Alabama dropped its fourth straight decision as it was edged by No. 14 Missouri, 2-
1 on Sunday. The loss moves the Crimson Tide’s record to 7-7-2 overall and 2-6-2 in
Southeastern Conference play. Alabama will close out its regular season home schedule
as it will face nationally ranked Florida on Friday night and South Carolina on
Sunday for the Tuscaloosa Toyota Power of Pink match. Sophomore Pia Rijsdijk leads
Alabama with 19 points on seven goals and five assists. The 19 points are the most
scored in a season by a Tide player since 2005. Rijsdijk ranks second in the conference
during league play with 12 points on four goals and four assists. Alabama will be
looking to finish .500 or better in three straight seasons since 2001-03.

Arkansas split its two games last week, falling at home to No. 9 Texas A&M, 3-1, and
shutting out Auburn, 1-0. The game against A&M was the fifth of the season for the
Razorbacks against a ranked opponent, in addition to the game at Tennessee when
UT was No. 18 in the RPI ratings, but not ranked. The win over Auburn is the first for
Arkansas against the Tigers since 2000. Kelly Roliard had a career-high seven saves
in the win. The Auburn game was also Senior Day. Two Razorback seniors, Andrea
Carlson and Allie Chandler, played their final home game at Razorback Field.
Arkansas closes the regular season on the road, at Missouri and Mississippi State this
week, and at LSU the following week. The MSU game is being televised by ESPNU.

Auburn went 1-1-0 over the weekend, playing in a pair of 1-0 matches. Auburn opened
the weekend by winning at Georgia in what was the 11th one-goal game in the last 14
meetings, with two of the other results being ties. Tatiana Coleman netted the lone goal,
giving her a team-best five goals on the season and seven career game-winners. Auburn
then traveled to Fayetteville and lost to Arkansas for the first time since the 2000 season
despite dominating the match statistically. Amy Howard made nine saves over the weekend
to give her 78 on the season and 335 for her career. She now stands second in
Auburn history and sixth in SEC history in career saves. Howard also posted the 20th
shutout of her career. Auburn needs one win in its last three matches to clinch a SEC
Tournament berth. Auburn travels to Vanderbilt and Kentucky this weekend.

Florida finished 2012 home play with a pair of wins, beginning with a 2-1 win versus
No. 14 Missouri. The Tigers scored off a corner kick to give MU a 1-0 halftime lead.
Annie Speese tied the match in the 53rd minute and then Jo Dragotta blasted in Adriana
Leon’s corner kick from seven yard in the 86th minute to give UF the final 2-1
margin. It was Senior Day Sunday and Florida’s 2012 class provided all the scoring
in a 4-1 win over Mississippi State. McKenzie Barney, Dragotta, Erika Tymrak and
Dragotta again reached the back of the net against the Bulldogs. Florida finishes regular-
season action with three consecutive SEC road matches, beginning at Alabama
on Friday. UF finishes the weekend at Vanderbilt on Sunday.

Georgia dropped a pair of heartbreakers this weekend, each by 1-0 scores, to Auburn
and Kentucky in the final homestand of the 2012 season. The Bulldogs and Tigers on
Friday night played 84 minutes of scoreless soccer before AU broke through with six
to play and held on for the game-winner. On Sunday Georgia suffered the opposite
fate as Kentucky scored just 6 minutes in and the teams would then play the rest of
the match scoreless despite Georgia ending up in shots, 21-8. Georgia will hit the
road for the final three games of the regular season, first heading to meet Mississippi
State this coming Friday night at 8 p.m. ET.

Kentucky completed its first-ever SEC-weekend road sweep under head coach Jon
Lipsitz, collecting 1-0 win’s over Tennessee and Georgia. Kayla King recorded backto-
back shutouts for the first time in her career, dropping her season GAA to a miniscule
.833. The Louisville, Ky., native had a career high 10 saves on Sunday in Athens
and kept a clean sheet vs. Tennessee Friday night as the Wildcats picked up a crucial
six points. King fended off 36 shots over the two games. Arin Gilliland scored the
game-winning goal vs. Georgia, scoring her fifth goal of the season, adding to her
team lead of 15 points on the season. In addition, the Lexington, Ky., native tallied
the assist in the game-winning goal to Kelli Hubly in the win over Tennessee.

LSU earned its first home win of the season with a 2-0 shutout of Houston on Sunday.
Leading the way were freshmen Heather Magee and Jade Kovacevic as each scored
their first career goals in the victory. Kovacevic saw her first action with the Tigers on
Sunday after competing with the Under-20 Canadian Women’s National Team.
Megan Kinneman only needed to make one save to earn her second shutout of the
season and post her eighth career clean sheet. The Tigers return to action on as they
play host to Stephen F. Austin Tuesday. LSU will then wrap up the non-conference season
with matches against Florida International on Friday and Memphis on Monday.

Ole Miss
Ole Miss picked up the first road sweep in SEC play during the Matt Mott era this past
weekend with a pair of wins at Vanderbilt and South Carolina. The Rebels posted a
shutout victory over the Commodores on Friday for the team's seventh shutout win of
the season. Ole Miss then defeated South Carolina 2-1 on Sunday to complete the
road sweep. Freshman Jessica Hiskey scored her first collegiate goal in the win over
Vanderbilt. Freshman Samantha Sanders scored the game-winner for the Rebels on
Sunday, as she combined with Rafaelle Souza in netting goals. Ole Miss has now had
12 different players score goals this season. Ole Miss will close out the home portion
of its regular-season schedule this weekend with contests against LSU and Tennessee.

Mississippi State
Mississippi State wrapped the 2012 road slate with a split weekend. The Bulldogs
began the road trip with a thrilling 3-2, come-from-behind win at Alabama. State
wrapped the road slate with a tough 4-1 setback at No. 12 Florida. Honeye Heydari
had a stellar weekend for the Bulldogs, compiling her first SEC assist Friday night before
netting the first conference goal of her career on Sunday. Heydari scored her sixth
goal of the season and notched her fifth assist for 17 points, the 10th-most in singleseason
history. In Friday's victory, the Bulldogs rallied with three goals in the final 15
minutes of regulation. Halee Heltsley leveled the match and then Elisabeth Sullivan
scored the Dawgs' final two goals for her third multiple-goal match of the season.

Missouri improved to 13-3 overall and 8-2 in SEC play with a 2-1 victory over Alabama
and a 2-1 loss at Florida last weekend. The Tigers’ 13 wins are tied as the thirdmost
in program history. The 2001, 2007 and 2008 squads also posted 13 victories.
Missouri now has four players with at least 11 points on the season: Senior Taiwo
Adeshigbin and junior Alyssa Diggs each have 15 points, while sophomore Abi
Raymer has 14 and senior Haley Krentz has 11. Missouri hosts Arkansas on Friday,
Oct. 19 at 6:30 p.m. and LSU on Sunday, Oct. 21 at 1 p.m.

South Carolina
South Carolina split at home with a 1-0 loss to Tennessee followed by a 1-0 victory
against Georgia. Gabrielle Gilbert scored the game-winning goal against the Bulldogs
Sunday to give South Carolina it's first SEC victory of the season and the team's first
regular season victory over Georgia since 2006. Sabrina D'Angelo earned her first
conference shutout of the year with five saves, and the Gamecock backline limited
Georgia and Tennessee to a combined nine shots on goal on the weekend. The Gamecocks
remain home with LSU and Ole Miss visiting Stone Stadium this weekend.

UT won its fifth overtime match of the year. On the season Tennessee is 3-0-2 when
the contest goes to overtime.

Texas A&M
Texas A&M’s 11 shutouts on the season is one shy of the school record of 12 set in
2006. Texas A&M’s 14-2-1 start is the best since the 2007 season, when the Aggies
started with the identical 14-2-1 record. Jordan Day set the school’s single-season
record for shutouts with her 10th against Vanderbilt. The Aggies have scored on a set
piece at least once in 10 conference game this season with four corner kicks, nine free
kicks and one penalty kick. (14 set piece goals). A&M had a 12-game unbeaten string
snapped (11-0-1). It will go down in the books as the second longest string in school
history behind a 16-game (15-0-1) unbeaten string in 2002. The Aggies have had 17
different players start on the season, including 16 different starters in league play.

The Commodores return three of their top four goal scorers from last season, including
senior Dana Schwartz and sophomores Gena Inbusch and Cherrelle Jarrett. Vanderbilt
is looking to make it back to the SEC Tournament after missing out last season for the
first time since 2008. The squad will play nine of its first 11 games this season away
from the Vanderbilt Soccer Complex. Derek Greene enters his second season as Vanderbilt's
head coach--his first following a full year of offseason training.
