Columbia, Mo-- The Tigers topped the Arkansas Razorbacks 4-0 led by senior Kari Adam. Adam scored two goals on the game, her first two of the season. The win earned head coach Bryan Blitz his 200th career victory. Blitz's head coaching record now stands at 200-172-25.
"It feels great," head coach Bryan Blitz said. "Just getting the next win was important to me as a coach. We have gotten so close, playing such a tough schedule on the road. Getting this win shows our team that their hard work is starting to pay off. Now our goal is to get into practice and get another win. Being consistent is the next challenge."
Junior Kendra Collins started the scoring off early for the Tigers, netting her first goal of the season in the second minute of the game. Missouri defense held off the Razorbacks through the first half, keeping the score at 1-0 for the Tigers.

Later in the second half, Nottingham powered past two Razorbacks for a shot, only to have it go out of bounds. Nottingham finished the game with two shots and one shot on goal.
Arkansas almost got on the board in the second half, however the goal was ruled offside.
