Despite a strong offensive performance in its last outing against Kentucky, the Mizzou women’s soccer team recorded a 1-1 draw in double overtime against the Mississippi State Bulldogs Sunday afternoon. The tie brings the Tigers to 4-3-4 overall on the season and 2-1-1 in the SEC, while moving the Bulldogs to 3-5-3 overall and 1-1-2 in conference play.

Sophomore Savannah Trujillo recorded Mizzou’s lone goal, her second consecutive game with a goal and her team leading fourth goal of the season.

Early in the 12th minute after her initial shot was saved, Trujillo easily bagged the rebound into the right side of the net, giving Missouri a 1-0 lead. Trujillo’s goal gives her a career high, improving upon the three goals that she recorded as a freshman last season.

Mississippi State answered in the 39th minute as freshman Kennadi Carbin scored off a corner kick by sophomore McKenzie Adams that came loose in the box.

Both teams had opportunities to score in the second half, most notably in the 64th minute. Missouri sophomore Jessica Johnson moved the ball into the box, but her attempt flared high and hit off the crossbar.

After the end of regulation, Mizzou had two opportunities to win the game in overtime, but was not able to finish in either scenario. One minute into the first overtime, Johnson again couldn’t finish, as the Bulldog goalie came off her line to make the impressive save. Later in the 106th minute, after a pass from Trujillo, junior Lauren Selaiden bounced a shot off the left post.

Mizzou’s draw with Mississippi State moves the Tigers into third place in the SEC with seven points trailing conference-leading South Carolina by five points.

Missouri’s next game is at home against Ole Miss (7-2-2) on Friday, Oct. 2 at 6:30pm. Stay tuned to MUTV and mutigers.com for the latest info, and follow the team on Twitter @MizzouSoccer for in-game score updates.
