OU women's soccer drops season opener to Tennessee

NORMAN — The Oklahoma soccer team fired 14 shots from six players, but it was not enough to topple Tennessee on Friday night in the Sooners' season opener. OU fell by a score of 3-1 to the Lady Vols in front of 1,524 fans at Regal Soccer Stadium.

"While defeat never sits well, we have a great deal to be proud of tonight," Head coach Matt Potter said. "We came to play and for large parts of the game showed great endeavor and creativity. The difference in the game was the quality in front of the goal and Tennessee showed what good teams do when they are given opportunities."

Tennessee struck early in the contest, with Tori Bailey sending an unassisted shot past OU goalkeeper Kassadie Stade to put the Lady Vols up 1-0 at the 12:17 mark. Both teams dug in for the next 25 minutes, with the Sooners racking up nine shots over the course of the first half. UT managed a response to OU's efforts, with Eckel notching five saves in the first half alone to maintain Tennessee's lead.

The Sooners' lone goal of the evening came on a penalty kick from sophomore Devin Barrett. After a foul in the box late in the first half, Barrett lined up and fired a shot past Eckel to put Oklahoma on the board before halftime.

With the match locked at 1-1, UT picked up its second goal from Caroline Brown to take a 2-1 lead. The score came at the 44:37 mark, just 23 seconds prior to halftime.

The Lady Vols posted their final goal of the evening right out of the gates after halftime, with Cheyenne Spade scoring at the 48:52 mark. The score of 3-1 would stand for the remainder of the match, though OU send several more powerful kicks at Eckel in an attempt to chip away at the lead. Freshman Madison Saliba came especially close for the Sooners, forcing Eckel to make a diving save at the far post at the 62:08 mark.

  • DSC_0114web.jpg SOCCER: JV Lady Zebras edge Verdigris, 2-1

    Claremore sophomore forward Brylee Brasher may have felt a little out of position Monday night during the junior varsity game against Verdigris.
    Normally, starting in the goal for the Lady Zebras varsity team, Brasher came out of her comfort zone to start at forward for the Claremore JV.
    The position switch proved to be a great decision for head coach Robin Sutherland, as Brasher showed a tenacity on offense that led to Claremore’s 2-1 win over Verdigris.
