Florida Gators Avenge Football Loss by Ousting Georgia Bulldogs From SEC Soccer Tourney

Some in Bulldog Nation favor moving the World’s Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party from Jacksonville, reasoning that the Florida Gators have an unfair advantage when playing the Georgia Bulldogs in a Sunshine State city that previously was home to a stadium known as the Gator Bowl. I disagree with that logic, but, if we’re going to apply it, let’s apply it to soccer, as well, and ask ourselves how fair it is for Georgia to have to play Florida in a place called Orange Beach. Yeah, it’s in Alabama, but still.

On Wednesday night, the Georgia women’s soccer team was eliminated from the SEC Tournament by Florida in a 2-0 quarterfinal loss. The setback dropped the Bulldogs to 1-7 in tourney play against the Gators, as well as marking the second straight season in which the Orange and Blue bounced the Red and Black from postseason play.

Though the shots were even at eight per side, Gator midfielder Tahani Annis scored both goals for the Floridians to drop the Athenians to 12-6-2. Georgia is now winless in four consecutive contests, and the Bulldogs will have to wait until November 7 to learn when and where they next will be in action. The 64-team NCAA Tournament field will be unveiled next Monday at 4:30 p.m. Eastern time.

The soccer loss to the hated Gators stings, but at least we own them in football.
