Soccer Earns First Road Win at Creighton, 3-1


OMAHA, Neb. – The University of Missouri soccer team earned its second win in as many games, topping Creighton 3-1 Sunday, Aug. 20. The Tigers dominated the boxscore, outdoing the Bluejays in shots (17-3), shots on goal (10-3) and corners (6-1).


After an early own goal, Mizzou had to turn the first half around and did so quickly. Sophomore Kylee Simmons scored her second of the season in the eighth minute from classmate Bella Carrillo. The game remained tied at one until sophomore Mallory McGuire buried her first career goal as a Tiger in the 43rd minute.

Simmons earned her second of the game and third this season in the second half. The forward slipped it past the Creighton keeper off a pass from sophomore Elena Zuchowski. The assist was Zuchowski’s second of the day, after getting the helper on the McGuire goal. The final score for MU effectively put the game away.


  • On the first Mizzou goal of the game, Carrillo recorded the first assist of her career on Simmons’ second goal of the season.
  • McGuire, a transfer from Rutgers, earned her first goal as a Tiger in the 43rd minute to put Mizzou up 2-1. The goal would be the eventual game-winner. 
  • Simmons totaled two goals in the game, marking three on the season and five for her career.
  • Freshman Kate Phillips earned her second start of the season, playing all 90 minutes and making three saves for the Black and Gold.
  • Both seniors Grace Pettet and Rachel Kutella were the sole Tiger field players to go the full 90 minutes.
  • Mizzou moves to 2-0-0 in 2023 and remains undefeated against Creighton, 3-0-0. 


The Tigers return home and welcome Nebraska-Omaha to Walton Stadium Thursday, Aug. 24. Kickoff is set for 6 p.m. CT, and the action can be streamed on SEC Network+.
