SAN LUIS OBISPO, Calif. -
Baylor (4-3) soccer suffered its first scoreless game of the season as they lost 1-0 to No. 23 Cal Poly (8-0) Saturday at the Cal Poly Invitational.
The game was held scoreless until the 39th minute when Cal Poly freshman forward Kelsey Carroll slipped the ball past Baylor goalkeeper Monica Housden. Carroll received a pass from teammate Sharon Day and placed the ball in the left corner from 10 yards out to give the Mustangs a 1-0 advantage. It was Carroll's third goal of the season and second game-winning goal.
The Bears had a golden opportunity to get on the board early when sophomore midfielder Tiffany Boshers blasted a shot from 20 yards out past Cal Poly goalkeeper Greta Shirdon in the 24th minute. The ball deflected off the goal post and was covered up by Shirdon.
Shirdon recorded her second shutout of the season only being challenged five times by Baylor.
The Bears return to action on Sunday, as they take on Air Force (4-2) in the final game of the Cal Poly Invitational at 3 p.m. CT.
