Everything comes together for Sooners

[OKLAHOMA-OKLAHOMA STATE] A record crowd of 2,475 fans watched Oklahoma defeat No. 3 Oklahoma State, 1-0, in their annual Oklahoma Farm Bureau Bedlam Series on Friday at John Crain Field. Mexican international Renae Cuellar, a transfer from Arizona, scored to give the Sooners the win, its first over Oklahoma State  in the last 11 games of the series dating back to 2005.

Cuellar made a run right through the middle of the Oklahoma State defense, sending a shot from the top of the box into the bottom right corner for her fifth goal of the season.

"We obviously defended very well," said OU coach Matt Potter. "We knew if we found an outlet [on the offensive end] we could put something together. It all came together tonight."

Oklahoma senior Kelsey Devonshire notched her first shutout of the season with six saves.

"It means a lot," said Devonshire on the win. "It means we have a lot to look forward to and a lot to build off. We know we can beat a top ranked team. It was an awesome win."

OSU outshot the Sooners, 20-9, including a 14-3 margin in the final half, and also had a 10-1 advantage in corner kicks.

“You’ve got to give credit to the Oklahoma kids – they played really hard,” said OSU coach Colin Carmichael. “Once they got the lead, they really sat in and defended it well and made it tough for us to break down. But from our perspective, if you create 20 shots on goal, you’ve got to score one. That’s where we’re disappointed. We outshot them 14-3 in the second half, and you would hope to get a goal out of that. But we didn’t."
