Midwest City, Oklahoma – The Rich Mountain Bucks (2-10-3 overall; 2-7-3) squared off with the Rose State Raiders (12-2-2 overall; 9-1-2) on Thursday afternoon. The weather was about the worst combination to be outdoors: wet, cold, and windy. In a condensed match, due to field conditions and nasty weather, the Raiders shutout the Bucks 7-0.
To start the match, Rose State looked to start fast and did. After an unsuccessful shot, #1 Adrianna Schroeder (assist #8 Emily Elliott) found the back of the net in the 2nd minute of the match. Rose State would attempt two more shots and a corner kick before the Bucks would counter with a corner of their own. Adrianna Schroeder (assist #3 Mallorie Lane) would find the back of the net again in the 13th minute to increase the Rose State lead, 2-0. After the kickoff, Rose would fire another shot before Madison Zamudio would attempt a shot for the Bucks. The shot would be wide left. In the 24th minute, #12 April Rose (assist #3 Mallorie Lane) would connect on the third Raiders' goal of the afternoon. Rose State controlled the rest of the half, but came up empty on all attempts.
