WACO, Texas -
Baylor soccer won its final conference game of the season in shutout fashion 3-0 against the Texas Tech Red Raiders Friday night at Betty Lou Mays Soccer Field.
The Bears (7-9-2, 2-6-2 Big 12) came out playing aggressively in the first half, outshooting the Red Raiders 13-2 while forcing Texas Tech (3-13-1, 2-8 Big 12) goalkeeper Megan Knauss to make six saves in the first 45 minutes. Leading this attack was sophomore Tiffany Boshers, who recorded four shots, along with forward Ginny Rosario-Tull, who had three.
The Bears got on the board first in the 55th minute after senior midfielder Candace Reilly knocked in a shot giving the Bears a 1-0 advantage. Sophomore Brittany Zonker made a pass to Boshers, who then passed to Reilly 25 yards out. Reilly then beat Knauss in the bottom right corner for her second goal of the season.
Baylor did not waste much time getting on the board again as senior midfielder Ryan Lee fired in a shot past Knauss extending the Bears' lead to 2-0 in the 73rd minute. Lee received a pass from Boshers and knocked in a shot from 20 yards out for her first goal on the season. It was Boshers' second assist on the night, the first multi-assist game in her career.
Just 11 minutes after Lee's goal, Baylor continued its scoring barrage when senior forward Kate Hensman headed in a shot to give the Bears a comfortable 3-0 lead. Hensman received a pass from Lee and knocked in the shot into the back left corner of the net. The goal was also Hensman's first of the year.
Defensively, Baylor goalkeeper Monica Housden recorded her seventh win and fourth shutout on the season. Housden only faced five shots from the Red Raiders, recording three saves on the night and improving her season total to 84.
The Bears will continue action on Sunday in their final game of the 2003 season in a non-conference match against the Rice Owls. Game time is set for 7 p.m. at Betty Lou Mays Soccer Field; a pre-game ceremony will honor Baylor's six seniors.
