JACKSONVILLE, Fla. --- Beckah Brady led the way with two goals while Megan Sherrell tied a single-game school record with three assists as the Baylor soccer team ran its unbeaten streak to five with a 3-1 victory over Stetson in the finale of the Kick Out Cancer Tournament on Sunday. With the win, Baylor moves to 4-0-1 on the season, its best start since the 2002 squad started with a perfect 5-0 record.
Amanda McGrath put the Bears on the board first as she took a pass from Sherrell and tapped it into the goal in the 12th minute to give Baylor the early one-goal lead.
Stetson responded; however, in the 29th minute as Sarah Stock's blast tied the score before Brady could put the game away with a pair of goals.
The Baylor sophomore would put the Bears up to stay as she took a pass from Sherrell and found the back of the net in the 34th minute to give Baylor the lead. McGrath was also credited with an assist on the play as the Bears took a 2-1 lead into the break.
Brady would be responsible for the only goal of the second half as Sherrell connected with her once again in the 70th minute to give Baylor its fourth victory in five games.
The goal by Brady was her third of the season as the sophomore recorded the first career, game-winning goal of her career.
The three assists by Sherrell in the contest tied a single-game school record, matching the mark set by Nikki Hales in a victory over Texas Tech on Oct. 30, 1999.
Ashley Noah picked up the victory in net as the senior made two saves while allowing one goal in 70 minutes of work.
Andrea Garavaglia took the loss for Stetson as she allowed three goals while making five stops on the day.
For the contest, Baylor out-shot Stetson, 15-9, as the Bears held a decided, 7-2 edge in corner kicks.
Baylor will return to action on Friday, Sept. 14, when they travel to Northridge, Calif., to face Cal State Northridge at 8:00 p.m.
