The Ole Miss soccer team tied with the Mississippi State Bulldogs 1-1 on Thursday, which meant they got to keep the coveted Magnolia Cup. 

Ole Miss (6-2-2, 0-0-2 SEC) controlled the majority of possession and the Bulldogs (5-4-1, 0-1-1 SEC) opted to settle back defensively and attempt to strike on the counter. The two teams matched each other with 13 shots, though Ole Miss led with four on goal compared to just two for MSU.

Head Coach Matt Mott’s club went ahead in the contest in the 18-minute off the boot of Haleigh Stackpole as she found the net on the right side of the goal.

Mississippi State got on the board at the 35-minute mark when MaKayla Waldner blasted the ball past Ashley Orkus.

Following halftime, with about 20 minutes to play, Ole Miss began to put its foot on the gas and created a few scoring chances. Neither team was able to break through before the clock hit zeroes, extending the rivalry matchup into overtime.

Ole Miss returns to action on Sunday as they play host to the Auburn Tigers. First kick is slated for 2 p.m.
