Tulsa, Okla. - Oklahoma soccer will attempt to keep the Sooners' winning streak alive in Tulsa when they meet the ORU Golden Eagles at 8 p.m. on Sunday night.

OU (1-0) shutout Tulsa, 2-0, on Friday evening in the season opener for both schools. The soccer contest wrapped up on the ORU campus in south Tulsa just as the Sooner football team was nearing halftime with TU in their season opener at Skelly Stadium to the north. Football followed soccer's lead and did not surrender a point to the Golden Hurricane, winning 37-0.

Soccer head coach Randy Evans enjoyed a breakout opener for his incoming freshmen as newcomers Lauren MacIver and Michelle Enos provided the fireworks for the Sooners.

MacIver's goal with eight minutes remaining in the first half proved to be enough for OU. In the second half, Michelle Enos found the back of the net to push the final score to 2-0. Sooner goalkeeper Catherine Wade recorded the shutout, as the Golden Hurricane (0-1) were limited to only three shots on goal.

Oklahoma returns to action in T-Town against host Oral Roberts (0-1) at the ORU soccer complex. The Golden Eagles lost their game against Oklahoma State on Friday night, 3-1.

Admission is free to the game.
