SOUTH BEND, Ind. – Ole Miss played a tightly contested match with No. 8 Santa Clara, but came up short in a 3-1 loss on Sunday at the Inn at Saint Mary’s Soccer Classic.
The nationally ranked Broncos out-shot the Rebels by a slim 10-8 margin, and it took some nice saves by SC goalkeeper Bianca Henninger to keep Ole Miss from closing the two-goal gap.
“We played really well today and I’m proud of our girls for competing against a very good Santa Clara team,” said first-year head coach Matthew Mott. “The score is not an indicator of how close the game was. We were able to create some chances, and we just came up short in a great effort against a very talented squad. We got better as a team and a program today.”
Ole Miss returns to Oxford for matches against McNeese State on Friday and Memphis on Sunday.
