OXFORD, Miss. – The Ole Miss soccer team kicks off a split weekend with a road match at Louisville on Friday afternoon before returning home to host the Ragin’ Cajuns of Louisiana-Lafayette on Sunday at the Ole Miss Soccer Stadium.
Friday afternoon’s match at Louisville will begin at 4:30 p.m. CT and is slated for broadcast online at ESPN3.com. Sunday afternoon’s match against Louisiana-Lafayette is set for a 1 p.m. kick and will be broadcast on the SEC Network Plus.
Admission to all matches at the Ole Miss Soccer Stadium is free to the public.
Ole Miss and Louisville will play each other for the first time in the history of the two programs when the Rebels and Cardinals hit the pitch Friday afternoon.
The Rebels enter the contest with an overall record of 1-0-1 after playing Georgia to a draw in the season opener and posting a shutout win over Iowa State to complete the opening weekend of play.
Louisville comes into the match with an overall record of 1-1-0 after posting a season-opening win over Wright State on the road by a score of 2-1 and then falling at Illinois by a score of 2-0 last weekend. Isabella Habuda scored both goals for the Cardinals at Wright State off assists from two different players.
Senior goalkeeper Kelly McCormick is the reigning SEC Defensive Player of the Week after posting a shutout of Iowa State and notching the game-winning goal on a penalty kick against the Cyclones. She also helped the Rebels to the draw with Georgia to pick up a point in the SEC standings.
Junior Olivia Harrison scored the game-tying goal for the Rebels against Georgia, taking the ball from freshman Amanda Karlsson to equalize the game last Friday. It was the first goal of the season for Harrison and 14th for her career, while it was the first career assist for Karlsson.
Louisiana-Lafayette enters the weekend with an overall record of 1-1-0 after picking up a win over Sam Houston State in the season opener before falling to Southeastern Louisiana to close out the weekend. The Ragin’ Cajuns will face McNeese State on Friday before taking on the Rebels this Sunday.
Ole Miss is 2-0 against UL-Lafayette all-time, picking up a 1-0 win over the Ragin’ Cajuns in the 2012 season and posting a 4-0 win a year ago in Oxford.
