Clarksville, Ark.- The Lady Eagles were unable to hold onto a 1-0 second half lead as LeTourneau University scored twice to complete a 2-1 comeback win in Saturday's American Southwest Conference match in Longview, Texas.

After a scoreless first half, Ozarks (4-13-0, 3-8-0) went ahead 1-0 behind a Lori Langman penalty kick in the 55th minute. The Lady Eagles were unable to sustain the lead though as the high-scoring Kirby Posey tied it in the 55th minute. Just as it appeared the match would be headed into overtime, Posey connected on the game-winner in the 85th minute. LeTourneau improves to 6-9-1 overall and 4-6-1 in the ASC.

Ozarks totaled nine shots and four corner kicks in the match. Emalee Pearson had a team-best three shots.

Ozarks will host Concordia University Texas October 29 and UT-Tyler October 31 on Senior Day.
