Following OU’s upset victory over Oklahoma State Friday night, the Oklahoma soccer team finished the weekend with zero losses.
Neither Oklahoma (1-0-1) or Utah (1-0-1) could capture the upperhand, seeing a 1-1 draw after playing 110 minutes Sunday at John Crain Field.
In the ninth minute, Utah’s Katie Taylor assisted Kaycee Buckley for the first goal of the day. Buckley’s shot was nearly saved by OU goalkeeper Kaitlyn Fahrner, but Utah’s early lead would not last long.
Oklahoma freshman Jordyn Webster delivered a nice through ball to fellow freshman midfielder Lizzi Luallin in the 26th minute. Luallin, a native of Leawood, Kansas, capitalized on the assist by putting the ball in the back of the net.
Luallin’s equalizer would be the last goal of the day as the Sooners and Utes drew in both teams’ second game of the season.
Fahrner surrendered her first goal of the season, but made four saves in the Sunday out-of-conference match.
Oklahoma took 10 shots, only three of which were on goal. The Sooners were tested in the first half, but the two competitive clubs would not give an inch in the second or overtime periods.
Oklahoma junior Devin Barrett had a chance late in the second half, but could not convert off an unsuccessful Shiloh Price assist.
While OU could not find the game-winning goal against Utah, the Sooners’ opening weekend was a great start to their 2014 campaign under head coach Matt Potter.
Oklahoma will welcome Florida and Florida State this upcoming weekend, which will sandwich OU’s football season opener against Louisiana Tech on Saturday.
