The Commodores got on the board in the 2nd minute as Megan Kinsella scored on a cross in the six-yard box off an assist from Kristine Chaklos.

Less than three minutes later, a Vanderbilt player played the ball in behind Ole Miss defense. As Ole Miss keeper Sarah Story was coming off her line, Nicole Adams got around the Rebel defense and scored to put Vanderbilt up 2-0.

Ole Miss got on the board in the 28th minute on a penalty kick by Hildal. The Rebels earned the penalty kick after Dylan Jordan was taken down in the box after battling for a corner kick.

Ole Miss tied the game in the 37th minute on Hildal's second goal of the game. Morgan Zigelsky, who had just entered the match as sub, chased down a loose ball in the left corner. Zigelsky cut back, beat her defender and found Hildal at the top of the 18 yard box. Hildal's shot beat Vanderbilt keeper Rachel Bachtel to the far post.

Hildal completed the hat trick in the 49th minute as she converted her second penalty kick in the game. Jordan was collecting the rebound from her own shot and found Erin Emerson with a through ball into the box. Emerson was taken down in the box by a Vanderbilt defender and the Rebels were awarded their second penalty kick of the game.

Story kept the Commodores from tying the game in the 65th minute as she punched a shot from Catherine Wearn off the crossbar and out of bounds. The Rebels recorded nine shots in the game while the Commodores recorded 18. Mandy McCalla and Hildal each recorded three shots for Ole Miss. Story finished the game with nine saves in goal.

Ole Miss will end the regular season on Friday with a game at Mississippi State at 7 p.m.
