FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. — Arkansas soccer fell to Ole Miss 2-1 in another double overtime nail-biter Friday night at Razorback Field.
Ole Miss scored the winning goal as the final second ticked off the game clock in the second overtime period. With the loss, Arkansas is now 5-7-1 overall in the season, and 1-4-1 in SEC play. Ole Miss improved to 9-3-2 overall and 3-3-0 within the conference.
“On set pieces we were certainly dangerous but we have to play 90 minutes, or in this case, 110,” said Arkansas soccer head coach Colby Hale. “We have had a number of players step up lately and even had some come off the bench today. We got feisty. We will be a hungry team come Sunday and it is a game that we will have to go in and win.”
Junior midfielder Rachel Riggs scored her first goal of the year in the 64th minute to tie the game at 1-1. The score would remain tied until 109:59 when Ole Miss defender Maddie Friedmann’s shot found the back of the net.
The announced attendance of 1,506 was the fifth highest in Razorback Field history. In eight home contests, the Razorbacks have averaged 1,351 fans per game, the fifth highest average in the SEC.
The Razorbacks travel to Nashville, Tenn. on Sunday to face off against the Vanderbilt Commodores at 1 p.m. Central. The game will be shown live on SEC Network +.
