The Missouri soccer team lost 1-0 to No. 17 Cal Poly on Sunday afternoon at Walton Stadium. The loss was the Tigers first at home and breaks a five-game winning streak, moving their record to 5-2-1.

The Mustangs’ Becky Clark scored less than three minutes into the game.

“They set the tone in the first 10 minutes of the game,” MU coach Bryan Blitz said.

Missouri fought back, finishing with 18 shots to Cal Poly’s nine, but only four of the shots were on goal.

“We can’t always rely on late-game heroics,” Blitz said.

In a physical game, Clark and MU’s Jennifer Nobis were given yellow cards.

The loss also broke a school-record streak of consecutive shutouts at three games.

The Tigers will host No. 14 Texas A&M at 7 p.m. Friday.
