Soccer with the win!

We are officially less than one week away from Mizzou Football’s Thursday night season opener against Louisiana Tech, but Missouri’s fall sports season has already begun as Mizzou Soccer’s 2022 campaign is well underway.

Missouri improved to 2-1 on the young season with a 3-1 victory over Southern Illinois. The Tigers outshot the Salukis by a total of 24-11.

The goals came from junior captain defender Grace Pettet (2:17; 2nd of the season) to take a 1-0 lead, the game-winning goal by sophomore midfielder Leah Selm (9:53, 1st of season), and freshman forward Hannah Boughton (19:03, 1st of season) made it 3-1. Sophomore midfielder Milena Fischer added two assists to the scoresheet and redshirt freshman goalkeeper Bella Hollenbach had five saves in the win.

Here are a couple of goal highlights:

Up next: Missouri will play their first true road game of the season as the Tigers take on Nebraska-Omaha on Sunday afternoon at 3:00 p.m. CST. That’s before No. 1 North Carolina comes to COMO on Thursday September 1st at noon (yes, that’s the same day as Mizzou Football vs Louisiana Tech!)
