Abby Florida and Arkansas were tied at one goal a piece 20 minutes into the second half of their first-round Southeastern Conference Tournament game when a certain junior by the name of Abby Wambach took over.

Really, really took over.

Wambach, the forward from Rochester, N.Y., scored a goal at 67:42 to give the Gators the lead.

Then she scored 99 seconds later, at 69:21, for a two-goal lead.

And just 23 seconds after that, Wambach hit the back of the net again, as Florida went on to defeat the Razorbacks 4-1.

Three goals in two minutes and two seconds.

The fastest trio of goals in UF history -- and all from the future UF Hall of Famer and two-time Olympic gold-medalist.
