DALLAS, Texas -- The Baylor soccer team jumped out to an early 1-0 lead but was unable to hold on as SMU rallied for four unanswered goals to claim a 4-1 victory over the Bears in action at Westcott Field. With the loss, Baylor falls to 2-4-1 on the season as SMU improves to 5-3 on the year.
Baylor jumped out to a quick start, scoring only 41 seconds into the game to give the Bears a 1-0 lead. Tiffany Boshers intercepted a pass from a SMU defender and took a shot from 15 yards out that carried over the goalkeeper's head and into the upper left hand corner of the net to give Baylor a 1-0 lead. Boshers' goal, her third of the season, was the fastest goal for Baylor to open a match in school history.
SMU managed to answer just 18 seconds later; however, as the Mustangs tied the score at 1-1 when Kimber Bailey corralled a loose ball and skipped it past a diving Ashley Holder.
Although both teams managed to get on the board in the first minute, neither team was able to score the rest of the first period as the score remained tied at 1-1 heading into halftime.
SMU managed to break the tie in the 54th minute when Krystal Bailey took a pass from Kimber Bailey and lifted a shot into the top left-hand corner of the net to give the Mustangs a 2-1 lead.
Baylor almost answered quicky; however, Boshers' header off a pass from Margaret Kaderli deflected off the post and out of bounds in the 55th minute as SMU held onto the lead.
The Mustangs added a pair of insurance goals as Jenna Lind scored in the 60th minute and Kimber Bailey scored her second goal of the game in the 61st minute as SMU grabbed a 4-1 lead.
Baylor will return to action on Sunday, Sept. 18, when the Bears host No. 2 Portland at 1:00 p.m.
