KLAMATH FALLS, Ore. --- The Clash in the Cascades women's soccer version showed off how physical the OIT/SOU rivalry can be. In the end, Oregon Tech (8-1) scraped by with a 1-0 victory over the Raiders (4-2-1) in game one.

Oregon Tech has spent a majority of the season blowing teams out except in a back-to-back with Corban earlier in the season. On Sunday, a much more even match for the Owls.

"I think it is always just a rivalry game and that makes it very difficult on us," said OIT head coach Casey Tate.

Tech came out swinging with four shots in the first half. If the Owls had turned several opportunities into shots, that number may have been a lot greater. 

Either way, the SOU defense finally cracked in the 36th minute. As SOU goalkeeper Jessie Selby was attempting to make a short pass to a nearby defender, OIT senior Kyra Mull jumped the passing lane and got behind Selby. The goal was wide-open and Kyra cashed in on a goal for Senior Day. The goal would prove to be the game-winner. 

"Honestly, I think we all scored that goal I feel like," said Mull "We were definitely pushing the line there for a while and it was bound to happen."

The moment showed a disparity in urgency between the Owls and the Raiders. The game was spent with OIT on the attack for all but about 15 minutes. 

"We came in and I am not sure we were 100 percent ready to compete," said SOU head coach Jenni Rosenberg. "We came out a little bit slow to the game. So, tomorrow our plan is to come out of the gate."

The domination in possession for Oregon Tech shows in the shooting numbers. Tech took six shots with four on goal. SOU took two shots and none were on goal.

It is important to note that some of SOU's best scorers were not available through some of the match. Madison Childers did not make the trip to Klamath Falls. Sarah Mauk left the game with a knee injury with five minutes left. Mauk will likely not be available for game two.

Though, the equality in physicality is shown in the foul numbers. Oregon Tech committed 11 while SOU committed 9. 

Head coach Casey Tate told NewsWatch 12 Sports that Oregon Tech has to bring the foul numbers down on Monday because SOU is great at set-pieces. 

On Monday, Oregon Tech and Southern Oregon will do battle again in Klamath Falls. Kick is set for noon. It will be the final home game of the Owls' season.
