USAO teams go into OT, men win, women lose

CHICKASHA — OKLAHOMA CITY — USAO’s soccer teams were engaged in close matches Tuesday against Mid-American Christian University. Both went to overtime with the 13th-ranked men becoming victors in a 1-0 decision while the women lost, 3-2.

It took the second extra period for the Drovers to finish off their game. Jack Norman got the winning goal off a corner kick at 108:55.

USAO outshot MACU, 20-7. The Drovers are now 8-1 on the season.

The Lady Drovers saw a one-goal lead disappear in their game.

They gave up the first goal early at 2:45 into the match, but knotted the score on a goal from Brittany Jay at 13:40. The score remained tied 1-1 at halftime.

Taylor Fain put USAO on top 2-1 at 49:23, when she hooked in a goal from the left side.

But MACU tied it more than 18 minutes later, with Michelle Median scoring.

In the overtime session, Kassie Byrd, who scored MACU’s first goal and assisted on their second, kicked in the winning goal from 25 yards.

The Lady Drovers, now 5-3-1, outshot their opposition, 24-20.

Next for USAO is a trip Friday to Bethany, where it will take on Southern Nazarene. The women play at 6 p.m. and the men play at 8 p.m.

Men drop to No. 13

After a loss to conference foe Oklahoma City, the Drover men landed themselves 13th in the country according to the NAIA Top 25 poll that was released Tuesday.

In addition to their No. 13 spot, they are still No. 1 in the conference, according to NAIA’s conference ratings released on Monday.

USAO is still the only school in the Sooner Athletic Conference to be in the NAIA’s Top 25. The OCU Stars sit at No. 26.

The Drover men defeated Mid-America Christian on the road today 1-0 in double overtime.

The Drover women have fallen out of consideration for the Top 25. They were ranked third in the conference on Monday but experienced a second conference loss Tuesday afternoon in overtime at Mid-America Christian.

USAO is scheduled to play Southern Nazarene on Friday night in Bethany. The games begins at 6 p.m. for the women and 8 p.m. for the men.

  • Durant, Westbrook lead Thunder over Blazers in OT

    PORTLAND, Ore. — After two straight losses — one to Utah at home and another to the Los Angeles Clippers the night before — the Oklahoma City Thunder weren't going to give up against the Portland Trail Blazers.
    Shaking off their fatigue, the Thunder overcame a double-digit second-half deficit to beat the Blazers 107-106 in overtime on Thursday night.
    Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook each had 28 points and 11 rebounds in the victory.
    "We needed it a lot," said Durant. "It's kind of like a monkey off our back once the buzzer ended it. It's a good win for us."
