Missouri sophomore Meghan Pfeiffer (3) heads home the Tigers' lone goal against Oklahoma State on Sunday at Walton Stadium.

COLUMBIA - Oklahoma State defeated the No. 5 Missouri soccer team 2-1 on a Kasey Langdon goal in the fourth minute of overtime Sunday at Walton Stadium.

Meghan Pfeiffer put the Tigers up 1-0 in the 41st minute with her first goal of the season, but the Cowboys tied the game with a Siera Strawser goal in the 57th minute. Missouri outshot Oklahoma State 24-11.

It was the first Big 12 Conference loss of the season for the Tigers. Missouri (10-3, 4-1) trails only Texas A&M (5-1) in the Big 12 standings. The Tigers hold the head-to-head tiebreaker over the Aggies.

“We feel good about where we stand (in the Big 12),” MU coach Bryan Blitz said. “It’s difficult to go through the Big 12 season undefeated.”
