This is the August 19 OSU Sports Report.
If you didn’t make it out to Neal Patterson stadium on Friday night you missed a competitive exhibition match, that included a high-scoring second half between the Cowgirls and Tulsa.
New forward Gabriella Coleman, a transfer from Mississippi State scored the first goal of the season for the Pokes with a beautiful build up between Camy Huddleston, Jaci Jones and Grace Yochum.
Tulsa then scored back-to-back goals before the scoring was capped off by Kim Rodriguez, who scored a penalty after Jaci Jones was fouled in the box.

Coach Colin Carmichael described the scoreless first half as flat for his team, but the second half was much improved.
“The first half I wasn’t too happy, but it was tied,” Carmichael said. “In the second half, I thought we brought a lot of energy, created a ton of good looks at goal and I thought we were the better team. They hit us a couple times with good counter attacks and scored a couple of nice goals, but I thought in the second half our movement was better and our passes were better.”
OSU kicks off for real on Thursday in Beaumont, Texas against Lamar.
Cowboy Golfers in the Pros
Well it’s been a nice summer for Viktor Hovland as he continues his chase for his first PGA Tour Card. A top-six finish would have gotten it done, but an even par final round dropped him to 11th place.
According to the Korn Ferry Tour twitter account, Hovland now just has to finish in the top-25 at next week’s tournament to earn his PGA card. He has been a staple in the top-25 in most tournaments since he’s turned professional.
On the PGA Tour at the BMW championship, it was a crazy weekend. The course at Medinah surrendered 3 different course records during the tournament on the way to a dominant 25-under win for Justin Thomas.
For Pokes, Kevin Tway and Rickie Fowler both played well on the weekend and finished at 13 under. That was good enough to advance Fowler to the tour championship, but meant Tway missed out agonizingly by a single spot.
Charles Howell III didn’t have a great weekend, shooting just seven under, but he will move on, ranked 28th in the points standings.
And a quick NFL preseason update, James Washington looked great once again as he led the Steelers in receiving with 78 yards, including another painfully under thrown ball from Josh Dobbs that Washington adjusted to. Rudolph was solid, going 10-for-15 for 77 yards.
Justin Phillips made a great play to pick off an under thrown ball against the Rams, he timed his jump and caught the ball without even looking back at the QB.
Daniel Cormier – UFC
And finally Daniel Cormier dominated long stretches of his UFC title match, but ended up getting TKO’d in the rematch bout by Stipe Miocic.
