GAINESVILLE, Fla. (WCJB) -The Florida Gator soccer team opened up the home portion of conference play on a high note after defeating the Kentucky Wildcats, 1-0 in overtime on Thursday.

One minute into overtime, Julianne Leskauskas scored the golden goal to give Florida the win. Goalkeeper Alexa Goldberg posted her third straight shutout, making six saves.

The Gators improve to 2-5-3 overall, but more significantly, 1-0-1 in league play. They travel to Starkville next to take on Mississippi State on Sunday at 7 p.m.
