Tigers Boom the Sooners, Win 5-2

Friday, Oct. 14 –

The Missouri Tigers turned in their most impressive attacking performance of the season on Sunday, as they racked up five goals against the Oklahoma Sooners to defeat them 5-2.

Mizzou made it a concentrated team effort to get everyone in on the action, and they did just that as a different Tiger scored each goal.

Taylor Grant and Kaysie Clark started off the fun in the first half, with Grant’s goal being her fourth of the season and Clark’s being her second. Missouri held a two-goal lead until the 43rd minute, when the Sooners’ Kelly Price finally got Oklahoma on the board.

The hot feet of the Tigers would only get more heated though as Dominique Richardson scored her fifth goal of the year early in the second half. Kendra Collins and Danielle Nottingham would chime in on the scoring as well, while Oklahoma could only muster one more goal in the half.

This was an amazingly efficient scoring performance by the Tigers, as they had nine overall shots on goal and scored on five of those.

Mizzou goalkeeper McKenzie Sauerwein turned in a terrific start, facing nine shots on goal and saving seven of them. Turning in six saves last game and seven this game, the redshirt freshman is sure making a name for herself this season.

The Tigers’ overall record moves to 11-6 overall, and they will look to continue the sharpshooting Friday night at 6:30 p.m. against the Kansas Jayhawks at Walton Stadium. Coming off this firing range of a performance, Mizzou looks like it has a fully-loaded arsenal for another Border War.
