The Sooners won their second away game of the season, defeating Tulsa 3-2 on Sunday night in overtime. 

The game started with an early goal in the second minute from Yuuka Kurosaki with the assist coming from Ivanna Rivas to put the Sooners up 1-0. Oklahoma struggled to find its rhythm the rest of the first half while Tulsa put one into the back of the net to tie it up. 

Immediately following halftime, Tulsa freshman Aubrey Lechlider scored to place the Golden Hurricanes up 2-1. The Sooners fought back with scoring attempts from Kurosaki and Kaylee Dao, but it was Ivanna Rivas who got the Sooners back into the game with a goal in the 72nd minute. 

The Sooners took seven unsuccessful shots in the second period and regulation ended in a 2-2 tie sending the teams into overtime. 

Third time proved to be the charm for Dao. After two missed attempts at the goal, Dao put her third shot in the back of the net to give the Sooners the overtime victory. The win improves the Sooners record to 3-0-1. 

Oklahoma will take on the Arizona Wildcats at 9:00 p.m. CT on Friday in Tucson.
