WACO, Texas-Anna Schuch's goal 18 seconds into overtime lifted the Baylor soccer team to a 2-1 victory over No. 22 Texas in action at Betty Lou Mays Field. The win was Baylor's first victory in the series since 1999 as the Bears improved to 4-4-1 on the season, 1-1 in the Big 12 Conference.
"I am so proud of this team right now," head coach George Van Linder said. "We made the most of our chances and were able to come away with a great win."
Texas jumped out to an early 1-0 lead on the Bears with a goal in the eighth minute. Kristen Teter took a pass from Caitlin Kennedy and blasted the ball into the back of the net to give the Longhorns the lead.
The score remained the same the rest of regulation, as neither team could find the back of the net. Baylor's best scoring chance the remainder of regulation came in the 60th minute; however, Schuch's shot sailed just over the crossbar as the game remained tied.
Schuch made the most of her next opportunity 18 seconds into overtime as she struck a looping shot from 20 yards out over the Texas goalie and into the back of the net to give Baylor its first victory over the Longhorns since a 2-0 win at the Big 12 Conference Tournament in 1999.
Ashley Holder had her second consecutive solid game in the net for the Bears, recording nine saves in the win. Dana Hall took the loss for the Longhorns as Texas fell to 5-4-1, 1-2 in the Big 12 Conference. In the contest, Texas out-shot the Bears 22-11 as each team had three corner kicks during the game.
Baylor will return to action on Friday, Oct. 1, when the Bears travel to Ames, Iowa, to face Iowa State in a Big 12 Conference match.
