Box Score

NORMAN, Okla. - Three unanswered goals by the Oklahoma women's soccer team was too much for Baylor as the Bears dropped their second straight Big 12 Conference game, 3-1, and saw their record fall to 6-4-2 in Norman, Okla., on Thursday.


Senior Pat Roscovius struck first, scoring her second goal of the season in the ninth minute of action to give Baylor an early 1-0 lead. Roscovius' unassisted goal was her first since Baylor first game of the season against Louisiana-Lafayette when she scored the Bear's first goal of the season in the sixth minute of action.




Oklahoma countered in the 21st minute when Courtney Palmer scored her sixth goal of the season to even the contest at one.


The Sooners took their first lead in the 67th minute and continued to build on their lead with the game's fourth goal in the 84th minute. Both second half goals for Oklahoma were unassisted.


"We started off playing very well," head coach George Van Linder said. "Oklahoma was able to capitalize on our mistakes and we weren't able to do the same. We're a frustrated that we let the game slip away, but the only thing we can do now is get ready for Saturday's game."


Senior Ashley Noah worked all 90 minutes and collected seven saves as her record fell to 6-4-2. With her seven saves, Noah is now three saves shy of tying the Baylor and Big 12 record for career saves. The record, 397 saves, is currently held by former Baylor graduate Dawn Greathouse.


The Bears will next be in action as the travel to No. 22 Oklahoma State on Saturday for a 7:00 p.m. game against the Cowgirls.
