OXFORD, Miss. – Following a successful opening weekend that saw the Ole Miss soccer team post a 2-0 record, the Rebels will continue play on the road with a midweek contest at Troy on Wednesday at 3 p.m.
Ole Miss (2-0) enters the match-up after picking up a season-opening win over Saint Louis before taking down Middle Tennessee State on the road Sunday, while Troy enters the match with a 2-0 record after taking wins over Alabama A&M and Alcorn State.
The Rebels have seen several players step up through the first two matches, including a pair of juniors in Mandy McCalla and Rafaelle Souza. McCalla has scored a pair of goals and notched two assists in the first two contests to help Ole Miss outscore its opponents 6-2.
McCalla delivered the game winning goal and an assist in the 3-1 win over Saint Louis before scoring a goal and delivering the assist on the game-winner to beat Middle Tennessee State. Souza has also come up with a pair of goals this season to help the Rebels to the pair of victories.
Several newcomers are also making an impact early in the season with five freshmen starting the season opener against the Billikens. Midfielder Jennifer Miller also delivered her first career goal with the game-winner against the Blue Raiders on Sunday night.
