In its regular-season finale, the University of Oklahoma women's soccer lost to rival Oklahoma State, 2-1, in double overtime Saturday in front of 551 fans in Stillwater, Okla. OU finished the regular season with record of 9-8-1 overall and 4-5-1 in the Big 12 while OSU concluded its 2000 campaign at 4-14-1 overall and 1-8-1 in the conference.

Joanne Edwards registered the game-winning goal in the 118th minute of play after taking a pass from Mercy Morrical.

Morrical would aid in the Cowgirls' first goal as well. Andi Lute scored at 31:52 off a double assist from Morrical and Kim Graves.

Oklahoma quickly tied the game at one when sophomore midfielder Jennifer Enos notched her first goal of the season in the 36th minute. Her goal was assisted by senior midfielder Mary Morse, who tallied her first point of the year.

OSU goalkeeper Katharina Doud (4-12-1) picked up the victory while sophomore Jana Cunningham (7-7-1) took the loss for Oklahoma.

Despite the setback, the Sooners outshot Oklahoma State, 20-10.

"I was disappointed in our execution," said Oklahoma Head Coach Randy Evans. "Give Oklahoma State credit, though, they played their hearts out tonight. It's upsetting to know you're winless against the three teams who didn't qualify for the Big 12 Tournament. It shows some inconsistency."

Oklahoma will be seeded No. 6 in the conference tournament. They will play the No. 3 seed, Texas, Wednesday at 7:30 p.m. at Blossom Soccer Stadium in San Antonio, Texas.
