The Oklahoma women's soccer team took undefeated Colorado College to double overtime before losing, 2-1, Sunday at the Hampton Inn Lobo Invitational in Albuquerque, N.M.
Oklahoma (2-2), aiming for its third straight victory, held a 1-0 lead late in the second half before the Tigers' Mari Miezwa tied it at the 81:33 mark.
The game remained tied at one until Kasey Clark registered the game-winner, with an assist from Jessica Reyes, in the 111th minute.
Oklahoma took the lead, 1-0, just three minutes into the game. Forward Jonette Coquat scored her second goal of the season, unassisted, 2:24 into the contest.
Goalkeeper Jana Cunningham played the entire game for the Sooners and tallied 11 saves. Cunningham and senior Ayn Toppin had split time in goal in each of OU's first three games.
"Colorado College was a good, physical team," said Head Coach Randy Evans. "But, overall, I'm proud of our effort this weekend. We never stopped and, considering the heat and elevation, I thought we performed pretty well."
Oklahoma returns to Norman for its home opener next Friday against SMU at 7 p.m. The game will mark the Sooners' initial contest in the new OU soccer complex, located at the intersection of Chatauqua and Imhoff (immediately west of Lloyd Noble Center) in Norman.
