Sunday, October 10, 2010 | 5:53 p.m. CDT; updated 6:19 p.m. CDT, Sunday, October 10, 2010

Nebraska's offense took a half to get going, but once it did the Missouri women's soccer team couldn't keep up.

The Cornhuskers beat the Tigers 4-2 on Sunday in Lincoln, Neb., behind four second-half goals. 

Missouri jumped out to a 2-0 lead with goals from freshman forward Alyssa Diggs and junior forward Kendra Collins in the first 10 minutes of the game. 

In the second half, Morgan Marlborough helped Nebraska rally. The sophomore forward had assists on the Cornhuskers' first two goals and scored unassisted in the 76th minute for Nebraska's final goal.

Marlborough ended the day with four shots on goal. 

The Tigers (5-6-2, 3-2 Big 12) host Texas at 6:30 p.m. Friday at Walton Stadium.
