The Auburn soccer team has just three regular season matches remaining, with two coming on the road this weekend. Auburn will face Vanderbilt at 7pm CT on Friday night at Nashville, Tenn., and then head to Lexington, Ky., for a 2:30pm ET kick in the bluegrass.

Auburn is 9-8-0, 5-5-0 SEC and sits in second place in the SEC West and tied for sixth overall in the league standings. With the SEC Tournament expanding to 10 teams this season, Auburn is looking to lock up a 12th consecutive bid to the league dance, which it can do with just one win in its last three matches. Auburn could still move up to finish as high as the fourth seed in the SEC Tournament, which beings on Monday, Oct. 29 at Orange Beach.

The win not only improved Auburn's record to 8-1-1, 2-0-0 SEC but it also extended the team's unbeaten streak to nine straight matches, two shy of the school record.

No. 22 Soccer Blows Past Kentucky, 4-1, In SEC Opener
Katy Frierson had three assists, Tatiana Coleman had two and Julie King scored the game-winning goal for the fourth time in her career as the No. 22 Auburn soccer team opened up Southeastern Conference play with a convincing 4-1 win over Kentucky at the Auburn Soccer Complex. The win ran Auburn's unbeaten streak to eight straight games and improved the team's record to 7-1-1, 1-0-0 SEC while Kentucky dropped to 7-2-0, 0-1-0 SEC.

"You think every game is important, and it is, but this weekend is so important for us as far as getting a spot in Orange Beach," Auburn Associate Head Coach Amy Berbary said. "We could have secured it last weekend but we still haven't. We just have to keep working."

Vanderbilt (5-7-5, 2-4-4 SEC) is one of the teams trying to track down Auburn while Kentucky (10-5-1, 5-4-1 SEC) is the team directly ahead of Auburn in the league standings. Auburn is undefeated in its last six meetings with Vanderbilt, winning four and tying two, but is just 1-1-2 against Kentucky since 2008.

Following this weekend's road trip, Auburn returns home to close out the regular season against Alabama in the annual Iron Bowl of Soccer at 7pm on Thursday, Oct. 25.
