STILLWATER, Okla. - Ashley Noah became the all-time career saves leader in Big 12 Conference and Baylor soccer history on Saturday as Baylor dropped its third consecutive league match, 2-1, against No. 22 Oklahoma State in Stillwater, Okla.
Entering the contest, Noah needed just three saves to match the Big 12 and Baylor record that was formerly held by Baylor graduate Dawn Greathouse. Allowing just one goal in 73-plus minutes of work, Noah collected seven saves to pass Greathouse (397 saves) and became the Big 12 and Baylor record-holder for career saves with 401.
Despite Noah's career achievement, the Bears suffered their fifth loss of the season after Oklahoma State tallied two unanswered goals in the second half and fell to 6-5-2.
Baylor's Jessica Hutton scored her fifth goal of the season in the game's 58t h minute, but the lead would not last long as the Cowgirls retaliated with a Yolanda Odenyo goal in the 66t h minute and an Adriane Radtke goal in the 78t h minute.
Saturday's game marked the second straight game that Baylor has surrendered a lead and suffered a loss on the road.
The Bears were out-shot in the contest, 26-6, and has 24 fouls compared to Oklahoma State's 11. Among Baylor's 24 fouls were four yellow cards.
Baylor was held without a corner kick for the first time this season while the Cowgirls took 13 on the night.
Baylor returns home next weekend as they welcome Colorado and Texas for two night contests on Oct. 12 and Oct. 14, respectively. Both games are scheduled to begin at 7:00 p.m.
