The No. 13-ranked Missouri women's soccer team won its first match of conference play 2-0 at Auburn Friday evening.

Missouri sophomore midfielder Kaysie Clark, a unanimous selection to the 2011 Big-12 All-Newcomer Team, had an unassisted goal in the 28th minute of the first half. Senior midfielder Haley Krentz contributed the only goal of the second half with a 22-yard shot in the 51st minute.  Sophomore forward Taylor Grant assisted the second goal.

Redshirt sophomore goalkeeper McKenzie Sauerwein also had 8 saves in the match.

The Tigers are now 6-1 on the season and won the first five games of the season by a combined score of 14-4. The team's only loss was a 1-0 overtime defeat against Ohio State in Columbus on Sept. 6.

Missouri will continue SEC play on Sunday when the team travels to Columbia, S.C. to take on South Carolina.
