Breaking Even
For the second consecutive week, the Sooners came away with a conference split, bringing their record to 7-5 overall and 2-2 in the Big 12.

On Friday, OU lost to Texas Tech, 2-1, in Lubbock after the Red Raiders scored two goals within a minute late in the second half to take the victory.

Oklahoma bounced back on Sunday in Boulder to shut out Colorado, 1-0, behind junior forward Jonette Coquat's fourth game-winning goal of the season. Sophomore Jana Cunningham recorded 13 saves for the shutout victory.

"It was a great game and a big win for us," said Oklahoma Head Coach Randy Evans, after the Colorado victory.

Defensive Marks
Oklahoma continued its stellar D over the weekend. Cunningham's shutout on Sunday upped her season total to 3.5, a Sooner record. Oklahoma's team total of four is a school single-season mark as well.

OU in the Big 12 Rankings
Several Sooners top the charts in conference rankings. Cunningham is first in saves (71) and second in goals-against average (0.93). Coquat is tied for first in game-winning goals (four).

As a team, OU ranks second in scoring defense, allowing just 0.92 goals per game (11 goals in 12 games).

Sooners Go Bear Hunting
The Sooners return home for a Big 12 contest Friday at 7 p.m. against the Baylor Bears. The OU soccer complex is located at the corner of Chautauqua Ave. and Imhoff Rd. in Norman (directly west of Lloyd Noble Center). The Sooners do not play Sunday.

About Baylor
Baylor is coming off a weekend split as well, losing to Texas and defeating Texas A&M, two of the top teams in the conference.

The Bears are currently 5-5-1 overall and 2-2 in the Big 12.

On Friday, the Longhorns pulled out a 2-1 decision in Austin. Baylor came back to upset the ninth-ranked Aggies, 2-1, Sunday in Waco. Gina Castellano scored the go-ahead goal with four minutes left in the match to lift the Bears to victory.

For the year, Molly Cameron leads the team in scoring with 17 points (8 goals, 1 assist).

Of the Bears' five losses, four were against nationally ranked teams.

Baylor leads the all-time series with Oklahoma, 2-1. Last year, the Bears defeated OU, 2-1, Oct. 15, in Norman.
