FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. - Mizzou tallied an equalizer with 19 seconds left in regulation but allowed an Arkansas goal with 55 seconds left in overtime to suffer a 2-1 overtime loss Thursday night in Fayetteville, Ark. With the loss, Mizzou will be the No. 9 seed in next week's Southeastern Conference Tournament in Orange Beach, Ala.
The Tigers end the regular season with an 8-8-3 overall mark and a 4-4-3 SEC record, while the Razorbacks closed with records of 12-7 and 5-6.
With just 19 seconds left in regulation and Mizzou trailing 1-0, the Tigers tallied the equalizer to send the match into overtime. Senior Alyssa Diggs sent a left-footed cross across the goalmouth that found the foot of senior Dominique Richardson. Richardson one-timed the pass into the lower right corner of the net for a 1-1 score. The goal was Richardson's fourth of the season, while Diggs earned her fourth assist of the year.
Both teams had chances in the first overtime but Arkansas notched the game-winner with just 55 seconds remaining in the session. The Mizzou defense could not manage to clear ball and Arkansas' Lindsey Mayo volleyed the ball into the upper 90 for the Razorback win.
The flow of play went back and forth over the opening minutes before the Arkansas attack began to put pressure on the Mizzou defense.
The Razorbacks took a 1-0 advantage in the 28th minute off a set piece. Following a Mizzou foul, Arkansas sent a free kick toward the box that found the head of Ashleigh Ellenwood. The Razorback's header eluded the Tiger defense and fell into the lower left corner of the net.
In the 58th minute, Arkansas had a near breakaway opportunity but sophomore Candace Johnson tracked back to win the ball at the edge of the 18-yard box. The Tigers countered immediately after but senior Danielle Nottingham's shot from outside the right side of the box flew into the side netting.
With 10 minutes remaining in regulation, a bouncing ball found Clark at the left corner of the box, but her one-time sailed way over the net to end the scoring chance. The Tigers continued to press before they notched the equalizer with seconds remaining.
Mizzou next travels to Orange Beach, Ala., for the 2013 SEC Tournament. As the nine-seed, the Tigers open play on Monday, Nov. 4 against eight-seed Arkansas at 6:30 p.m.
