CHICKASHA – Donning pink uniforms in the third annual Pink Out Cancer game, the University of Science and Arts of Oklahoma couldn’t get an edge over the Golden Eagles and fell 3-1.
The game ended in a fairly even shot count, with USAO (1-8, 0-3) recording 14 shots, seven of which were on goal, and JBU (7-3, 2-1) notching seven shots on goal out of a total 16 shots.
The Drovers lone goal came as an equalizer in the first half as Jade Ovendale slid one in off a one-on-one battle into the goal.
“The women just have to keep working and learning,” Head Coach Jimmy Hampton said. “We have to get better and win our individual battles.”
Drovers Against Cancer hosted the game and sold concessions and t-shirts throughout the match. Following the game, they honored cancer survivors and caregivers with a special gift.
The Drovers travel to Saint Gregory’s in a Saturday afternoon game set for 1 p.m. They play at Northwood next Tuesday before returning home to take on Texas Wesleyan on Oct. 19. Kick off is set for 1 p.m.
