500 in Big 12 Play with Win Over TCU

STILLWATER, OK The OSU Cowgirls soccer team shutout TCU 3-0 at the Cowgirl Soccer
Complex on Senior Day Sunday afternoon.

TCU suffered its fourth loss in conference play, dropping its overall record to 8-4-2, while
OSU improves to 7-6-3 overall and 3-3-1 in Big 12 play.

The wind played a big factor in OSUs defensive approach in the second half against TCU.
The wind reached speeds up to 30 miles per hour, but the OSU defense was not fazed.

OSUs goalie Michela Ongaro praised her teammates effort on defense in the second half.

Defending against the wind for 45 minutes is a big factor, but our girls laid it n the line and
really defended hard and worker hard, Ongaro said. Our defense stepped up huge.

OSUs focus this game was rebounding from the loss it took on Friday against its rival
Oklahoma where it was shutout. The Cowgirls came to play against TCU getting two first
half goals within a 10-minute stretch from freshman Jaci Jones and sophomore Haley
Woodard.

OSUs head coach Colin Carmichael was happy with how his team performed.

I was really proud of how we rebounded from a tough game on Friday, Carmichael said.
Our response was great.

Jones scored the first goal of the game in the 21st minute off a nice spin move to get away
from the defender that set her up from about 20 yards out. The goal was her fifth of the
season.

About seven minutes later, Woodard got in on the action and scored her sixth goal of the
season in the 28th minute. Along with the goal from Jones, this one was shot from outside
the box.

The last goal for OSU came off a penalty kick from senior Courtney Dike in the 88th minute.
The goal for Dike brought her career total to 30, which is five shy of the school record.

Oklahoma State will shift its focus to a road meeting with Arkansas Little Rock in a non-
conference game before it faces top-ranked West Virginia to end its regular season.
