Things have not started too hot for the Florida Gator soccer team. They have a 2-6 record to start the season and are 0-1 in division play.
They have the opportunity to turn things around, especially in the SEC as they travel to Oxford Mississippi to take on Ole Miss.
Florida is coming off a tough loss at home to Tennessee, but head coach Samantha Bohon loved her team’s performance in the game and gave a ton of credit to the Volunteer goalie, Lindsey Romig.
She said that she felt that her team didn’t lose this game, but Bohon won it for the Volunteers.
Ole Miss comes into this game 7-0-2 and comes off a big 2-1 victory against Kentucky.
Ole Miss averages over two goals a game while keeping their opponent under one.
Marykate Mcguire leads the way as she has five goals this season, followed by Mo O’Conner with four. With the Gators’ defense allowing over two goals a game, these would be two ladies to look out four on Thursday.
Florida’s struggles continue as they have lost three in a row to Tennessee, East Carolina and Florida State. They have been outscored 9-2 in that stretch.
The Gators have a long and important stretch of SEC games, and if they look to make a push into the postseason, it is important for them to win over half of these games.
Florida is the only team in the SEC currently with a losing record.
