Last Friday:

Goals from two Gator holding midfielders gave Florida a 3-0 win over No. 23 Kentucky Friday evening. The first of two connections between Havana Solaun and Lauren Smith resulted in a goal in the seventh minute. Solaun’s end line cross took a bounce in the box, where Lauren Smith took a touch and then put it in at the left corner with her right foot. Lauren Smith’s second goal came off a long, left-footed strike in the 56th minute. Solaun took a shot which kicked off the crossbar. The deflection was eventually controlled by Solaun just wide of the box. Her centering pass found Lauren Smith coming down the middle of the field. Lauren Smith registered her first collegiate multi-goal match with a 20-yard low, hard shot to the far post.

 

The Gators took a 2-0 lead three minutes before halftime when Lauren Silver spied Liz Slattery running down the middle of the field. Silver placed the ball about eight yard above the box where Slattery ran onto it, took a touch and then took a hard shot with her right foot which scored just inside the near post. It was Slattery’s second goal as a Gator.
