The Kansas Jayhawks dropped Sunday’s match to the Missouri Tigers 2-1 at Audrey J. Walton Soccer Stadium in Columbia.
Missouri’s Keegan Good scored both MU goals, including the game-winner in the 86th minute.
“Missouri is a competitive, physical and aggressive team,” KU coach Mark Francis said after the match. “I thought the girls competed really well. It’s disappointing to lose it based on how the game went but give Missouri credit. I think we can learn from this and move on. The girls that played today I thought battled extremely hard and I’m very proud of them.”
Kansas led early when super-senior midfielder Rylan Childers scored her first goal of the season in the seventh minute of the match. In the 58th minute, Missouri tied the game at 1, setting up Good's heroics 28 minutes later.
Missouri owned a 16-6 edge on shots during the match, including a 7-2 advantage in shots on goal.
The loss dropped the Jayhawks to 4-2 on the season and ended their four-game winning streak. Missouri improved to 3-2-1.
Next up, Kansas will play back-to-back home games at Rock Chalk Park this week against Kansas City on Thursday and versus Yale on Sunday.
