Oklahoma State has officially bounced back from a tough start with six straight wins to improve to .500 at 6-6-0.
The Cowgirls began Big 12 conference play Friday night with a, 1-0, home victory over Iowa State. Kelsey Bass capitalized on a corner kick in the 29th minute after the ball bounced off an Iowa State defender into the net. Goalkeeper Rosa Medina did the rest of the work for Oklahoma State and recorded her third shutout of the season to seal the win.
"I feel good (about my performances)," Medina said. "It gives me confidence and I think overall our defense is playing a lot better. From the forwards, from the backs, to me. We’ve just been playing really well, so I think that’s good."
Medina continued her hot streak Sunday with a second straight shutout in the Cowgirls' 2-0 win over Dayton at Cowgirl Soccer Complex to end the weekend without allowing a score. French standout Laurene Tresfield put Oklahoma State ahead early with her first career goal just 63 seconds into the match. Tresfield's goal would wind up being all the Cowgirls would need, but fellow freshman Anna Beffer added another goal in the 48th minute. Beffer was also awarded with an assist during Tresfield's goal.
"I’ve been doing this a long time and getting six wins in a row is tough, especially when you look at the competition — it’s not as if we’ve been playing teams we’re expected to just go beat," said coach Colin Carmichael. "I’m really proud, especially after the way things started, of how we bounced back."
