Central Arkansas scored the first point of the game against Oklahoma State, but that would be the last time they would lead as Abduction was unable to probe a weakness in Ultimato’s stifling zone defense, falling 11-2.
“The wind finally picked up and we were able to run our zone [defense]. Our zone has a calming effect on the team and that allowed us to get into a flow and limit our turnovers while generating some from [UCA],” said Oklahoma State captain Max Barowski.
Central Arkansas gave Oklahoma State a game early on, keeping calm under the zone pressure. However, after scoring to make it 3-2 in Ultimato’s favor, Abduction began to force the disc through the cup — and that did not work. Oklahoma State took half at 6-2 and scored five in-a-row in the second half to finish the game on an 8-0 run.
