The Missouri Tigers women's soccer team continued its winning ways over the weekend, taking down Alabama by a score of 2-1.

Missouri got on the board early, with junior Alyssa Diggs providing the first goal of the game in only the fourth minute of play. Pia Rijsdijk got the Crimson Tide on the board in the 62nd minute with a low shot from inside the penalty area.

It took until the final minutes to find another goal, but it was a big one for the Tigers. Dominique Richardson got the ball and got past two Crimson Tide defenders before slotting it home with only a minute left in regulation. That would be the final tally of the contest.

The win over Alabama pushed the Tigers to 13-3 on the season, with an 8-2 record in SEC play. The loss knocked Alabama down to 7-7-2 overall and 2-6-2 in the conference. Mizzou will finish their home season next weekend when they host Arkansas on Friday, Oct. 19 at 6:30 p.m. CT, following up with LSU on Sunday, Oct. 21 at 1 p.m.
