[SEC: Women] Savannah Jordan, the SEC Offensive Player of the Year and the SEC Freshman of the Year, scored her SEC-leading 21st goal of the season in the 24th minute to lead No. 11 Florida to a 1-0 win against Arkansas on Wednesday in the quarterfinals of the SEC Tournament at the Orange Beach (Ala.) SportsPlex. No. 20 Texas A&M, which shared the SEC title with Florida, also got all it could handle as junior Allie Bailey’s goal in the 17th minute had to hold up for  a 1-0 victory against Auburn.

“I think the win tonight was a big one because we knew it was going to be a challenge,” Florida coach Becky Burleigh said. “We knew Arkansas was going to play a system and a style that was radically different than what we did. I think our team handled that pretty well.”

Jordan took a pass from Havana Solaun and chipped it in from close range.

“Savannah has some great goal-scoring instincts and tonight was no different,” Burleigh said. “She paid the price for that goal. It was a pretty physical goal and she’s been willing to do that all year.”

Auburn was the lowest seed left in Orange Beach at No. 10.

“Obviously, we’re excited,” Texas A&M head coach G Guerrieri said. “A win is what we came here to do. Auburn played hard and really gave us a hard time trying to find a way to try to break them down. I thought their goalkeeper [Alicen Wright] was outstanding. She made some big saves and their defense saved several balls off the line.”

-- Four goals by four different players -- Danielle Au, Gabrielle Gilbert, Coryn Bajema and Daija Griffin -- propelled No. 18 South Carolina to a 4-0 win against Georgia.

-- No. 23 Ole Miss scored a goal in each half, one from Mandy McCalla and the other from Rafaelle Souza, and defeated Kentucky, 2-0.
