Kelsey Dossey wasn’t Wonder Woman last night, but she sure played like it.
The play of Missouri’s senior goalkeeper, paired with two timely goals from the Tiger offense was enough able to get the Tigers their second SEC win of the season with a 2-1 final score off a last-minute goal over Ole Miss Thursday night.
This win for the Tigers improves their record to 5-6 overall. As for the Rebels, this was their second conference loss of the year, dropping their record to 8-5. This makes the Missouri/Ole Miss all-time series in favor of the Tigers by a margin of 3-2.
In total, there were three goals scored. The first goal was in favor of Missouri off a header from Julissa Cisneros in the 11th minute in the first half.
Missouri headed into the locker room with a 1-0 lead. Once the second half kicked off, Ella Frischknecht, from Ole Miss rifled it in at the 46th minute to tie it up.
After Ole Miss equalized, Missouri ran the fast-paced offense they’re known for, trying to get the edge.
They got just that. Within the final five minutes of regulation, a great cross sets up Julissa Cisneros for her second goal of the night and to give the Tigers a 2-1 lead. After the goal was scored, Kelsey Dossey was able to make a few crucial saves and keep the game from heading into overtime.
Mizzou only had one shot on goal and was successful on it in the first half. Ole Miss had nine shots on goal in the same amount of time.
Up next for Missouri is a road game at LSU on Sunday. LSU has an all-time record of 3-2 against Mizzou.
For Ole Miss, they go back to their home pitch to matchup vs. Arkansas on Sunday. The series against the Rebels and the Razorbacks are 2-1-1 in favor of Ole Miss.
