Holly King scored the winning goal for the Gators in the 90th minute and the No. 24 UF soccer team (3-2-1, 0-0 SEC) roared out of a lightning delay to defeat New Mexico (3-4-1, 0-0 MWC) 3-2 at James G. Pressly Stadium.

For UF's first score, Havana Solaun (Buchholz) brought the ball down to just above the 18-yard box and found sophomore Annie Speese who knocked it in for her first goal of the season. Shortly after the delay, senior All-American Erika Tymrak sparked the Gators with a goal to knot the score at 2-2. For the winner, senior Jo Dragotta sent a ball into the box that was flicked off the head of King for her first goal of the season.
