The Basics
Score: Oral Roberts 3 - Indiana State 1
Records: ORU (4-1-2), INS (3-5-0)
Location: Case Soccer Complex - Tulsa, Okla. 

TULSA, Okla. - Two second half goals by Brittney Lawrence pushed the Oral Roberts women's soccer team to its second-straight victory after defeating Indiana State, 3-1, Sunday afternoon at the Case Soccer Complex. 

The Golden Eagles improve to 4-1-2 overall on the season after the win that included 41 shots between the two teams. 

Junior Megan Guico scored her first goal of the season in the 15th minute off a corner kick that was deflected to the top of the box. The San Diego, Calif. native drilled the ball into the back of the net from 15 yards out to put ORU on top early. 

Indiana State (3-5-0) answered the ORU goal 15 minutes later when Elly Freesmeir put in a ball on a would-be corner kick for the Sycamores. 

After the break, ORU took over the match. The Golden Eagles held on to the ball and limited the Sycamore offensive attack. 

Lawrence, a junior, posted her third goal of the season in the 64th minute off a ball played forward by Kayla Keller for the go-ahead goal. She would later put the match out of reach with her second goal of the match in the 90th minute on another fast-break goal in which Maria Stordahl assisted. 

Turning Point
In the 64th minute, Lawrence broke away from the Indiana State defenders to put in the go-ahead goal.
