[RV] SMU Falls at No. 25 Oklahoma, 1-0
SMU finishes season 13-7-2, its best since 2006

NORMAN, Okla. (SMU) – The [RV] SMU women's soccer team fell to No. 25 Oklahoma, 1-0, in the opening round of the 2016 NCAA DI Women's Soccer tournament, Friday night. The Mustangs finish their season with a 13-7-2 record, the best finish since 2006.

"It's hard, but in order to win games like this, you probably have to lose some," SMU head coach Chris Petrucelli said. "You have to go through the pain a little bit -- we're feeling it now -- but we'll be back, we'll be better and I think we will get more opportunities in the years to come."

Twenty-fifth ranked Oklahoma (14-6-2) scored the game's lone goal in the 12th minute, as Paige Welch managed to head in a cross from a set piece.

The Mustangs outshot the Sooner, 7-6, and managed more shots on frame, 4-2. Forward Vanessa Valadez led SMU with four shots, two on goal. Freshman Allie Thornton registed two shots, one on goal, while Jessica Cooley posted one shot, a shot on frame.

SMU finished the season with 48 goals and 45 assists. Allie Thornton and Claire Oates finish the season as SMU's top goal scorers, finishing with 10 apiece. Valadez was one goal shy (9) of joining the duo. Valadez, Haley Thompson and Jessica Cooley led the team with eight assists each. Catie Brown recorded 53 saves in 1,986:56 minutes of play, posting a 1.04 goal against average. Senior Taylor Barg led position players with 1,936 minutes of work, logging 18 games with 90 or more minutes played.
