Sophomore Lindsey Johnson did not want to wait any longer for Baylor's first goal of the season, as the sophomore scored in the second minute of play to help lead the Bears (1-2-0 overall) to a 3-0 win over Presbyterian (0-2-0 overall) on Sunday at Betty Lou Mays Field.
"I think we started out strong, especially with the early goal," head coach Marci Jobson said. "This is a step in the right direction for our girls and I am really proud of the effort they gave today."
The game marked the first career win for Jobson, who is in her first season with the Bears.
Baylor got the only goal it would need in the second minute, as freshman Christine Clark sent a corner kick into the center of the box that found Lindsey Johnson rising above the pack to knock in the header for a 1-0 lead.
The Bears continued to apply pressure throughout the rest of the half, peppering the Blue Hose goal with eight shots.
The second half went much the same way as the first, as Baylor forced Presbyterian goalkeeper Abby Young to make six saves in the stanza.
The Bears finally broke through again in the 80th minute, as senior Andi Fagan received a ball from freshman Staz Salinas and beat the keeper on the far side from 10 yards out for the first goal of her career.
The Salinas-to-Fagan connection would line up again one more time in the 90th minute, as Salinas sent a long ball from mid-field that found the foot of Fagan, who slipped it passed Young for her second goal of the game.
The Bears outshot the Blue Hose 22-3 on the game, with freshman Hannah Dismuke
leading the Baylor charge with four shots and three on goal.
