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.

Sophomore defender Kim Rodriguez was a driving force for the No. 20 Cowgirls, helping on offense and defense.

In the 27th minute, following a saved shot from forward Haley Woodard, Rodriguez set up for the corner kick.

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.

 

OSU will travel to the University of Missouri-Kansas City for a match at 1 p.m. Sunday.
