Freshman forward Parker Goins scores the lone goal of the match against the Mississippi State Bulldogs, giving the Hogs a 1-0 victory in their Southeastern Conference opener Sept. 15.

The Arkansas Razorback women’s soccer team won a close 1-0 match Sept. 15 against the Mississippi State Bulldogs in its Southeastern Conference opener.

The Razorbacks had a total of 15 shots, four saves and four corner kicks to the Bulldogs 13 shots, five saves and six corner kicks.

Freshman forward Parker Goins squeezed a goal past the Bulldogs goalkeeper Catalina Perez in one of the closing minutes of the match, from an assist by freshman midfielder Nayeli Perez, to seal the deal and end the Razorbacks’ two game losing streak.

Prior to this game, the Bulldogs were 6-0-1 and had their best start in school history.

The attendance for this game was 15,015 people.

“First off, big shout out to the fans, they were tremendous,” Razorback coach Colby Hale said. “Being at home in those last five minutes, they gave us a huge lift. You can credit Parker, Nayeli  and the fans with the goal. I thought they were big time tonight. That was something we had been talking about, putting together a full 90 minutes. We fought and battled in what was an SEC game. Mississippi State is a very good team, but I thought we were deserving of it tonight.”

The Razorbacks are now 5-4 and will face Oral Roberts University on Thursday at Razorback Field.
