COLUMBIA -- No. 16 Mizzou soccer team fell to LSU, 3-1, Sunday afternoon at Walton Stadium in the home finale. The loss dropped Missouri to 13-5 overall and 8-4 in Southeastern Conference play, while LSU improved to 8-7-4 and 4-6-2.
Mizzou had near scoring chances in the opening minutes but could not find the back of the net. Sophomore Kaysie Clark sent a cross into the box that bounced off the crossbar, while senior Haley Krentz and junior Dominique Richardson both had shots hit the left post.
The home Tigers scored the game's first goal in the 24th minute to go ahead 1-0. Sophomore Kaysie Clark dribbled around a slew of LSU defenders and unleashed a rocket from the top of the box that sailed into the net. The tally was the third of the season for Clark.
LSU responded just 25 seconds later when Victoria Sample sent a 35-yard shot on goal that went over redshirt sophomore McKenzie Sauerwein and into the back of the net. The visiting Tigers then took a 2-1 lead in the 38th minute when Colby Maffei headed home a cross from Fernanda Pina.
Early in the second half, Missouri looked poised to tie the game but the offense could not connect.
LSU scored again in the 64th minute when Nina Anderson headed in a pass from Jade Kovacevic for a 3-1 LSU advantage.
Missouri closes out the regular season on Thursday, October 25 with a game at No. 9 Texas A&M at 7 p.m. The contest will be televised live on SportSouth and streamed on ESPN3.
