Coming to the end of their SEC slate, Jon Lipsitz and the Kentucky women's soccer team traveled to Starkville, Miss., and picked up a big 2-0 win over Mississippi State. Senior Kelsey Hunyadi scored both the Wildcats' goals, marking the third multi-goal game of her career.

The victory was so crucial because of the race for the conference tournament going on in the SEC. Coming into the match, UK was seventh in the standings with MSU in eighth, meaning the Cats and Dogs were fighting for the final two spots in the tournament. The win moves UK to 5-4 in SEC play, tied with Tennessee in sixth and the Cats own a tiebreaker over the Lady Vols. 

Ole Miss and Vanderbilt, UK's final two opponents of the regular season, are currently tied for last place. Wins over both would give UK a 7-4 record in conference and could position the Cats to be seeded high in Orange Beach, Ala., the site of the SEC Tournament.

Sunday's game against Ole Miss is the final home date of the season for the Cats. UK will be holding Senior Day festivities honoring Hunyadi, Kiondra McGee and Jenna Goblirsch. Come out to the UK Soccer Complex for the 1 p.m. game to send off the seniors and see the Cats continue their charge for the post-season.
