HOUSTON -- Renae Cuellar scored the game-tying goal in the 81st minute as the Oklahoma women's soccer team and Rice fought to a 1-1 overtime tie on Friday.

Oklahoma goes to 4-3-2 on the year and has yet to find its first win in four overtime games this season. Rice is now 2-4-2 this season.

"You have to credit Rice for taking the game to us and you would expect that with them being at home," said Oklahoma Head Coach Matt Potter. "Halftime was an opportunity for us to ask honest questions and then regroup."

Cuellar had four shots on goal and five overall, including OU's goal, while Annalisa Hall had five total shots with two on frame.

Oklahoma set up its lone goal after the second of two corner kicks by Hall. Junior Zoe Dickson fired a shot that was saved by Owl goalkeeper Amy Czyz, but Cuellar collected the ball from 10 yards out to notch it into the back of the net from the left wing to tie the game with less than 10 minutes remaining in regulation.

"A great run from Annalisa and a classy finish from Renae got us back to even and from there we were disappointed not to push on," Potter said.

Sooner senior goalkeeper Kelsey Devonshire, the reigning Big 12 Defender of the Week, tied her season high with eight saves on a night that saw plenty of shots from both teams. Rice claimed the advantage in overall shots, outshooting the Sooners 22-17.

The Big 12's third-leading scorer coming into the game, Cuellar leads the Sooners with six goals on the year. Hall's assist was her second this season.

OU's goal tied the game late after Rice scored in the 68th minute off a shot that snuck inside the left post.

On Sunday, Sept. 16, OU stays in the state of Texas, traveling to Dallas to face SMU at 7 p.m. CT.
