Tulsa Splits First Games at Hardesty Complex:
In the inaugural game against Western Kentucky, Tulsa fell behind 2-0 early in the game and managed its only score of the game in the second half when junior Brent Bayouth (Sapulpa, Okla.) tallied his first collegiate goal off a pass from freshman Stephen Warwick (Morpeth, England). However, TU failed to find the net again and fell 2-1 to the Hilltoppers.
Against Evansville, Tulsa scored five straight goals, including three in the first half, to top the Purple Aces, 5-1, and win its first-ever game on its new field. Senior Eric Dominguez (Richmond, Texas) scored the game's first goal. Brent Bayouth came off the bench and gave TU a 3-0 lead with back-to-back scores in just over one minute. Redshirt freshman Matt Yeager (Rockwall, Texas) nailed his first collegiate goal in the second half and senior Robbie Aristodemo (Etobicoke, Ontario, Canada) closed out the scoring barrage on a penalty kick. Junior Chris Spears (Tulsa, Okla.) earned two assists.
