Columbia, Mo.--Missouri's Blackout game attracted 1,288 fans, over 100 more than last week's game against Kansas. The attendance total moves last week's fourth-place total of 1,116 to fifth in the record books and takes its place. The Tigers put up a good fight, tallying six shots on goal to OSU's three, but dropped to Oklahoma State 3-1. Mizzou is now 3-5-2 overall, 1-1 Big 12.

The Tigers and the Cowgirls were head-to-head during the first half, with back-and-forth play dominating the period. Mizzou totaled seven shots in the first half, while Oklahoma only tallied two more attempts. After an early goal by Cowgirl Carson Michalowski, senior co-captain Krista Kruse netted an equalizer for the Tigers. The goal marks Kruse's fifth of the season. The goal started off of a Missouri corner kick, and Kruse flicked the ball past the goalkeeper into the back of the net.
Missouri came out in the second half and made plenty of chances, but the Cowgirls were able to notch a goal early in the half to make the score 3-1 in their favor. Kari Adam was able to squeeze a throughball past the Cowgirl defense with 20 minutes left in the game, but Oklahoma State goalkeeper Adrianna Franch beat Kendra Collins to the ball by a split second.
Jessie Crabtree stole away from the OSU offense to tear down the field advancing the ball to Alysha Bonnick. Bonnick's serve resulted in a corner kick for Mizzou allowing Kari Adam to rip a strong shot to the Cowgirl keeper who just barely deflected it out of bounds before Mizzou could capitalize.
Oklahoma State outfouled Mizzou 14-11 in the match, which is a change of pace for the Tigers who have tallied more fouls than every opponent so far this season. The physical match up proved to be a good test for Missouri.
"I thought Oklahoma State brought the energy all throughout the game," Head Coach Bryan Blitz said. "Our team has to learn to do that. We will have to bring the energy on Sunday, and it will be a true test for our team. Our goal is to take care of business on Sunday, perform well and bounce back."
The Tigers host Oklahoma on Sunday at 1 p.m. Fans can follow along on GameTracker, Mizzou All-Access or the Interactive Blog. Keep up with Mizzou Soccer on the team's social media sites as well.
