The Tulsa men's soccer team concluded the 2011 campaign with a 2-1 loss to 17th-ranked UAB on Friday night at the Hurricane Soccer and Track Stadium. TU posted a 5-12 record on the season and was 1-7 in Conference USA, while UAB is now 12-3-3 overall and 6-1-1 in the league.

The first 56 minutes ticked off the clock scoreless, but Kofi Gyawu headed in a ball that was kicked into the box by Moses Adeniran to put the Blazers on the board. Just a couple minutes later Corey Albertson dribbled across the top of the box and then drilled in a goal from the left side to tie the game.

With under two minutes remaining in regulation, Babayele Sodade found the back of the net as he punched in a corner kick taken by Chase Wickham for the game-winner.

Tony Rocha led the Hurricane attack with six shots, while Omar Mata added three attempts, and Albertson and Quinn Starker each had two shots. Mason Gist played the first 25:08 in goal and had two saves, while Cody Mumma logged the final 64:52 between the posts.

Tulsa had an 18-10 lead in shots, but UAB had a 4-3 lead in shots on goal, and both teams had seven corner kicks.

TU honored seniors Albertson, Justin Chavez, Blaine Gonsalves and Adrian Klammer, and graduating junior Gist prior to the game.
