Ozark Tigers – 3 (PK’s)
Kickapoo Chiefs – 2
The Tigers opened the scoring this evening in the 2nd minute, by freshman Jayme Braun, sending a message to their Northern neighbor about what to expect. The Chiefs were able to tie the score in the 37th minute via a corner kick, with Megan Etter scoring on the set piece service by Erica Freiert.
The Tigers took the lead again in the second half but the Chiefs were able to rally and tie the score yet again, this time in stoppage time, sending the game into overtime. Two overtime periods were scoreless which led to PK’s. The Tigers won 3-0 when they finished their three chances while the Chief’s first three shooters were blanked.

PS – I was planning on attending but didn’t get home from my business meeting at BPS until almost 6pm this evening. I guess I should have anticipated there might be OT but couldn’t justify the 150 mile round trip for what I thought would only be the final third of the game. I’m sorry I missed it ladies.
