Soccer squad tops OU

September 25, 2006


— Sophomore Jessica Bush's goal in the 68th minute lifted Kansas University to its first Big 12 Conference soccer victory of the season, 1-0 over Oklahoma on Sunday at John Crain Field.

The victory moves the Jayhawks to 6-3 overall and 1-1 in conference play, while OU fell to 3-7 and 0-3 in the Big 12.

Bush put home the only goal of the match at 67:29 when freshman Shannon McCabe made a long run down the far sideline and sent a cross to Bush in the near side of the box. The sophomore midfielder dribbled once and beat OU goalkeeper Jennifer Nicholas with a shot to the upper corner on the far side of the net.

KU will travel Friday to Creighton.
