NORMAN - The 2016 season started in the humidity of Norman, Okla., for 25th-ranked LMU women's soccer and the result was a 1-1 tie against after 110 minutes of action against Tulsa at Oklahoma's John Crain Field.

A pair of penalty kicks resulted in the two goals on the day. Tulsa's Tana Dake scored at 32:40 only to be matched by Maddie Medved's at 35:13.


• The Lions offense came out fast, taking the first three shots in the first 15 minutes, and then ended regulation with a flourish, taking four of the five shots in the final 10 minutes.

• LMU stayed composed despite the physical play of the Golden Hurricanes. Tulsa was called for 24 fouls to the Lions' 13. IN the two overtime frames Tulsa had six to the Lions two.

• Goalie Charles Pruitt had five saves on the day. Transfer Pilar Torres led the Lions with four shots in her debut. Sarah Sanger had three, all on goal.

• On the game, six Lion field players went all 110 minutes, including freshman Ali King in her LMU debut.


"Today's game was a physical match that had a total of 37 fouls between the two teams. It was very hard to get any type of rhythm going. We had a penalty kick called against us and went down 0-1 only to gain a similar call minutes later to tie it up. Any time you go on the road and get a result especially against a good out of region team it is a good thing. We will use the experience to continue to improve and get better. Sunday will be a another tough match-up." -- Head Coach Michelle Myers.
