Oklahoma State defeated the Missouri soccer team 3-2 in overtime Sunday in Stillwater, Okla.

The No. 16 Tigers jumped to a 2-0 lead by the 16th minute on goals by sophomore Alysha Bonnick and junior Kristin Andrighetto. The scores tied them for the team lead for goals this season with six each.

However, the No. 12 Cowgirls came back with goals in the 55th and 71st minutes to tie the game and force overtime. Oklahoma State senior Yolanda Odenyo scored the equalizer, giving her a Big 12 Conference-leading 11 goals this season.

Sophomore striker Katie Richardson sent the Cowgirls' first shot of overtime into the top, right corner of the Tiger's net for the winner 1:27 into overtime.

The Tigers had nearly stretched their lead to three in the 29th minute, but freshman Kendra Collin's shot from the right side was tipped by Cowgirls goalkeeper Erin Stigler before hitting the post and bouncing back into play.

Missouri goalkeeper Tasha Dittamore finished with seven saves after facing 22 shots from a Cowgirls' offense.

The Tigers, who fell to 9-4 overall and 4-2 in the Big 12, play next Friday in Columbia against the Francis Marion (S.C.) University. Missouri travels to play No. 8 Texas A&M on Sunday.

Oklahoma State improves to 12-1-1 and 3-1-1 in the Big 12.
