[TULSA-CREIGHTON] Freshman Cristian Mata scored both goals to give Tulsa a 2-0 win over No. 14 Creighton on Tuesday at the Hurricane Soccer & Track Stadium. Mata, whose brother Omar starts in midfield, has four goals in the last three games to give him eight for the season.

Creighton is the second Top 25 team Tulsa has beaten this season. The Hurricane earned a 2-1 win over New Mexico on Aug. 31. It is now 6-3-0 with 13 goals in its last three games.

“I thought we played a very good team in the midfield,” Tulsa coach Tom McIntosh said.  “They are a very dynamic group of players in their front six guys, so we were going to have to be good in the back.  I thought our organization was good in the back, our possession was good in the back, and I thought we did a good job connecting off our strikers and creating chances.  In the second half we got better wide play, which was what we wanted to do.”

Bryce Follensbee and Kyle Cumings fed Mata for the goals.

“Both goals were taken exceptionally well,” McIntosh said.  “The second goal was a great flick by Kyle and we obviously have a lot of confidence when Cristian gets in front of the goal.  I think all three of our strikers are doing an excellent job for us and we are really pleased with the work they are putting in in both possession, as well as off the ball, and defensively.”

Tulsa will return to action on Saturday against unbeaten Marshall.

Sept. 25 in Tulsa, Okla.
Tulsa 2 Creighton 0. Goals: Mata (Follensbee) 56, Mata (Cumings) 85.
