BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (September 9, 2001) -- The Ole Miss Rebels (2-2) defeated the TCU women's soccer team (2-2) 2-0 Sunday morning at the UAB Nike Classic to finish 2-0 in the tournament. The Horned Frogs return to Fort Worth having finished with a 1-1 record in the tournament.

After 35 scoreless minutes, Mississippi's Karen Hall scored her first goal of the season from eight yards out on a slow-roller that snuck past TCU goalkeeper Shannon Wagner. Ole Miss added one more goal for insurance when Mary Katherine Ulmer blasted a 30-yard line drive past the outstretched Wagner in the 81st minute.

Ole Miss' shutout marked the second time this season that the Horned Frogs have failed to register a goal. TCU has also allowed the opposition to score two goals in three of their four games so far this year.

Ole Miss finished the game with 13 shots, five on goal, while TCU tallied seven shots with three on goal.

The Frogs travel to El Paso, Texas for their next match against UTEP. Game time is set for 3 p.m. on Wednesday, September 12.
