Midwestern State flipped the script on Central Oklahoma following a productive halftime session Tuesday night at the MSU Soccer Field.
"There was a lot of talk from the upperclassmen at halftime," MSU coach Jeff Trimble said. "They were very focused on being positive and really trying to attack the goal."
What resulted was a two-goal explosion by starting striker Ashley Cottrell in a 10-minute span early in the second half keying a 3-1 come-from-behind win to the Mustangs, who improve to 5-3 on the season.
"It was getting to the point of a lot of frustration," Trimble said. "We generated good opportunities in the last game and we really didn't get a good result. Then tonight in the first, we did the same thing and didn't get a good result."
The Mustangs were coming off of a 1-0 LSC opening loss to Angelo State last Thursday after tallying nine goals over a three-game winning streak. MSU has now notched 12 goals over a five-game stretch.
"We're capable of doing that. We've just got to concentrate on creating good opportunities and things will happen," Trimble said. "We can't count on three goals (all the time), but we can certainly count on working hard."
