After the victory, Bethany Bunker, who scored a goal, said, “We came out hard and we fought and we fought until the end. We did it for Samantha Sanders who’s at home. Because we fought so hard, we put them out!”

Co-defensive player of the week Maddie Friedmann said, “I think everyone out on the field today put a huge defensive effort and we came out with a win!”

Following after the awesome victory against the Tigers, Ole Miss will face their next battle against Tennessee next Friday at 6 p.m.
