OXFORD, Miss. The Ole Miss soccer team will play four of its final five regular-season games at home starting with a pair of game this weekend against No. 11 Florida and South Carolina.

Ole Miss (5-8-1, 1-5 SEC) will host the 11th-ranked Gators (12-3, 5-1 SEC) on Friday night at 7 p.m. and will take on the Gamecocks (10-5, 5-2 SEC) Sunday afternoon at 1 p.m. 

“It will be a big challenge for us with two of the top teams in the league at home this weekend,” head coach Matt Mott said.  “We are looking forward to a huge crowd Friday night and our Pink Game on Sunday.”

The first 300 fans to Friday’s game will receive a free replica t-shirt jersey.  Sunday’s game is “Ole Miss Soccer Kickin’ Cancer” where the Rebels have teamed with Baptist Hospital North Mississippi for a breast cancer awareness game.  Fans are encouraged to wear pink and those in pink at the game will get a prize. The team will also be wearing pink jerseys that fans can purchase in a silent auction with proceeds going to Baptist’s Breast Cancer Center. 

As a team in SEC stats, the Rebels are tied for fourth in goals (30), fourth in saves (73), tied for fifth in shutouts (5) and seventh in points (81).

Individually, Rafaelle Souza is fifth in points (25), fifth in goals (9), tied for third in assists (7), tied for seventh in shots (46) and tied for third in game-winning goals (4). Goalkeeper Alley Ronaldi is 10th in save percentage (.759) and is tied for ninth in shutouts (2).  Fellow goalkeeper Kelly McCormick is 10th in saves (31).

In the national stats, Souza is 20th in assists per game (0.54), 25th in points per game (1.92) and 40th in goals per game (0.692).

Senior Dylan Jordan recorded her first career hat trick with her three-goal performance in Ole Miss’ 4-3 overtime loss at No. 20 Tennessee Friday night.  It was the first hat trick for a Rebel player since Alix Hildal scored three goals in Ole Miss’ 3-2 win at Vanderbilt on October 24, 2010. 

Rafaelle Souza is on pace to break into Ole Miss’ season record book for points, assists and goals in a season.  To date, she has recorded 25 points, nine goals and seven assists.  She needs one points, one goal and one assist to break into Ole Miss’ top-10 record book for each category.   

Rafaelle Souza has recorded nine goals and seven assists this year to lead the team in scoring, assists and points (25).  She scored the team’s first five goals of the year and added her first career assist against Jackson State. Souza recorded at least one goal in each of her first three career games at Ole Miss and has recorded all four of Ole Miss’ game-winning goals this year.

Freshman Kelly McCormick recorded her first career solo shutout against Alabama in a 3-0 win.  This season, she has played in seven games, made 31 saves and has allowed 11 goals (1.11 GAA).   

Florida leads the all-time series between the two schools, 13-2-1.  The Gators won the last meeting between the two schools, 3-0, in Gainesville last season.  Ole Miss won the last meeting in Oxford, 3-2 (2OT), during the 2009 season.

This season, Florida (12-3, 5-1 SEC) is led by Erika Tymark (27 points) and Annie Speese (19 points).  As a team, the Gators have recorded 41 goals while allowing just 16 in 15 games.

Goalkeepers Taylor Burke and Brooke Chancey have combined for a 1.06 GAA and have posted a total of eight shutouts.   

South Carolina leads the all-time series, 7-3-2.  The Gamecocks won last season’s meeting 3-0 in Columbia.

South Carolina (10-5 overall, 5-2 SEC) is led by Kayla Grimsley (18 points), Danielle Au (13 points) and Kortney Rhoades (13 points).  As a team, the Gamecocks have outscored their opponents 28-12 this season.

Goalkeeper Sabrina D’Angelo has played in 13 games.  She has allowed 10 goals (0.80 GAA), made 47 saves and has recorded two shutouts.  

Ole Miss will host Vanderbilt on Thursday, October 20 at 7 p.m. followed by a game at Kentucky on Sunday, October 23 at Noon CT.
