BATON ROUGE, La. - The Mizzou soccer team recorded 19 shots but could not find the back of the net as Missouri dropped a 1-0 game to LSU Friday evening in Baton Rouge, La. Mizzou fell to 6-7-1 overall and 2-3-1 in Southeastern Conference action, while LSU improved to 9-3-2 and 5-0-1.
Redshirt junior goalkeeper McKenzie Sauerwein made six saves in net for Mizzou.
Missouri controlled play in the first half but could not manage to tally a goal. Just 10 minutes into the match, junior Taylor Grant dribbled around a defender in the box but her shot was saved by the LSU goalie.
In the 33rd minute, sophomore Reagan Russell had a breakaway and dribbled into the left corner of the box. LSU's goalie came off her line to cut off the angle of the shot and made the point-blank save. 10 minutes later, freshman Lauren Selaiden blasted a 17-yard bomb from the left corner of the box toward the near post. Again, LSU's goalkeeper played it perfectly and stopped the attempt.
LSU's offensive picked up its pressure to start the second half and peppered Sauerwein with shots. The keeper made two point-blank saves before LSU finally broke through four minutes into the second frame. Summer Clarke played the ball to the front of the box. Heather Magee ran onto the pass and rocketed a shot that beat Sauerwein and went into the left corner of the goal for a 1-0 LSU advantage.
The Missouri offense took control over the final 15 minutes of the match and began to bombard LSU's defense with shots. In the 79th minute, sophomore Reagan Russell unleashed a 22-yard blast toward the goal. LSU's keeper made a diving save to her left to keep the ball out of the back of the net.
Three minutes later, Mizzou had successive headers from senior Dominique Richardson and Grant. However, both chances flew wide to end the scoring threat.
Sauerwein played all 90 minutes in the contest to set Missouri's career record for minutes played in goal. He school mark now stands at 5021:12.
Mizzou returns home to host a pair of SEC games next weekend. The Tigers face South Carolina on Friday, Oct. 18 at 6:30 p.m. and Auburn on Sunday, Oct. 20 at 1 p.m.
