OXFORD, Miss. - The Ole Miss-Memphis women's soccer match, originally scheduled for Sunday afternoon, will be played Monday at 7 p.m. CST at Echles Field in Memphis.

In respect to the tragedy suffered by our nation on Tuesday, the Rebels' Friday home-opener with Jacksonville State and the Memphis game on Sunday were both postponed. No make-up date has been set for the JSU contest.

With their weekend events canceled, the Ole Miss soccer and volleyball teams will be raising disaster relief funds with a car wash Saturday from 2 to 6 p.m. at Danver's Restaurant on West Jackson Ave. in Oxford. All proceeds will go to the victims of Tuesday's tragedy.

"Both teams wanted to do their part to aid in our country's healing," said Ole Miss Associate A.D./Senior Women's Administrator Lynnette Johnson. "It's always wonderful to see our student-athletes be so active in helping others."

Monday's soccer game will be the fifth meeting between Ole Miss and Memphis, with the Rebels holding a 3-0-1 edge. The last encounter was a 3-2 UM victory in Oxford.

Ole Miss enters the weekend with a 2-2 record and tied for 10th in the Central Region, according to Soccer Buzz. The Rebels won their third straight regular-season tournament last weekend, going 2-0 to take first place at the UAB Nike Classic. Ole Miss defeated the host Blazers in a 2-1 double-overtime affair Friday night, and followed up with a 2-0 shutout of TCU on Sunday.

Sophomore forward Tiffany Weiss, a native of Dallas, drove home the Rebels' first goal of the season on Friday, and was named to the All-Tournament team along with junior defender Kristin Chapman and freshman midfielder Lindley Beckman, both of whom picked up assists over the weekend.

Memphis (1-2-1) cruised to a 3-0 home victory over Tennessee-Martin Sunday for its first win of the 2001 campaign. Juniors Becca Amrozowicz and Alison Baker each have a pair of goals to lead the Lady Tigers in the young season.
