STILLWATER, Okla. - The positive is Florida soccer has no other teams remaining on the schedule with "OSU" initials.

The No. 5 Gator soccer team dropped its second 1-0 decision of the weekend, losing in double overtime Sunday afternoon at Oklahoma State's Neal Patterson Stadium. In Friday's action at the Donald R. Dizney Stadium, Florida lost 1-0 to Ohio State.

This weekend started a stretch of seven consecutive Gator opponents that advanced to 2017 NCAA Tournament play.

Sunday's Score

The golden goal came when Marlo Zoeller received the ball from Julia Lenhardt deep in Florida's half. She took a few touches toward goal before scoring on a 14-yard shot to the far post.

The Gators had opportunities Sunday, albeit not plentiful. One of the better looks came with 10 minutes remaining in regulation. On one of Florida's nine corner kicks for the day, senior Sarah Troccoli's header in the center of the goal was tipped over by OSU goalkeeper Hannah Warner for another corner kick.


Florida: 2-2-0, 0-0 SEC

Oklahoma State: 3-0, 0-0 Big 12

Florida now leads the all-time series with Oklahoma State 4-1.

What Becky Burleigh Said

What did you take from today's result?

"It was tough. We were trying to bounce back and for very long, long stretches of that game we had the play. But ultimately, we didn't really create many offensive opportunities out of that possession. That needs to change.

"I told the team afterward, if you want to be resilient, you've got to have adversity. We've certainly have had our share of it. We have two big games next weekend so there's no time to feel sorry for ourselves. Now it is the time to find answers." -Florida Head Coach Becky Burleigh
