[BIG 12: Women]No. 14 Texas Tech’s 16-game unbeaten streak came to an end as the Red Raiders fell to Oklahoma State, 1-0, in the semifinals of the Big 12 Tournament at the Swope Soccer Village. Big 12 Offensive Player of the Year Frances Silvaconnected on a free kick in the 51st minute to give No. 15 West Virginia a 1-0 win over Baylor in the other semifinal.

Texas Tech held a 15-7 advantage in shots but couldn’t find the equalizer after freshman Courtney Dike put the Cowgirls ahead in the first half. Her goal was the first surrendered by Texas Tech in the opening half this season, and only the seventh allowed by the Red Raiders all year.

“I thought we played great in the second half,” Texas Tech head coach Tom Stone said. “You have to credit Oklahoma State because they were playing for their lives. They blocked shots and blocked crosses and did what it took to win."

Silva's goal, her conference-best 15th goal of the season, gave the Mointaineers their 250th victory in their 18-year history, all under Nikki Izzo-Brown.
 
“Having Fran finish that opportunity was huge for us,” said Izzo-Brown. “I’m really proud that we’re heading to the championship match.”
