Ashleigh Ellenwood's goal in the 88th minute gave No. 23 Arkansas a 2-1 win over Oklahoma State Sunday night.

A record-breaking 2,268 fans saw the junior's eighth career game-winning goal, which improved the Razorbacks to 2-0 on the season. They defeated Utah State 3-1 Friday.

Arkansas scored only 64 seconds into the match, as Claire Kelley notched her third career goal on a header assisted by Shelby Payne.

Oklahoma State responded with a goal in the 73rd minute, but Ellenwood's goal ensured the game would not go to overtime.

Kelley and Ellenwood are tied for the team lead with four points each in two games.

The crowd broke the nearly 13-year-old attendance record of 1,709 set against South Carolina on Oct. 12, 2001 and the win was Arkansas' 100th victory at Razorback Field.
