NORMAN, Okla. - The Oklahoma women's soccer team won its second consecutive game Friday night, 1-0 over UW-Milwaukee, in front of 423 fans at the OU Soccer Complex. Behind freshman forward Logan Womack and sophomore goalkeeper Jana Cunningham, the Sooners equaled the number of victories they posted all of last season. Oklahoma improved its record to 4-3 on the year, while the Panthers fell to 3-4.
Womack scored the game's lone goal from approximately 10 yards out just two minutes before intermission. Her second score of the year came off a pass from junior Brianne Strothers after the midfielder brought the ball up the left sideline. It was Strothers' first point of the season.
Cunningham recorded the shutout victory for her second straight win to improve to 2-2. She tallied eight saves, all in the second half, and helped OU fend off a late charge by the Panthers. Mary Duffy (3-4) took the loss.
"We did what we had to do," said Oklahoma Head Coach Randy Evans. "More than the victory, I was impressed with our level of play. We went out in the first half and took it to a good team. They put pressure on us in the second half, but we came through. Jana was terrific."
The homestand continues for the Sooners Sunday when they will play TCU at 1 p.m. at the OU Soccer Complex. The facility is located at the corner of Chautauqua Ave. and Imhoff Rd. (directly west of Lloyd Noble Center).
