KU soccer ties South Dakota State


— Kansas freshman Katie McClure scored the first goal of her career, and the Jayhawks tied South Dakota State, 1-1, on Sunday in women’s college soccer.

The draw moved KU to 2-1-1 and extended the Jayhawks’ unbeaten streak to three games, and South Dakota State went to 1-2-1.

“Today was just the same story of our previous games so far — a lot of chances, but the quality still isn’t there,” KU coach Mark Francis said. “We need to move on and learn from this. Hopefully we’ll show up to training tomorrow and the rest of this week focused and ready to go. If we do those things, we should have a better team take the field against Nebraska on Friday.”

McClure’s goal put KU ahead 37 minutes into the match. The Jackrabbits tied the game when midfielder Madison Yueill scored with just over eight minutes remaining.

KU goalkeeper Maddie Dobyns made three saves and came about eight minutes short of her third straight shutout.

The Jayhawks will meet Nebraska at 7 p.m. Friday in Lincoln, Neb.
