UWF falls to Lee in penalty kicks in GSC Semifinal

first_img Full Schedule Roster Next Game: Preview Live Stats Watch Live vs. Nova Southeastern 11/13/2015 – 3:00 p.m. ET November 6, 2015 BOX SCORE FLORENCE, Ala. – The University of West Florida women’s soccer team fell 4-3 in penalty kicks against Lee in Friday night’s Gulf South Conference Tournament semifinal match. Following the match, UWF’s record stands at 14-4-1 on the season. “Lee’s a very good team,” head coach Joe Bartlinski said. “Our kids were courageous. We went down a couple times in the match, and we battled back, so I’m very proud of the effort our players put in today. Hopefully, it’s enough to get into the next tournament, and if we advance, our youngsters will be prepared.” Like the first time these teams met this year, momentum shifted back and forth often during the match. Lee got the scoring started in the 21st minute, and Alisa Festagallo (Fort Pierce, Fla./Lincoln Park Academy) netted her third goal of the season just 11 minutes later. In the 39th minute, Lee took a 2-1 lead off a corner kick from McKenzie Bricker. Bri Young (Navarre, Fla./Navarre HS) found the net with a thru ball from Daryl Bell (Sarasota, Fla./Southeast HS), which tied the match at 2-2 going into halftime. Shortly after the second half began, Lee jumped ahead and held the lead for much of the half. Momentum shifted yet again when Georgia Bailey (St. Catherine, Jamaica/St. Jago HS) knocked a Kaley Ward corner kick into the net with just six seconds remaining in regulation. “I really felt that our defenders did great,” Bartlinski said. “Although Lee scored some goals, they were all on set pieces and I felt our collective defense did very well. If we can sort out some small issues, we should do very well.” The teams tied with 12 shots apiece at the end of regulation, and Lee added just two more in the two 10-minute overtime periods. The Argos and Flames held each other scoreless in overtime and advanced into penalty kicks. The teams were also evenly matched in corner kicks, as they tied 3-3 after the first five attempts. Lee capitalized on the sixth kicker to take the win. Because UWF ranked fourth in the latest NCAA South Region rankings, the Argos remain in contention for an NCAA Tournament bid. The NCAA Division II Women’s Soccer Selection Show will take place Monday at 5:30 p.m. CT on, when UWF will learn about its playoff hopes. For information on all UWF athletics, visit #ARGOS# — –Print Friendly Versionlast_img read more

Ole Miss QB Wallace faces defining moment in Egg Bowl

Or is he just another in a long line of quarterbacks that seem to only be marking the time between Mannings?If Wallace can play on a sprained ankle Saturday (2:30 p.m., CBS) and lead No. 18 Ole Miss (8-3, 4-3 SEC) to a win against No. 4 Mississippi State (10-1, 6-1), it’s a hero moment. The embattled star fighting off injury to wreck the rival’s season? They tell stories of that stuff for decades in the Grove.“Any game you play against Mississippi State is a big one,” said Matt Hinton, college football staff writer for “Especially this one, where they have a chance to ruin the best season Mississippi State has had. That may be something that may make him stick in peoples’ minds for a long time.”Egg Bowl 2014: Rebels take their best shot on #StateHateWeekBut if Wallace is not able to do it — whether because of injury or ineffectiveness — and Ole Miss loses to Mississippi State for the second straight season and the fifth time in six years, Wallace will likely be remembered mostly for the disappointments.That’s not totally fair — Wallace set the school’s total offense record (10,090 and counting) last week, besting Eli Manning. He’s thrown or run for 80 touchdowns during his career, six shy of Manning, and is superior in completion percentage (63.9 to 60.8), passing efficiency (143.1 to 137.7) and 300-yard passing games (11 to 10).Some of that is due to the difference in football: Manning ran an old school offense at Ole Miss with a fullback and only two wide receivers, while Wallace operates in a no-huddle offense that almost always has three or four receiving targets available. The speed of coach Hugh Freeze’s offense means that Wallace will likely end up running close to 200 more plays than Manning during his career. Manning also did not throw to a single NFL wide receiver, while Wallace has had talents like Donte Moncrief and Laquon Treadwell at his disposal.So perhaps the argument for Wallace is in the big picture: Ole Miss (8-3, 4-3 SEC) is not going to a third-straight bowl game without him as the quarterback the last three seasons. Freeze said exactly that in August, and nothing that has happened since has changed his mind.“You hope people focus on all the good,” Freeze said. “He’s led us to three consecutive bowl games. He’s been very, very relevant in returning relevancy to this program in the conference and nationally. He’s now become the all-time total offense owner of that record, passing the great Eli Manning.“Those are some great things. I think in time people will recognize that and he’ll be remembered for those things. Hopefully he can add another two (games) to it, win another bowl and get the Egg home.”If Ole Miss beats Mississippi State then Wallace would be the first quarterback since Manning to beat Mississippi State twice (2002-03). If the Rebels lose, then Wallace would be the first since Romaro Miller (1998-99) to lose to the Bulldogs twice. That either one goes that far back speaks to the general inconsistency of the position at Ole Miss since Manning, which Wallace has stabilized by holding onto the job since his arrival as a record-setting JUCO quarterback in 2012.Wallace’s first Egg Bowl was maybe the best from an Ole Miss quarterback in school history: 15-of-22 passing for 294 yards and a game-record five touchdowns. His second was one of the worst: 26-of-40 for 182 yards with four total turnovers (three interceptions, one game-ending fumble in overtime).Such a wild swing has marred Wallace’s time at Ole Miss. The quarterback who could lead a stunning fourth-quarter comeback against Alabama with an absolutely brilliant passing display could be the same guy who threw a game-ending interception to lose to LSU or turned the ball over four times last week in a humiliating loss at Arkansas. The school’s career leader in total offense also has 12 multi-interception games in his career. Trying to explain that juxtaposition led to the “Good Bo, Bad Bo” narrative that Wallace so publicly bristled at.“That thing’s the most annoying thing I’ve ever heard,” Wallace said after the Alabama win on Oct. 4. “I also feel like I’m the only quarterback in the nation that throws interceptions.”Said Hinton: “One of the comparisons I read is Tony Romo. I think that’s what his reputation is. A good quarterback that made a lot of good plays, but also a lot of mistakes and a lot of crucial mistakes.”Wallace was not made available to reporters after the Arkansas loss or again this week; it was Freeze’s decision, and jibes with his three-year policy on injured players. It’s also the longest Wallace has gone without talking to the media during his Rebel career.“With all the ups and all the downs, he hasn’t wavered at all,” tight end Evan Engram said. “He’s definitely keeping it straight. We believe in him 100 percent, we’re behind him and we know he’s going to show up.”Wallace will end up playing 39 games in his Ole Miss career. To judge him based on any single one is wrong. But the nature of his career has led up to this point, where rightly or wrongly it feels like his ultimate legacy will be determined during his last regular season game.At this point it’s up to him to write that final chapter.Contact Hugh Kellenberger at (601) 961-7291 or [email protected] Follow @HKellenbergerCL on Twitter.last_img read more
