Sooners shut out Jayhawks for first Big 12 win

NORMAN — The end of the regular season fast approaching, Oklahoma was in dire need of turning recent strong play into some conference victories.

Friday night at John Crain field, it finally happened with a 1-0 victory over Kansas.

The goal came from a familiar source, Renae Cuellar, who put the Sooners on top with the only tally they needed in the 23nd minute. Assisted by Emily Bowman, it was Cuellar’s team-best 10th goal of the season.

“I thought overall we put together a complete game, in terms of 90 minutes of good performance,” OU coach Matt Potter said. “We managed the game better than we have over the course of the season, and we did the hard part by going a goal up against Kansas, a very good team. I’m really pleased for the group.”

The win propelled OU to 5-7-4 overall and 1-2-2 against Big 12 competition. The victory came against a quality bunch of Jayhawks, who fell to 8-5-2 and 2-3.

Kelsey Devonshire added three saves to secure the shutout.

“I thought the defense was superb tonight,” Potter said. “A lot of the good work came from the players in front of the defensemen, and they allowed good things to happen.”

OU plays its last home game of the season 1 p.m. Sunday against TCU. The Sooners have two road games left, at West Virginia on Thursday and Iowa State Oct. 26.
