Tulsa dominated the Cowgirls statistically as they outshot Wyoming 29-4 and took eight corner kicks compared to UW's zero.

The Cowgirl's next game will be this Saturday, Oct. 10, as they will be in Springfield, Missouri, for a 10 a.m. matchup with the Drury University Panthers. Drury is an NCAA Div. I independent soccer program. Next week Wyoming returns home for conference matches against TCU on Oct. 16 and versus SMU on Oct. 18.

Postgame quotes from head coach Liza Grant: "In the first half, despite giving up an early goal, we did begin to move the ball around the way we would like to and that created some opportunities for us, but we struggled to put the pieces together in the second half.

"As a team, we just need to put this loss behind us and focus on coming out strong on Saturday against Drury and playing the way we know we are capable of. We need to play hard for 90 minutes, put together a complete game and get a total team effort."
