Lynch’s late goal not enough as Mountaineers fall to No. 15 Oklahoma State

WVU Women's Soccer

The Cowgirls netted their first just 13 minutes into the game when Kim Rodriguez netted the third of her season. They followed it up just 15 minutes later, when Olyvia Dowell’s ball was finished by Grace Yochum, giving Oklahoma State a 2-0 lead into halftime.

“[I’m] very frustrated that we conceded that early goal,” said West Virginia head coach Nikki Izzo-Brown. “I don’t think that the first half was our best performance, I thought we turned it around in the second half.”

The Mountaineers ramped up the pressure out of halftime with an aggressive attack that put 8 shots on goal in the second half.

It wouldn’t be until the 83rd minute that the Mountaineers would finally score, when Juliana Lynch took a shot from outside of the box for the score.

While the Mountaineers showed progress in the second half, Izzo-Brown was still unhappy with the result.

“You know, that’s one to really be happy for and to move forward for Sunday, but we’ve got to win some games here,” she said.

The Mountaineers return to the pitch on Sunday at 3 p.m. when they face Oklahoma at home.
