Lions fall at home to Nebraska-Omaha

Joplin, Mo. - The Lions watched their two best scoring opportunities go by in the second half and fell to the visiting Mavericks of Nebraska-Omaha, 1-0.

Southern's best chances to score came at the 33:25 and 31:25 marks in the second half as the Mavericks goalkeeper made a diving play on two separate cross passes leaving the net open but the Lions couldn't capitalize.

The Lions' junior midfielder Shannon Kuhn, sophomore defender Corinne Tebbs, and junior forward Michelle Dimza recorded all three shots on goal.

The loss drops Missouri Southern to 2-4-1 overall and 2-2-1 in the MIAA.
