OXFORD, Miss. - The Ole Miss soccer team will host a pair of matches this weekend, playing Southern Miss on Friday at 7 p.m. and TCU on Sunday at 1 p.m.

The matches will also mark the last two non-conference games for the Rebels this year.

Ole Miss (2-4-1) is coming off a 1-1 weekend at home in which the team came-from-behind to beat McNeese State, 5-1, before falling to #20 Memphis, 2-1, on Sunday.

Southern Miss is 2-3-1 on the year and is coming off a double-overtime tie at Southeastern Louisiana, 1-1, and a 6-0 win over Jackson State.  The Golden Eagles are led offensively by Jordan Wagner who has recorded seven points (two goals, three assists), Jana Mason and Elisha Tarbell who have each recorded five points.  Keeper Hannah Vanderboegh has played in six games, allowed 10 goals (1.82 GAA) and has made 20 saves.  Ole Miss leads the all-time series 7-0.

TCU is 3-3-1 this season and is coming off a 4-0 loss against #14 Oklahoma State in its only game of the week.  The Horned Frogs will play at Memphis on Friday before taking on Ole Miss on Sunday.  TCU is led by Jordan Calhoun who has recorded seven points on three goals and one assist while three players have recorded six points each.  Keeper Kira Michelson-Bartlett has played in five games, allowed eight goals (1.82 GAA), and had made 18 saves.  Ole Miss leads the all-time series 1-0-1.  

McCalla Has Breakout Game
Freshman Mandy McCalla scored her first career goal against McNeese and ended the game with five points.  McCalla scored in the 52nd minute to tie the game and scored in the 77th minute to give Ole Miss a 4-1 lead.  She also recorded an assist on Dylan Jordan's game-winning goal in the 59th minute.  This season McCalla is second on the team in points (five) and is second on the team in goals (two). 

Heimann Scores First Career Goal
Sophomore Chelsea Heimann scored her first career goal against #20 Memphis.  She has played in four games this season and has recorded five shots.   

Heads Up 
Three of Ole Miss' five goals against McNeese State were scored on headers.  Mandy McCalla scored off a header on a corner kick and a long-range cross while Dylan Jordan scored on a header from the right side.     

Firing Off Shots
The Rebels fired off a season-high 36 shots against McNeese State.  The shot total is tied for fifth all-time in program history.  Mandy McCalla recorded nine shots in the game while Erin Emerson and Dylan Jordan each recorded five.

Corner Kick, Ole Miss
Ole Miss recorded a season-high 14 corner kicks against McNeese State.  The Rebels took five corners in the first half and nine in the second half.

Ranked Opponents
During its non-conference season, Ole Miss faced two nationally ranked opponents.  The Rebels played #8 Santa Clara in a tournament in South Bend, Ind., and fell to the Broncos 3-1.  Ole Miss also faced #20 Memphis and lost to the Tigers 2-1.

Sunday Promotion
Ole Miss' game on Sunday is Youth League Day. Kids are encouraged to wear their team jerseys and join the team in the field for the National Anthem.
