Ole Miss (1-0-1) got on the board first with a shot off the foot of junior Jenna Kemp early in the match.
Middle Tennessee State University (1-1) would knot the game at 1-1 before senior Channing Foster found the back of the net in the closing seconds before the half. That would give the Rebels a 2-1 advantage at the break.
Coming out of halftime, the Blue Raiders re-tied the at 2-2. At the 27-minute mark remaining in regulation, Foster found her second goal of the night that put the Rebels up 3-2.
Coach Matt Mott’s squad added their final score off the boot of senior Haleigh Stackpole just under the 15-minute remaining mark.
The Rebels finished the night by leading MTSU 24-9 on shots and 7-1 on corner kicks.
