The Baylor soccer team will play its final two regular season home games of the season as the Lady Bears host No. 11 Oklahoma State on Friday at 7:00 p.m. and Oklahoma on Sunday at 1:00 p.m. Sunday’s match will be Senior Day as the Lady Bears honor Andi Fagan, Carolyn Lynch, Elena Sutherland and Amanda McGrath.
“I am looking forward to seeing how this team bounces back,” head coach Marci Jobson said. “This is our final home weekend, and we want to perform well in front of our home fans, and especially for these seniors who have worked so hard for this program.”
Baylor enters the weekend just two points out of the eighth place spot in the Big 12 standings. The Lady Bears are led offensively by Fagan, who has 10 points (four goals and two assists). Baylor will be looking to bounce back from an 0-2 road weekend in which the Lady Bears dropped a last minute heartbreaker to Texas Tech and then fell to then No. 22 Colorado.
The Cowgirls enter Friday’s match 12-1-1 overall and 3-1-1 in conference play after winning a pair of 3-2 games against Kansas and Missouri this past weekend. Oklahoma State began the season winning nine in-a-row before tying Colorado and losing to Texas A&M, and are now on a three game winning streak. Junior Kasey Langdon has been on fire this season, leading the conference in points (9 G, 11 A) and assists. Senior Yolanda Odenyo leads the Big 12 in goals and is second in points with her 11 goals and 4 assists this season.
The Sooners enter the weekend with a 1-12-1 record and a 0-4-1 mark in conference. Oklahoma snapped its 10 game losing streak with a 1-1 tie of Kansas on Oct. 12. Sophomore Whitney Palmer has scored six of the team’s nine goals on the year. Entering the weekend, the Sooners have been outscored 37-9 on the season.
Friday night will be Breast Cancer Awareness Night with the first 100 fans receiving a pink Baylor soccer shirt. Sunday is Church Bulletin Day, as any person who brings a church bulletin will receive $2 admission.
