Missouri scored two goals in the opening 15 minutes to beat UC Santa Barbara on Sunday afternoon at Audrey J. Walton Stadium. The win improves Missouri's record to 2-0 on the season, while UC Santa Barbara fell to 0-2.

Just 31 seconds into the match senior Taiwo Adeshigbin passed off to sophomore Abi Raymer, who chipped a 16-yard shot over the Gaucho goalie and into the back of the net. The goal, which put Missouri on top 1-0, was the first of the season for Raymer, while Adeshigbin notched her first assist of the year after a two-goal performance on Friday.

In the 15th minute, junior Haley Krentz sent a perfect cross from the right sideline into the box. Junior Alyssa Diggs one-timed the pass right into the net to give the Tigers a 2-0 lead. The goal was the third in the first two games for Diggs, while Krentz picked up her second assist of the season.

Missouri outshot UC Santa Barbara 19-10 overall, including a 10-5 advantage in shots on goal.

Missouri next travels to Berkeley, Calif., to face the California Golden Bears at 5 p.m. next Sunday. The game will be televised live on the Pac-12 Network.
