The Ole Miss Rebels will host Vanderbilt at 7 p.m. Friday night at the Ole Miss Soccer Stadium.
Oct. 10, 2013
OXFORD, Miss. – Fresh off a road win over a top-20 team last weekend, the Ole Miss soccer team returns home for a single game this weekend when the Rebels (10-3-1, 3-2- 0 SEC) host the Vanderbilt Commodores (3-4-3, 0-4-1 SEC).
The contest between the Rebels and Commodores is set for a 7 p.m. kick. Members of the Ole Miss Athletics Foundation are invited to participate in a Member Appreciation tailgate with a pregame speech from head coach Matthew Mott. The tailgate will begin at 6 p.m. at the Ole Miss Soccer Stadium and members are asked to RSVP with Matt McLaughlin at firstname.lastname@example.org or calling 662-915-1750.
“Vanderbilt comes in with a really potent attack they have three of the best forwards of the league so we will need to be prepared for that,” Mott said. “But we are excited to be home for the next couple of weeks and play in front of our home crowd.”
Ole Miss enters this weekend’s contest after picking up a 3-1 win over No. 20 Georgia in the squad’s last outing. In that game, the seniors stepped up big with Rafaelle Souza tallying two goals, while Erin Emerson found Mandy McCalla on a corner kick to deliver the game-winning goal.
With the two goals on Sunday, Souza now has 13 for the season to tie her season total from a year ago and leads the Southeastern Conference in goals and points. She is also tied for the national lead in points and is third in goals. McCalla now has 10 goals on the season, second most on the team.
The Rebels lead the Southeastern Conference offensively, pacing the league in goals, points and goals per game. Ole Miss will look to continue that performance this weekend against a Vanderbilt team with a potent front line that hasn’t quite translated into the win column for the Commodores.
Cheyna Williams leads the front line attack for the Commodores with 10 goals this season on a team-leading 64 shots through the first 10 contests. Williams is one of nine different Vanderbilt players to find the back of the net this season and is part of an offense with nine different players tallying assists as the Commodores pass the ball around.
Ole Miss and Vanderbilt have played a pair of common foes this year with the Rebels posting wins over UAB and Memphis, while the Commodores fell to the Blazers and picked up a 2-1 win over the Tigers. The two teams have not played a common foe in conference play at this point.
