"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.
