WACO, Texas-For the second time in three games, the Baylor soccer team dropped a one-goal decision as Oklahoma defeated the Bears 2-1 in action at Betty Lou Mays Field. With the loss, Baylor falls to 4-7-1, 1-4 in the Big 12 Conference as Oklahoma improves to 5-4-1, 1-3 in conference play.
The Sooners got on the board first with a goal in the ninth minute. Savannah Scott got free from the Baylor defense and blasted a shot from ten yards out over the head of Baylor goalie Kristin Weegar to give OU a 1-0 lead.
The Bears answered in the 33rd minute, however, as Tiffany Boshers took a throw-in from Rose Zapata and snuck a shot past the keeper to tie the score. The goal was Boshers fifth of the season as Zapata recorded the first assist of her career.
An Oklahoma goal in the last minute of the half turned out to be the difference maker as Colleen Keester nailed a perfect shot from 20 yards out into the upper right hand portion of the net with only 32 seconds left in the period.
Baylor was unable to bounce back in the second half as a solid Oklahoma defense prevented the Bears from tying the score. Weegar kept the game close for the Bears as the junior transfer, making her first start of the season, made seven stops on the night, including a diving save on a shot from Becky Nelson that kept the Sooner lead at only one.
Jennifer Nichols made one save on the night to record the win.
During the contest, Baylor was whistled for a season-high 22 fouls, one shy of the school record, as Oklahoma was only called for nine fouls on the night.
Despite only holding a one shot edge on shots, the Sooners had a 9-3 advantage over Baylor on shots on goal.
Baylor will look to stop its three game losing streak when the Bears host Oklahoma State at 1:00 p.m. on Sunday, October 10.
