Tie ends Cowgirls' win streak at 15 games

[OKLAHOMA STATE-TEXAS] No. 2 Oklahoma State had its school-record 15-game winning streak snapped Friday night when it had to settle for a 1-1 tie with Texas before 1,394 fans at the Cowgirl Soccer Complex.

Texas became the first team to take the lead against the Cowgirls all season when Taylor Knaack connected with Kristin Cummins for a goal to give the Longhorns a 1-0 lead in the 4th minute.

OSU equalized in the 57th minute when Krista Lopez sent a long pass to Megan Marchesano, who blazed past a defender and delivered a shot from 15 yards for her fifth goal of the season.
Both teams had their chances to break the deadlock.

OSU goalie AD Franch dove to stop a shot by Lexi Harris in the 59th minute and then leaped to tip a shot over the crossbar on a free kick by Dane Nina Frausing Pedersen.
Lopez had a shot saved by UT goalie Alexa Gaul and another cleared off the line by a Longhorn defender with just under five minutes remaining.
“It was a great game," said OSU coach Colin Carmichael. “It was two very good teams going at it. It could have gone either way. The first 15 or 20 minutes, for whatever reason, we didn’t play as well and perhaps they came out very strong and didn’t let us play. They got the early goal, and it took us a while to recover. But after that, we edged it on chances. It was a very competitive, very high level game, and both teams can walk away with their heads held high and say they played a good game."

With the draw, OSU is now 15-0-1 overall and 4-0-1 in Big 12 play. The Longhorns are 9-5-1 and 3-2-1.
