Florida’s soccer team was in the midst of a six-game winning streak before Ole Miss came to Gainesville and took down the Gators on Thursday. It was UF’s first loss since Sept. 8 when it fell to Central Florida in the sixth fixture of the season.

Ole Miss midfielder Haleigh Stackpole took a Rebels free kick and placed a perfectly curved cross to the skull of forward Molly Martin. Martin tapped it up and over Susi Espinoza, whose glove was just out of reach, and the ball softly rolled into the net. 

Losing four out of six games to begin the season made it seem like Florida’s soccer team would go the entire 2019-20 campaign unranked. But UF has caught fire as of late, and the United Soccer Coaches’ Poll has started to take notice.
