GULF SHORES, Ala. – The Ole Miss soccer team will open the 2012 edition of the Southeastern Conference Tournament on Monday evening when the ninth-seeded Rebels (12-8) take on the eighth-seeded LSU Tigers (9-7-4) at 6:30 p.m. at the Orange Beach Sports Complex.

It is the first trip to the tournament for the Rebels in the Matt Mott era and first trip for Ole Miss since the 2009 season.

Ole Miss and LSU met 10 days ago with the Tigers picking up a 3-2 win in overtime.

“LSU is a difficult opponent we just played 10 days ago in a very even match,” said Ole Miss head coach Matthew Mott. “We will need to play well in all areas of the field. Our team is excited about the challenge ahead of us.”

The Rebels will be looking to a pair of juniors to help lead the team with forwards Mandy McCalla and Rafaelle Souza. The duo are the most prolific scoring threats in the conference this season with McCalla leading the SEC in goals (13) and points (32), while Souza is second in the league in goals (12) and points (32).

Anchoring the backfield for the Rebels is a back line that has seen a trio of freshmen in Maddie Friedmann, Jessica Hiskey and Samantha Sanders starting every match this season. Hiskey currently holds a streak of 1,367 consecutive minutes played for the Rebel defense.

Directing the action is sophomore Kelly McCormick who has been critical to the Rebels posting seven shutouts on the year. McCormick was twice named SEC Defensive Player of the Week after helping Ole Miss post four straight shutout wins and a stretch of 478 consecutive minutes without allowing a goal.

Fans can follow the action live on the internet via the SEC Digital Network and live stats. Both links are available at www.OleMissSports.com.
