The Southeastern Conference announced Monday that Gator freshman forward Kouri Peace was nominated as the Freshman of the Week.

Florida vs. Auburn

After the Gators conceded the first goal of the match against Auburn on Friday, Peace’s goal toward the end of the first half brought Florida back into the game. They’d go on to win it 2-1 via an early second-half goal from Parker Roberts.

Peace’s goal against Auburn marked her third in the Orange & Blue. She scored her second goal against Kentucky last Sunday and her first against Florida Gulf Coast in mid-September.

There was a five-match goals and assists drought for Peace between her first and second goals. After finally bagging her second against Kentucky, she was relieved.

“I kind of want to score every game,” said Peace. “That’s the goal. That’s what I’m supposed to be doing.”

Looking Forward

With Friday’s win over the Tigers, Florida is now 10-5 overall with a 6-1 record in SEC play. The Gators are tied for first in the conference with Arkansas who also sit at 6-1.

Florida’s next game comes against the Tennessee Volunteers this Thursday in Knoxville. After that, the Gators return home to face South Carolina on Sunday before finishing up regular-season play at Georgia on Halloween.
