Box Score

FORT WORTH, Texas - Freshman forward Missy McConnell scored her first two goals of the year to help give the Bears a 4-0 victory over TCU (2-3-1) at Garvey-Rosenthall Stadium in Fort Worth on Sunday.

The Bears took a 1-0 advantage in the 18th minute with a goal by junior forward Ginny Rosario-Tull. Rosario-Tull pounded a shot into the upper-left hand corner off a corner- kick from sophomore defender Brittani Zonker. The goal was Rosario-Tull's eighth of the season in only the sixth game.

The Bears did not waste much time to score again. Less than two minutes later, McConnell scored her first goal of the season in the 19th minute giving the Bears a 2-0 lead. McConnell barried a shot in the upper-left hand corner off a pass from Zonker. It was Zonker's second assist on the night and her third of the season.

The Bears were held scoreless for 50 minutes until Zonker scored her first goal and third point of the night. Zonker deflected a shot taken by Rosario-Tull giving the Bears a comfortable 3-0 advantage. It was Rosario-Tull's second point of the night and first assist of the season.

McConnell finished things off with her second goal of the night with less than four minutes to go in the game. McConnell scored on a wide-open goal after TCU goalkeeper Katie Buchanan misplayed the ball.

Rosario-Tull has scored at least one goal in all six games of the season. This sets a new Baylor record for consecutive games with a goal. This also moves her into a tie for third for consecutive games with a point. The record is 11 games which is held by Courtney Saunders set back in 1996.
