Aug. 25, 2014
OXFORD, Miss. – Ole Miss senior goalkeeper Kelly McCormick has been named the Southeastern Conference Defensive Player of the Week after helping lead the Rebels to an undefeated weekend to open the 2014 season, the league office announced on Monday.
McCormick helped the Rebels play the Georgia Bulldogs to a 1-1 draw in the season opener Friday night as Ole Miss hosted the first ever live broadcast of an on-campus sporting event by the newly launched SEC Network. The senior goalkeeper posted four saves to allow her team the chance to rally and play the Bulldogs to the two-overtime draw and grab a point in the overall SEC standings.
The senior from Laguna Nigel, California, then came up big again in Sunday’s match against Big 12 opponent Iowa State. McCormick posted a shutout of the Cyclones, slowing down an Iowa State offense that scored five goals in a victory to open the season. It was the 22nd career start for McCormick to post a clean sheet.
McCormick also notched her first collegiate goal in the win over the Cyclones, delivering the game-winner on a penalty kick in the 24th minute as Ole Miss grabbed the 1-0 win.
The Rebels will return to action this weekend when Ole Miss travels to face Louisville on Friday afternoon at 5 p.m. CT before returning home to host Louisiana-Lafayette at 1 p.m. on Sunday.
