No. 17 Ranked Mizzou Soccer Takes Out Auburn In SEC Opener

The No. 17 Missouri Tigers women's soccer team defeated the Auburn Tigers, 2-0, on Friday night at Auburn for the squad's first-ever Southeastern Conference win.

Sophomore Kaysie Clark gave the Tigers the lead with a goal in the 29th minute and then early in the second half, senior Haley Krentz scored on an assist from sophomore Taylor Grant to give the Tigers their final cushion. It was Krentz's second goal of the season and Grant's first assist.

The Tigers missed out on more points less than five minutes into the second half when senior Taiwo Adeshigbin missed a second chance shot on goal a few minutes before Krentz's goal.

Redshirt sophomore goalie McKenzie Sauerwein recorded a season-high eight saves.

Missouri improved to 6-1 overall and 1-0 in the SEC, while Auburn dropped to 4-4 overall and 0-1 in the conference.
