Georgia 3-0 Florida: Bulldogs' historic win

Georgia advanced to its second consecutive SEC Tournament championship game after defeating the No.7 Florida Gators, the top seed in this year's SEC Tournament, 3-0 Friday night at the Orange Beach Sportsplex.

Georgia (11-9-1) will face Tennessee (10-10-1) in the SEC Tournament title game Sunday afternoon. The winner will earn the conference's automatic berth into the 2008 NCAA Tournament.

The victory over the No. 7-ranked Gators is the highest-ranked team Georgia has ever defeated. It's also just the second win in Georgia's history over the Gators and the first victory against Florida in the SEC Tournament in six all-time meetings.

Georgia opened the scoring on a Florida own goal, when a Gator defender tried to clear a deflected shot by Carrier Patterson but kicked into her own net.

"Tonight was a very good college soccer game and both teams played well," said head coach Patrick Baker. "We got a bit of good fortune with the early own goal, but almost scored a second when Carrie drilled one of the crossbar a few minutes later."

Georgia extended its lead in the second half with a goal by Bailey Powell, her first of the season. In the 60th minute, Megan Tomlinson headed in a free kick from Kelli Corless to complete the scoring.

"Obviously Florida-Georgia is a big rivalry, so we are always pumped to beat Florida," Patterson said. "It says a lot about our team. We started off the year with such a hard schedule and I am proud of our team for how far we've come. It is a huge victory and we get a chance to play for an SEC Championship, which is why we came down here. To beat Florida in the semifinals is a huge statement. They are a top 10 team; I am really proud of my teammates tonight."
