Scoring barrage gives No. 6 Florida win against Arkansas

  Sunday's win against Arkansas kept No. 6 Florida atop the SEC standings with six league games remaining.

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. -- Three goals from three different Gators gave Florida a 3-1 win Sunday at Arkansas on a perfect fall day at Razorback field.

Sunday’s match featured the final two Southeastern Conference teams with unbeaten records, as the Gators entered with a 4-0 SEC record and the Razorbacks were 2-0-2 in league play. Sunday’s win keeps the Gators at the top of the SEC standings with six matches remaining in their league schedule.

A diving header from sophomore Liz Slattery put the Gators on the board in the 23rd minute. After taking a corner kick, Annie Speese moved to the top corner of the 18-yard box. Havana Solaun sent the ball to Speese and she sent a bended ball to the middle of the box where Slattery just beat her defender to score her second goal of the season.

The second goal of the weekend from Savannah Jordan gave the Gators a 2-0 halftime lead. Tessa Andujar crossed the ball from the endline to the middle of the box. Jillian Graff sent the ball forward where Jordan caught it off the bounce with her left foot to put it in from six yards.

The Razorbacks cut the lead to a single goal in the 62nd minute when Arkansas’ season goals leader Ashleigh Ellenwood put in the ball off the scrum following an Arkansas free kick.

The first goal of the season for Andujar pushed Florida’s lead back out to a pair of goals in the 81st minute. She ran down the ball outside the Razorback box, made a few moves to create some room between her and the defender to bring the ball into the box and then sent a left-footed shot to the far upper corner.
