LAWRENCE, Kan. - The University of Oklahoma women's soccer team lost another close contest Sunday at Kansas, 2-1. For the Sooners, who outshot the Jayhawks 12-11, it was their sixth one-goal loss of the season.

Kansas scored the game's first two goals at the 16:12 and 65:44 marks against OU goalkeeper Jana Cunningham. KU's Katie Lents scored her third of the season when she lifted a chip shot over Cunningham's head for the first Jayhawk score. In the second half, Natalie Hoogveld netted the game-winning goal, her fourth score of the season, after muscling past Sooner defenders.

Oklahoma got on the board at the 80:57 mark when a Sooner crossing pass went off the head of a Kansas defender and into the net. It was the second own-goal for Oklahoma in the last four games.

Freshman Cunningham, who played the entire game for the first time this season, made four saves and fell to 1-2-1 this season while Kansas keeper Laura Rohde made five stops.

Kansas set a school single-season record with its eighth win and stands 8-5 overall and 3-3 in the Big 12. The Sooners are now 2-10-1 and 1-5-1.

Oklahoma has five games remaining on its regular season schedule, the next four at home. The Sooners host Baylor Friday at 6 p.m. and Texas Tech Sunday at 1 p.m.
