After a slow first half, the Oral Roberts women's soccer team fired in a pair of second-half goals to beat Nebraska-Omaha 2-0 on Friday night.

The Golden Eagles didn't manage to get off a single shot in the opening half but Megan Giles found Mary-Kate Halsmer for a goal just five minutes into the second half for a 1-0 lead.

ORU put the finishing touches on the victory in the 78th minute when Ashley Martin rebounded her own miss off a penalty kick and sent it into the back of the net for a 2-0 advantage.

Goalie Helen Erb recorded her fifth shutout of the season as the Golden Eagles improved to 5-3-2 on the year, while Nebraska-Omaha remained winless.

ORU will stay in Omaha to take on Creighton on Sunday at 1 p.m.
