Her first came in the 18th minute when she whizzed one past the keeper in nearly the same spot.

Defensively, Ozarks allowed their only one goal of the season when Hendrix’s Alena Davis scored in the 72nd minute. Ozarks totaled 3 shots in the match. The Lady Eagles improve their all-time record against Hendrix to 2-7-1. Ozarks will travel to Georgia this weekend to face Agnes Scott College on Saturday and Oglethorpe University on Sunday.
