Set pieces played a pivotal role in the Oklahoma State soccer team’s match against Creighton.
The Cowgirls won their fourth match in a row with a 2-0 victory against the Bluejays on Friday at Morrison Stadium.

After Rodriguez’s cross, freshman midfielder Grace Yochum headed in the ball, giving the Cowgirls (7-0-1) the lead.
Fewer than six minutes later, OSU set up for another set piece. This time, Rodriguez scored the goal after passes from Woodard and Marlo Zoller gave her a shot from 22 yards out.
For the remainder of the match, the Cowgirls dominated the Bluejays (3-5) but could not score.
In the second half, OSU outshot Creighton 13-5.
With the victory, the Cowgirls shut out an opponent for the fifth time this season.
