Lady Vols storm back from 3-0 down to win

[TENNESSEE-MISSISSIPPI] The 1,215 fans on hand at Regal Soccer Stadium Friday night had never seen anything like it. No. 15 Tennessee fell behind Mississippi, 3-0, on a hat trick by Dylan Jordan in the first 32 minutes, but the Lady Vols stormed back to win, 4-3, in overtime.

Chelsea Hatcher, who set a school record with 14 shots during the contest, completed the comeback just 93 seconds into the initial overtime period when she scored with a shot from just inside the right edge of the 18-yard box.

The Lady Vols looked finished when Jordan, a Tennessee native, put Ole Miss ahead with goals in the 13th, 31st and 32nd minutes, but they fought back with goals by Amy Harrison in the 59th minute, Emily Dowd two minutes later and the team-leading 10th goal of 2011 from sophomore forward Caroline Brown in the 80th minute.
Tennessee out-shot the Rebels by a 30-8 margin.

“I want to credit Ole Miss,” Lady Vol coach Angela Kelly said.  “They had six shots in the first half, three goals and Dylan Jordan with the hat trick.  Tennessee kids always play so well at Regal Stadium.  More power to them, and I’m glad that this stadium brings out the best in all of them.  I’m really proud of the way our team executed.  In order to have any sort of comeback in a limited amount of time, it has to be methodical and it has to be well executed.  You actually beat pressure through possession.  The team understands that, and they now completely understand that there’s never too little time to score a goal.”
