The 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup is underway, and UF is represented by a current player and three former Gators. Forward and rising junior Deanne Rose, along with UF alum Adriana Leon, are representing the Canadian national team in Group E. Meanwhile in Group C, former Gators Lauren Silver and Havana Solaun are representing Jamaica.
With 24 teams representing six continents, women’s soccer’s premier tournament returns this week in France with the 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup.
Seven wins, 10 losses, and four ties.
Kaylan Marckese finally ran out of magic.
The Florida Gators’ sideline stormed onto the field when time ran out, cheering and shouting as subs greeted the players on the pitch. A Vanderbilt player sat defeated on the grass, weeping into her shirt as the Commodores’ SEC Tournament appearance came to an end Tuesday night.
Florida goalkeeper Kaylan Marckese looked Auburn forward Rocio Sanders in the eye like a boxer staring down her opponent at the weigh in. Sanders had to convert this shot to keep Auburn’s hopes in the SEC Tournament alive.
The Gators (6-9-3, 4-4-2 SEC) certainly seemed inspired by the pre-match ceremonies to honor their seniors when they came out in the first half. It was just the 10th minute when midfielder Briana Solis hit a screamer from 20 yards out for her fourth career goal, putting UF up 1-0 early.
It has been a long time since the Florida soccer team faced a Senior Day like this.
It’s been the same old song and dance for the Florida Gators soccer team.
UF’s ghost has returned to haunt it just in time for Halloween.
It appears the demise of UF’s scoreless streak has been greatly exaggerated.
The Volunteers didn’t take long to make their mark.
The only constant in the Gators’ offense has been inconsistency.
Maybe it was the long bus ride. Maybe it was the Mississippi State defense. Maybe it was the absence of two of its best players.
