Chasing history against Alabama, Kelly repeats mistakes made against FSU

Ole Miss was intent on a three-peat against Alabama, but the Rebels’ strong start slowly fell apart as the second half wore on.

For many fans, the Rebels’ 48-43 loss Saturday bears a sickening resemblance to the season opener against Florida State. Like Ole Miss’ loss to the Seminoles, turnovers and big plays were a big factor in the late swoon.

Quarterback Chad Kelly did as much as he could for the Rebels, throwing for 421 yards and 3 touchdowns with an interception — becoming the first QB with multiple 300-yard games against Nick Saban’s Tide — but his brightest moments were marred by some costly mistakes.

As he did against Florida State, Kelly led the Ole Miss offense on a 75-yard touchdown drive to begin the game. He was 3-of-4 on the drive for 47 yards and demonstrated how efficiently the Rebels can look offensively when he is in control.

Ole Miss Football: Three Things We Learned from the Loss

The Rebels failed to take a third-straight victory from the Alabama Crimson Tide, here is what we learned from the loss.

The Ole Miss football team faced the Alabama Crimson Tide today in Oxford, MS and failed to take a third-straight win from the Tide. The Rebels took a lead over the Crimson Tide early in the game and squandered another golden opportunity.

Just like in the Florida State game, the Rebels took a 24-3 lead in the first half, allowed the opposing team to score late in the 2nd quarter, and then they lose the game in the second half.

The Rebels have proved that they can play with the big dogs like Alabama and Florida State, but have yet to show that they can defeat the powerhouses this season.

Second Half Scoring Lifts Rebels Over Tulsa

Ole Miss soccer got back in the win column in a big way Sunday night, closing out its non-conference slate with a 2-1 road win over Tulsa at Hurricane Stadium.

The Rebels (5-5) fought back from a halftime deficit overcoming a 1-0 Tulsa lead to score two unanswered early on in the second period. It marked the first time this season Ole Miss would come back from being down at half.

Tulsa (4-5-1), a program that won 13 games a year ago, took an early lead at the 9:53 mark in the first half (Reagan Whitlow goal) that would last for the remainder of the opening period. The Rebels finished the half with six shots for four on goal, while Tulsa had just the one shot on target at intermission.

While Ole Miss didn’t score in the opening 45 minutes, it sure put the pressure on including two shots off the foot of CeCe Kizer. The sophomore powered one from 15 yards out but high in the 31st minute, and went on to breakaway from a Tulsa defender and put herself in a 1-v-1 situation three minutes later with another shot on goal.

Mackenze Parma, who entered as a sub late in the half, posted one of the better shots of the night as her attempt drifted just wide left in the 36th.

After the break, the Rebels didn’t waste much time cranking up the offense in the 50th minute for their first score of the night. At the 50:08 mark, Gabby Little crossed into the box to Addie Forbus, who then headed it to Gretchen Harknett. From there, Harknett punched in the equalizer from 12 yards out, her third score of the season and 13th of her career, tying the contest at 1-1.

Exactly 10 minutes later, Forbus got possession, dribbled down field, beat two defenders and fired off a beautiful shot from 15 yards out that carried into the far left corner. The go-ahead goal was her third game-winner of the season, her eighth goal overall and 30th of her career, which now slots her in a three-way tie for sixth all-time in career goals.

Tulsa went on to post a shot on goal in the 69th, but a nice save by Ole Miss keeper Marnie Merritt kept it away. The Golden Hurricane had one last chance late in the match, but the Rebel defense held strong on a corner kick with 20 seconds to go.

Ole Miss finished the contest posting 10 of its 15 shots on target, while the backline and Merritt held Tulsa to just four shots on goal and nine overall. Merritt went on to fend off three shots as she’s now in sole possession of eighth-place on the all-time saves list.

Kizer was active offensively with six shots total, three of which were on target, while Forbus finished strong with four shots, all of which were on goal. Bella Fiorenzo posted three shots entering as a sub, while Harknett’s only one went in, and Parma’s one shot was saved.

The Rebels return home to the Ole Miss Soccer Stadium Thursday night for the Magnolia Cup against Mississippi State. The match is slated for a 6 p.m. start and will air nationally on SEC Network.
