Auburn's Casie Ramsier picked up the loose ball in the box and easily put a 14-yard shot into the lower right corner of the net for a 1-0 Auburn advantage.
Five minutes later, Missouri responded off a set piece. The home Tigers were awarded a free kick near the right sideline about 30-yards away from goal. Junior Kaysie Clark sent a bending ball in front of the goal into a crowd. Selaiden outjumped everyone and headed a 10-yard shot into the upper right part of the net for a 1-1 game. The tally was Selaiden's fourth goal of the year, which is third-best on the squad.
Mizzou increased its offensive pressure in the final 15 minutes of regulation as the squad looked for the go-ahead goal.
