OXFORD, Miss. - The Ole Miss soccer team takes to the road again this weekend, playing its sixth road contest through the first nine matches, when the Rebels (6-1-1) open Southeastern Conference play at Arkansas on Friday night.

First kick for the Friday contest with the Razorbacks is set for 7 p.m. The Rebels will then return home for the final non-conference match of the regular season on Sunday afternoon when Ole Miss hosts UALR at 5 p.m. at the Ole Miss Soccer Stadium.

It will be Family Movie Night at the Ole Miss Soccer Stadium in the match against UALR with the Rebels partnering up with the Student Activities Association to show Monsters University at the stadium following the contest with the Trojans.

It will also be the Rebels' annual Kickin' Cancer night as a silent auction will be held for game-worn jerseys to help raise funds and awareness to fight ovarian cancer. The Rebels will be wearing a teal variation of their regular uniforms in honor of the event in partnership with Baptist Hospital in town.

When the Rebels take on Arkansas, Ole Miss will continue to rely on a balanced offensive attack with six players having scored goals this season and eight different players distributing the ball on those goals. Seniors Mandy McCalla and Rafaelle Souza pace the Rebel offense with seven goals each through the first eight matches, while Souza and sophomore Olivia Harrison top the team in assists with three each this year.

Defensively, the Rebels have been solid in limiting scoring, as the combination of junior goalkeeper Kelly McCormick and the Ole Miss back line have posted four shutouts this season and allowed only six goals. Of those six goals, two came on penalty kicks.

Arkansas (7-1-0) enters the Friday night contest coming off its first loss of the season in an overtime decision with TCU last weekend that knocked the Razorbacks out of the national rankings. Previously, Arkansas had been ranked 25th-nationally before the loss to the Horned Frogs.

UALR (3-4-0) will play at home against UAB on Friday afternoon before heading to Oxford on Sunday for the contest against the Rebels.

Admission to all games is free and fans can also gain points for the "5-of-10" promotion that allows soccer fans to win an Ole Miss Soccer scarf for attending five of the Rebels' 10 home matches this season.
