Oakdale Lady Mustang soccer clubs hosted Downey on Tuesday evening, March 1. In their lone match of the week, Oakdale hosted Downey in a non-conference contest. The varsity girls (3-1-1) tied 2-2 with the visitors.

Assists came from senior midfielder Megan Burke, her second of the season, and senior forward Madison Feuerstein also added her second assist on the young season.

Melissa Ibarra and Kaylee DeRuyter were the Lady Mustang goalkeepers throughout the match, sharing time in the net.
