Mackenze Parma and the Rebels will play Kennesaw State and Memphis this weekend.
Sept. 12, 2013
OXFORD, Miss. – The Ole Miss soccer team continues its season with another weekend of split matches as the Rebels will travel to face Kennesaw State on Friday night before returning home to host the Memphis Tigers on Sunday.
Friday’s match at Kennesaw State is set for a 6 p.m. CT kick-off, while Sunday’s home match against Memphis is set for a 7 p.m. CT kick.
The Rebels are coming off a hard-fought weekend at the Minnesota Gold Classic where Ole Miss played a pair of overtime matches against No. 13 Southern California and host Minnesota. The Rebels played the 13th-ranked Trojans to a 1-1 draw through two overtimes, before falling to the Golden Gophers in overtime 2-1 on Sunday.
The Rebels are led offensively by seniors Mandy McCalla and Rafaelle Souza who have both notched five goals on the season, while Souza has also chipped in three assists as the top ball distributor for Ole Miss. It’s been a balanced offense for the Rebels, though, as six different players have scored this season and the team has posted 18 goals through six matches.
In addition to the scoring, eight different Rebels have added assists with solid ball movement through the first six matches. Ole Miss has notched 11 assists on its 18 goals this season with three of the goals coming off penalty kicks.
The Rebel defense has played well this season through the first six matches, posting three shutouts to date. Ole Miss blanked Louisiana-Lafayette, Northwestern State and Saint Louis, while also picking up a win over UAB before the draw against the nationally-ranked Trojans and the lone loss at Minnesota which came in overtime and took a penalty kick in the waning second of regulation from the Golden Gophers to send the match into overtime.
