AUSTIN, Texas - The Bears was unable to hold off Texas' Kelly McDonald's scoring campaign as she scored all four goals in the Longhorn's defeat over the Bears 4-0 Friday night in Austin.
The Bears (6-7, 1-4 Big 12) dropped their fourth straight decision to the Longhorns Friday. Texas (7-6, 2-2 Big 12) now leads the series 5-4-1 since the Bears and the Longhorns first squared-off in October of 1996.
The game was knotted at zeros until McDonald scored her first of four goals on the night in the 22nd minute. McDonald knocked in a shot off teammate Amy Burlingham's cross giving the Longhorns an early 1-0 advantage.
Texas tried to get on the board again before halftime, but was turned down when Baylor goalkeeper Monica Housden denied the Longhorns on a penalty kick. Housden has recorded two saves on penalty kicks this season in as many attempts against her. Housden recorded seven saves in the first 45 minutes, a period where the Longhorns out-shot the Bears 17-3.
McDonald wasn't done with her scoring brigade. She recorded three goals alone in the second half within an 18-minute span to put the game away for Texas. McDonald recorded goals in the 58th, 70th and 77th minutes from assist by Kati McBain, Kelly Wilson and Priscilla Fite respectively.
Junior forward Ginny Rosario-Tull continued her scoring drought firing off four shots on the night but coming up empty-handed on all four attempts. Junior April Robertson and Katie Chicoine both recorded one shot giving the Bears a total of six on the night.
The Bears will continue Big 12 play on Sunday against No. 5 Texas A&M. Game time is set for 7 p.m. at the Aggie Soccer Complex in College Station.
