Kansas State soccer suffered their first loss of Big 12 play against the Oklahoma State Cowgirls. The only goal of the game came in the fifth minute from the Cowgirls.

Forward Olyvia Dowell gave the pass for the early game goal. Crossing the ball across the Wildcat penalty box, Dowell assisted fellow forward Gracie Bindbeutel who put the ball in the net to take the early lead.

The rest of the game went without many opportunities for either team to add to the scoreboard. Only 15 shots came from the two teams, five of those being K-State shots with zero of them being on goal.

K-State leaves the match with a 4-5-2 record on the season. They have a chance to tie their win column with their losses against the No. 19 ranked TCU Horned Frogs on Friday, Sept. 30, at 7 p.m. at Buser Family Stadium.
