Oklahoma spoiled Kansas University’s soccer senior day, 3-0, on Friday at the Jayhawk Soccer Complex.
Despite the loss, the Jayhawks earned the No. 7 seed at next week’s Big 12 championship and will face second-seeded Texas A&M; at 8 p.m. Wednesday in San Antonio.
Friday, OU improved to 7-12 overall, 2-6 in the Big 12 and dropped KU to 11-8 and 3-5.
“Now we are in the postseason, so if we lose our season is over and there is no tomorrow,” Kansas coach Mark Francis said. “Fortunately we have done enough up to today where we still get to play next week. I think the bottom line is we have to come out and play a lot better than what we did today. ”
Kansas seniors Kelsey Clifton, Kortney Clifton and Jordyn Perdue were honored after the game.
“Obviously it is pretty emotional, but it was a frustrating way to go out,” Perdue said. “It still does not take back from what we have accomplished so far this year because we are still in a good position to come out and win next week at Big 12’s.”
