ST. LOUIS - Saint Louis staged a second-half rally, receiving goals from Tori Lycett and Corrine Murphy, but Missouri State held on for a 4-2 field hockey victory Friday afternoon at Soccer Park in Fenton, Mo.

The Billikens (0-6), who were trailing 4-0, did not give up and got a score from Lycett at 40:03, finishing a Lexie Lindblad pass for Lycett's team-high-tying third goal of the season.

A little more than five minutes later, SLU pulled it to 4-2 on Murphy's first career goal. Laken Gehris earned an assist on the play.

Missouri State goalie Andrea Bain held SLU scoreless the rest of the way, including stopping a Gehris penalty shot in the final minute of action.

MSU (1-3) scored three times in the first half, and once again early in the second session. Olivia Nicotera scored twice for the Bears, while Sydney Richelieu notched a goal and an assist.

Saint Louis returns to action Sunday, Sept. 9, when it hosts Georgetown at Soccer Park. First whistle is scheduled for 1 p.m.
