Both teams come into Sunday’s match off of Friday night losses. The Gators dropped their first match in the all-time 19-match series with Alabama by a 1-0 decision in Tuscaloosa. The Tide’s Katie Bourgeois scored the only goal of the match in the 38th minute. Florida recorded five shots on goal, including a pair in the final 15 minutes, but both the shots by juniors Caroline Triglia and Adriana Leon were tipped over the crossbar for a corner kick.

 

Vanderbilt lost 4-1 to Auburn Friday in Nashville. The Tigers scored one goal in the opening half and turned in three more in the second half to take the win. Vanderbilt’s Erin Myers scored off a free kick in the 90th minute to put the Commodores on the board. Freshman Cheyna Williams leads VU this season with six goals and six assists for 18 points.

 

Despite the loss, Florida remains in sole possession of the league lead with two matches remaining. The league’s newcomers – Texas A&M and Missouri – No, 2 and No. 3, respectively in the league standings, also lost Friday. The league’s top three remain the same after Friday’s play.

 

The Gators posted a 2-0 win over Vanderbilt off first-half goals when the two teams met in 2011 at the James G. Pressly Stadium. Both goals came off the build-up following a corner kick The centering pass by Maggie Rodgers clipped the heels of a VU defender and kicked to the feet of Tymrak at the top of the box. She took a touch forward and her shot clipped the inside of the near post and flew to the upper far post corner in the 23rd minute. The Gators were awarded their fourth corner kick of the half in the 36th minute. Senior Lindsay Thompson received the ball near the end line and sent it up the box where Havana Solaun was making a run after taking the corner kick. Solaun moved toward the goal but spied Holly King unmarked above the six-yard box. The pass caught King’s sliding right foot and scored at the far post.

 

The UF-VU match can be heard on ESPN 850/900, by simulcast on Cox Channel 946 (Gainesville/Ocala) or on www.GatorZone.com with Adam Schick calling the action.
