NORMAN, Okla. -- The Sooner soccer team remained perfect during the exhibition schedule in the spring with a 5-1 victory over UCO on Saturday at the OU Soccer Complex.

Oklahoma played its first game since March 6 but improved to 2-0-2 as Whitney Palmer scored her third goal of the spring slate. 

Lauren Alkek, Michele Alexander, Candace Campsey and Katharine Nutman also tallied scores as the Sooners hled a 39-11 advantage in shots.
