Alabama concluded its four-match road trip with a pair of tough losses this past weekend. The Crimson Tide will look to rebound as it plays four matches at home before closing the regular season out at Auburn. Alabama will host division rival Mississippi State on Friday before welcoming Missouri to Tuscaloosa on Sunday. Katie Bourgeois
still leads the Tide in scoring with 16 points on seven goals and two assists. Molly Atherton and Pia Rijsdijk closely follow with 14 points each. Atherton has six goals and two assists while Rijsdijk sports five goals and four assists. Theresa Diederich is also atop the stat sheet with 13 points on six goals and one assist. Alabama has outscored its opponents, 30-20 this season including an 8-5 advantage at home.


Arkansas downed Alabama at home on Sunday, 3-1, for its first win over the Crimson Tide since 2006. Over the last three weeks, the Razorbacks are 3-2-1 with 10 goals scored. One of the losses was Friday's 3-2 setback to Vanderbilt in double-overtime. Allie Chandler scored goals in both games, including the game-winner against Alabama. For the week, she had eight shots with six on goal for a .750 percentage. She is now fifth on Arkansas' all-time chart with six career game-winners. Arkansas’ six wins this year are the most since 2009 (8-7-4). The 3-4-1 mark in the SEC gives the Razorbacks their most league wins since the 2008 squad was 4-7-0. The Razorbacks
close their home season this week, entertaining Texas A&M and Auburn.


Auburn has positioned itself to make a 12th straight SEC Tournament as it currently sits second in the SEC West and fifth overall after going 1-1-0 over the past week. Amy Howard made eight saves over the weekend to break into the SEC’s Top 10 for career saves as she now sits tied for ninth with 326. With the shutout of Mississippi State Howard
(19 shutouts) is now three behind Allison Whitworth in the school record books for second on the list. Ana Cate scored her first goal of the season against MSU after finishing with nine last season. She now has 15 for her career, which places her in a five-way tie for 10th in the Auburn record books. Auburn has just one home match remaining as it
heads on the road for four straight.


Florida earned a pair of road wins last weekend, beginning with a 2-0 victory at LSU. Erika Tymrak turned in the game-winning goal in the 74th minute. Havana Solaun finished the scoring with just 36 ticks left in the match. It was Solaun’s third goal of the last five matches. Sunday, Florida claimed a 2-1 upset win at No. 5 Texas A&M. It
was Florida’s 100th road win in the 18-year history of the program, as the Gators now own a 100-40-13 record in road contests. Solaun now leads the Gators with five goals, followed by McKenzie Barney and Holly King with four goals each. Florida returns home to play host to its final regular-season home action when Missouri and Mississippi State come to Gainesville.


Georgia earned a 2-0 win at Ole Miss Friday night before falling 1-0 to South Carolina on Sunday. The Bulldogs got goals from Jenna Owens and Madeline Barker on Friday night to hand the Rebels just their second home loss of the season, keeping the SEC's leaders in points, goals, and assists off the scoreboard for just the third time this season. On Sunday Georgia allowed a goal to the Gamecocks in the 21st minute and couldn't find the equalizer, with the Bulldogs falling to 6-7-2 (2-4-2) on the year. Georgia returns home for its final weekend at the UGA Soccer Stadium in 2012, welcoming Auburn and Kentucky to Athens this coming Friday and Sunday, respectively. Sunday will serve as Senior Day for the program's four seniors.


Kentucky was swept over the weekend for the first time since the 2010 season as the Wildcats fell on the road to No. 16 Missouri in overtime (2-1), and Ole Miss (2-0). Arin Gilliland scored her fourth goal of the season, which now sits in second on the team for most goals scored. The overtime game Friday night was UK’s fourth straight, which now stands as a new program record. The loss Friday was UK’s first to a top-25 team all season long, as the Wildcats were 2-0-1 previously against ranked teams. Kentucky will hit the road for the second-consecutive weekend of action on Friday night, traveling to Tennessee before rounding out the weekend in Athens, Ga., for a matchup against the Bulldogs.


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

The Rebels fell to Georgia on Friday night before picking up a shutout victory over the Kentucky Wildcats on Sunday. The win over the Wildcats marked the fifth straight for the Rebels over Kentucky and evened the all-time series at 9-9-1. Sara Coleman picked up her second goal of the season, drilling the game-winner in the first half to
put the Rebels on the board. Olivia Harrison then notched her sixth goal of the season in the second half for the 2-0 margin of victory. Coleman’s goal in the first half came off a pass from Rafaelle Souza who now leads the SEC in points with 25. Ole Miss returns to the road this weekend with matches at Vanderbilt and South Carolina.

Mississippi State

Mississippi State opened a four-match road trip with treks to Auburn and No. 16 Missouri. The Dawgs had a tough go of it, falling in both matches by identical 2-0 scores. MSU has now suffered seven-straight setbacks. The Bulldogs will look to bounce back on the road next weekend, traveling to Alabama and Florida. MSU will be playing its
final road games of the season with next weekend's treks to Tuscaloosa and Gainesville. Mississippi State received solid play in goal from senior Skylar Rosson, as she stopped a season-high 12 shots at Auburn and 10 more in State's inaugural SEC battle against Missouri.


Missouri improved to 12-2 overall and 7-1 in SEC play with a pair of wins over Kentucky (2-1 in OT) and Mississippi State (2-0) last eekend. The Tigers are off to their best start in program history with the 12-2 record. The team’s previous best record through 14 games into the season was 11-3, which was accomplished by the 1999 squad. Missouri now has four players with at least 11 points on the season: Sophomore Abi Raymer (14), senior Taiwo Adeshigbin (13), junior Alyssa Diggs (12) and senior Haley Krentz (11). Raymber, Adeshigbin and Diggs all lead the team with six goals apiece. Missouri travels to face Florida on Friday, Oct. 12 at 7 p.m. ET (6 p.m. CT) and Alabama on Sunday, Oct. 14 at Noon CT.

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.


Tennessee posted a pair of 1-0 road wins at South Carolina (the 2011 SEC regular season champ) and at Auburn (the 2011 SEC Tournament champ). Tennessee was originally picked to finish 12th in a preseason SEC coaches poll. The Lady Vols currently stand fourth in the league.

Texas A&M

The five goals Texas A&M scored against Alabama was the most against a league opponent since scoring a 5-1 win against Texas at the Big 12 Championship on Nov. 6, 2009 and the most goals in a league game since posting a 5-0 victory over Oklahoma on October 5, 2008. Texas A&M’s 12-2-1 start is the best since the 2008 season, when the Aggies started with the identical 12-2-1 record. Jordan Day has nine
shutouts on the season, equaling her mark from 2011. One more save will give Day the Texas A&M single-season record with 10. 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 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.
