The Kansas University soccer team lost, 3-2 in overtime, to top-seeded Missouri on Wednesday in the first round of the Big 12 tournament after MU’s Kristin Andrighetto blasted the game-winner in the 96th minute.

The loss eliminated the No. 8-seeded Jayhawks from the conference tournament and dropped them to 12-8-2 overall, while MU improved to 13-5-3. The Tigers will face Oklahoma State in the semifinals Friday.
