The Missouri soccer team lost to Oklahoma State 3-1 on Sunday in Stillwater, Okla.

The Cowgirls took an early 1-0 lead when Jolene Schweitzer beat Tiger goalkeeper Laura Buehrig in the 14th minute.

Missouri (4-5-1, 1-1) tied it up in the third minute of the second half when Ashley Gibbs, a senior defender, scored off of a Lauren Grice corner kick. It was Gibbs’s first goal of the season.

It took Oklahoma State (9-0-1, 1-0) less than three minutes to respond with the winner, though.

The Cowgirls, who outshot the Tigers 16-12, added another goal in the 74th minute.
