STILLWATER — The Tulsa women's soccer team dropped a 2-1 decision to Oklahoma State on Sunday night at the Cowgirls Soccer Complex. TU fell to 6-3-1 on the season, while OSU moved to 4-6 overall.
"I thought we played well and there is a lot we can take from it, but it is a loss," Head Coach Kyle Cussen said. "We were up 1-0 with 25 minutes left when we got a red card, had to play a man down and they scored two goals. We have to do a better job of keeping our composure and finish out a game."
Christina Holmes put the Golden Hurricane on the board with 33:48 ticked off the clock off a corner kick taken by Roman Edwards that was controlled by Darienne Chapman. This was Holmes' second goal of the season.
In the 57th minute, Allie Stephenson evened the score off a free kick from 19-yards out, and then in the 82nd minute Anna Beffer tallied the go-ahead goal off a pass from Madison Mercado.
The Cowgirls had a 19-12 lead in shots, including a 4-3 advantage in shots on goal, while Tulsa had a 4-3 lead in corner kicks.
Rachel Thun had a team-best three shots, while Lauren King, Tana Dake and Alexa Sidorakis each had two attempts. Courtney McKeon played all 90 minutes between the posts for two saves.
TU will return to action on Thursday, Sept. 25th as the Hurricane opens up the American Athletic Conference campaign against USF. Game time is set for 7 p.m. at the Hurricane Soccer and Track Stadium.
