ORANGE BEACH, Ala. — The Missouri soccer team fell in the semifinals of the SEC Tournament 3-0 to top-seeded Florida. The Gators are ranked No. 10 nationally.

Florida did most of its damage in the 19th minute, when sophomore midfielder Havana Solaun scored right in front of the goal. Just 40 seconds later, the Gators added another goal, this time from senior forward Erika Tymrak. Senior Holly King scored the final goal of the match in the 58th minute.

The Tigers had 16 shots total, 13 in the second half, but only six were on goal and none of them found the back of the net. Missouri was given five yellow cards and a red card that resulted in coach Bryan Blitz's ejection in the 24th minute.

Eliminated from the SEC Tournament, Missouri will have to wait until 3:30 p.m. on Nov. 5 to see if they will be selected for the NCAA Tournament, which begins Nov. 9.
