Rebels Host UAB Friday To Close Non-Conference Play
Ole Miss looks to match the best start in school history against UAB on Friday night.

OXFORD, Miss. – The Ole Miss soccer team, fresh off a top 25 ranking and holding a 6-0 record, will close out the non-conference portion of its schedule on Friday night when the Rebels host UAB at 7:30 p.m. at the Ole Miss Soccer Stadium.

The Rebels are coming off a pair of shutout wins last week to run the team’s streak of scoreless wins to four consecutive shutouts. Those shutouts have earned sophomore goalkeeper Kelly McCormick SEC Defensive Player of the Week honors for back-to-back weeks.

The Rebel backline and the Ole Miss offense will put those streaks on the line Friday night against the Blazers. The Rebels will also be looking to match the best start in school history with a win.

“UAB has beaten us my first two years here and they will have a good squad and have a very good coach,” said Ole Miss head coach Matthew Mott. “They are well organized and have scored multiple goals on us the last few years. We need to be ready in every facet of the game this weekend if we want to come out and be successful.”

The Rebels are led offensively by several players who combine for a balanced attack for Ole Miss this season. Twelve different players have notched assists on the season, while eight different players have scored goals.

Ole Miss’ offensive production has also been high as the Rebels rank among the league leaders in several categories. Ole Miss is tops in the SEC in goals, assists, shots and points. Several individuals also rank among the top in the SEC. Junior Mandy McCalla leads the SEC with six goals and is also tops in the league in shots and points, while junior Rafaelle Souza and freshman Olivia Harrison also rank in the top 10 in the SEC in points and goals. Freshman Sara Coleman is currently tied for second in assists with four.
