After a grueling first half with no goals, the Oklahoma State soccer team's forwards came to play.

The Cowgirls defeated Kansas 2-1 on Sunday in Lawrence.

In the first half, OSU and KU had trouble connecting with the back of the net. The No. 18 Cowgirls had only two shots in the first 45 minutes. 

The No. 13 Jayhawks constantly put pressure on the Cowgirls, limiting their possession.

In the second half, OSU (10-1-0 overall, 2-0 Big 12) was the first to strike. After stealing the ball, senior forward Haley Woodard scored off a breakaway.

Sophomore Kim Rodriguez assisted for the fifth time this season after a free kick to senior forward Marlo Zoller in the 67th minute.

Even after the Jayhawks (7-2-2, 1-1-0) were down two goals, they constantly shot the ball, ending the match with 21 shots.

KU's Grace Hagan scored a goal with only 13 seconds left in the match before OSU gained the victory.

The Cowgirls return to Neal Patterson Stadium for a match against Texas on Friday.
