Senior Karen Bauer converted a penalty kick less than three minutes into overtime to give Missouri a 2-1 win against host Northwestern on Friday in the Tigers’ season opener.

After Northwestern goalkeeper Whitney Jones stopped a run at the goal by Jennifer Nobis, Nobis collected the rebound and was fouled inside the box to set up Bauer’s winner.

The Tigers led 1-0 at halftime after Nobis knocked in the rebound of Elyse Nikonchuk’s header off the post about 20 minutes in.

Northwestern tied the game early in the second half when freshman Kelly Hans beat goalkeeper Laura Buehrig.

The Tigers had 17 shots to Northwestern’s eight, and had an 8-to-5 advantage in shots on goal. Buehrig made four saves to notch her first career victory.

Missouri plays today at No. 14 Illinois, then hosts the Nike Tiger Invitational next weekend.
