NORMAN, Okla. - The University of Missouri soccer team earned a 5-2 victory over the Oklahoma Sooners Sunday afternoon in Norman Oklahoma. The win improved Mizzou's record to 11-6 overall and 2-4 in Big 12 Conference play, while the loss dropped the Sooners' to 6-10 and 1-4.
The five goals were the most Mizzou has scored all season. Additionally, all five tallies came from five different Tigers.
Two minutes later, Clark tallied her second goal of the year when she beat two defenders and unleashed a shot from the top of the box that found the back of the net. In the 43rd minute, Oklahoma's Kelly Price scored for the Sooners for a 2-1 Tiger advantage at the half.
Sophomore Dominique Richardson opened the second half with her fifth goal of the year off an assist from classmate Alyssa Diggs. However, Oklahoma responded in the 59th minute to cut the Tigers' lead to 3-2.
In the 71st minute, senior Kendra Collins gave MU some breathing room when she scored her second goal of the year. Sophomore Danielle Nottingham put the game away in the 86th minute when Collins found her in the box. Nottingham pushed the ball past the Sooner keeper for a 5-2 MU advantage, the eventual final score.
Redshirt freshman goalie McKenzie Sauerwein made seven saves in goal for the Tigers.
Mizzou returns home to host the Kansas Jayhawks on Friday, Oct. 21 at 6:30 p.m. at Walton Stadium.
