Hogs fall in first minute of OT

FAYETTEVILLE – Less than one minute into overtime, Ole Miss scored a goal and ended Arkansas’ four-match unbeaten soccer streak with a 1-0 golden goal victory at Razorback Field on Sunday.

The Razorbacks had not allowed a goal in four matches, since a 2-1 loss at Auburn on Oct. 2, going 2-0-2 since that contest.

Neither team scored after 20 shots for Arkansas and 19 for Ole Miss through the 90 minutes of regulation, but Hannah Weatherly got a shot into the right corner from the left edge of the goal just 43 seconds into the first overtime period to end the contest.

Arkansas had played four overtime games this year prior to Sunday. The first four, all on the road, ended in 0-0, double-overtime ties.

Ole Miss, ranked No. 21 in the nation, improved to 10-3-2 overall and 4-1-2 in the Southeastern Conference. Arkansas fell to 8-4-4 overall and 2-4-2.

Both teams finished with 20 shots. Arkansas had an 11-9 advantage in shots on goal. The Rebels had three corner kicks for the game while the Razorbacks had none.

Allie Chandler had six shots with four on goal to lead the Razorbacks. Kelsey Allison had three with two on goal and Laurel Pastor three with one on goal.

Weatherly had four shots for Ole Miss with three on goal, including the game-winner.

Following Friday’s 1-0 win over Mississippi State, Arkansas entered Sunday’s match with a school-record four SEC shutouts, including a school-record 10 for the season.

The goal by the Rebels is just the ninth allowed by Arkansas this season.

In the first half, each team has several scoring opportunities. Arkansas had a 12-10 advantage in shots and a 7-5 advantage in shots on goal. Ole Miss had the only corner kick in the opening period.

This week, Arkansas travels to South Carolina for a 6 p.m. matchup with the No. 5 Gamecocks on Thursday.

The Razorbacks are back home on Sunday to face No. 11 Florida.
