Ole Miss Soccer Hosts Georgia In SEC Home Opener Tonight

The Ole Miss Rebels soccer team plays host to SEC conference foe Georgia this evening at the Ole Miss Soccer Stadium. First kick is set for 7 p.m.

Earlier this week, head coach Matt Mott met with the media on Monday to discuss the UGA matchup and also spoke about the 1-0 loss to No. 7 Florida, the team’s first loss of the 2017 season. 

“We headed to Gainesville and played Florida as tough as we have played them since I have been the coach here,” Mott said. “We lost 1-0 in a really good match. We gave up a goal early and then really battled to try and equalize, had a couple good looks at it, but couldn’t find the goal. I’m happy with how the team played. I am not one for moral victories, but in that game, I think we grew a lot. We had seven of 15 players who played where it was their first SEC game.”
The Rebels come into the week with a 7-1-1 record on the season ahead of their conference home opener. 
“We have our SEC home opener Thursday night at 7 p.m. against Georgia, Mott said. “They are a good team, very organized, with very good athletes. I have a lot of respect for their coach and they will be a good team for us on Thursday night. They beat us at Georgia last year 3-0, in a game where they really dominated us, so we need to be ready for them.”
On Sunday, Ole Miss will travel to Arkansas to take on the Razorbacks at 4 p.m. on SEC Network.
