Bedlam Ensues: Sooners' Soccer Upsets Cowgirls

Posted: Updated:
NORMAN, Oklahoma -

It was a tight, hard-fought, crazy game.  You might just call it Bedlam.

The OU women's soccer team upset the third-ranked Oklahoma State Cowgirls 1-0 Friday night in Norman in front of nearly 2,500 fans.

Renae Cuellar's goal in the 67th minute gave the Sooners' all the offense they would need to take down OSU for the first time since 2005.  It marks only the third win all-time against Oklahoma State, opposing 17 losses. 

OSU owned a 20-9 advantage in shots and a 10-1 advantage in corner kick attempts, but despite countless scoring chances and numerous near-misses, OU held on. 

Cowgirls' head coach Colin Carmichael was disappointed with the loss, but credited the Sooners for their effort and victory. 

"You've got to give credit to the Oklahoma kids – they played really hard," said Carmichael. "Once they got the lead, they really sat in and defended it well and made it tough for us to break down. But from our perspective, if you create 20 shots on goal, you've got to score one. That's where we're disappointed."

OU improved to 4-2-1 on the 2012 season, while OSU fell to 6-1-0.  The rematch comes in Stillwater September 30.
