“It was a disappointing result, but as usual we played hard and fought to the end,” UWM head coach Greg Henschel said. “I was proud of the team for finding a goal at the end of the match. Sammy Vovos, in a really brave moment, had a great finish. I was glad to see the team play through the whole match.”
Oklahoma State broke through for the game’s first goal in the 37th minute. Kelsey Bass bent a corner kick into the goal at the far post for her first goal of the season.
The Cowgirls put in a second goal in the final minute before halftime when Megan Marchesano broke free from the midfield and was able to dribble in on keeper Jamie Forbes 1v1. She calmly finished past Forbes to give the road team a two-goal advantage heading into overtime.
In the second half, OSU pushed their lead to 3-0 in the 50th minute when Carson Michalowski headed in a free kick from Bass.
