SPRINGFIELD, Mo. - The Missouri State women's soccer team (7-6-2, 1-1-1) will play Creighton (3-9-2, 0-3-0) in a crucial conference showdown on Sunday, Oct. 14. Kick off against the Bluejays is set for 1:00 p.m. and the Bears will be giving away prizes in an attempt to set a new attendance record at the match.

"Playing at home is always important," said head coach Rob Brewer. "Creighton will be motivated with their backs to the wall, so it will be a tough match. One result can make a big difference in this league, but it is a long way from being decided."

Bears Run Unbeaten Streak to Team Record 10 with 1-1 Draw at Creighton
The Missouri State women's soccer team got an 87th minute goal to earn a 1-1 tie with Creighton in Omaha, Neb.


With just three matches remaining in the regular season, Missouri State sits in a third-place tie with Evansville, trailing UNI by three points and league-leading Drake by six points. The top-two seeds get an automatic bye into the semifinal round of the MVC Women's Soccer Championship next month.

The Bears enters Sunday's match with the league's longest unbeaten streak having gone 2-0-1 in the last three matches. Missouri State is also undefeated against the Bluejays at home in the last four matchups (3-0-1).

Goalkeeper Chelsea Voet is tied for the league lead with six clean sheets this season, all occurring at Plaster Field. MSU also has an active 497 minute shutout streak at home and have allowed just one goal total in the seven home matches this season.

Molly Brewer leads the Bears in assists this season with five, second-most among Valley players. Rachel Weimer has a team-high five goals, tied for fourth in the league. Both players are in the top-five in points in the league.

Sunday's match will feature prize giveaways to fans in attendance. Missouri State's attendance high to date is 905, set in 1999. If the Bears break that record and reach 1,000 fans in attendance, one fan will win an iPad. Tickets for Sunday's match can be purchased at the gate on game day and, as always, MSU students are FREE with valid ID.
