NORMAN, Okla. - The University of Oklahoma women's soccer team concluded its 2000 exhibition season with a 2-0 victory over the '82 OKC Royals club team Monday evening at the OU practice facility.

Oklahoma's first goal came at the 17:41 mark when sophomore forward Heather Martinelli broke through the defense for an unassisted score. OU then made it 2-0 when freshman forward Logan Womack netted a shot after an assist from Jonette Coquat at 31:00. Coquat, a junior forward, finished the exhibition season with a goal and two assists to lead the Sooners.

For the second consecutive game, Ayn Toppin and Jana Cunningham combined for the shutout. Each played a half in the victory.

"I thought it was a great test for our team in terms of getting us ready for the season," noted OU Head Coach Randy Evans. "The caliber of our opponent tonight was high - I think they could beat some of the teams on our schedule.

"One of the things I was pleased with in the preseason was our scoring balance," continued Evans. "We had four goals scored by four players in our two preseason games."

The Sooners' first regular season game will be played Friday, Aug. 25, against Tulsa at 8 p.m. in Edmond. OU will then face Oral Roberts Sunday at 7 p.m. in Edmond.
