Cowgirls' Woes Continue in the Desert

Oklahoma State dropped two matches this weekend in the Sun Devil Classic

The Oklahoma State soccer squad has yet to catch a break this season and nothing changed this weekend at the Sun Devil Classic in Tempe, Ariz.

The Cowgirls had the chance to seal their first win of the season Sunday with under ten minutes remaining, but Arizona (3-1-1) charged back and stole a 3-1 victory to drop OSU to 0-6 on the season.

After a scoreless first half, Allie Stephenson put OSU on the board in the 58th minute. Stephenson received a penalty kick after being tripped in the penalty box and took advantage of the opportunity to put the Cowgirls ahead 1-0.

Oklahoma State held its lead until Arizona's Lexie Selman drilled a game-tying 25-yard shot with just over six minutes left in the match. Moments later Arizona capitalized on a free kick, and all of a sudden the Wildcats had taken a, 2-1, lead. To add insult to injury, Arizona punched in its final goal with 18 seconds left.

The Cowgirls' weekend woes began Friday night after falling to host Arizona State, 2-0. Once again, Oklahoma State was tied with goose eggs at the break, but the Sun Devils scored two second half goals to improve to 3-1-1.

Oklahoma State will begin a six-game homestead this weekend, which should help the team get back on track and recover from multiple injuries. The Cowgirls will play very beatable Cal-Poly and Tennesse-Martin this weekend. The easier weekend will help the team out before the OSU Invitational, which features interstate foe Tulsa and a dangerous Memphis team. Texas Tech will also be competing, but will not play the Cowgirls.
