Baylor Soccer Tops OK State 1-0 in Home Finale
Ashley York's fourth-minute goal stands as game-winner
WACO, Texas – In its regular season home finale, Baylor put together a 1-0 win over Oklahoma State on Friday evening at Betty Lou Mays Field. The win for the Bears (9-5-3, 2-4-1) was their first in their last six matches while the loss was the Cowgirls' (6-4-6, 1-2-3) first in five matches.
Much like they had been doing earlier in the season, the Bears jumped out to an early lead and the defense guided them to a win. The lone goal of the game came in the fourth minute off a free kick by Larissa Campos from 40 yards out. Ashley York corralled the ball in the box on the right side and fired a shot from 10 yards out into the net. The goal was BU's first in nearly its last 300 minutes of play and was York's first since Sept. 1 at SMU.
A physical game that featured 31 fouls (BU 21, OSU 10), Baylor grinded its way to victory by protecting the 1-0 lead the rest of the way. Goalie Michelle Kloss made two saves in each period as the defense helped fend off five OSU corner kicks and eight OSU shots.
*With her second game-winner, Ashley York moved into a tie for fifth place all-time in game-winning goals by a freshman at Baylor.
*Prior to this game, OSU hadn't lost since Sept. 27 and BU hadn't won since Sept. 27.
*Junior goalie Michelle Kloss earned the win to take over sole possession of second place on the all-time wins list at Baylor with 28.
*With her ninth shutout of the season and 18th of her career, Kloss tied her total from last season, which ranks fourth all-time in BU single-season history, and moved into a tie for second all-time at BU in career shutouts.
*Baylor shutout eight of its 10 opponents this season at home.
*Baylor is now 5-1-0 in its last regular season home game under the Jobsons and has won five straight.
*Baylor is 111-43-19 overall at home and 44-12-8 under the Jobsons at Betty Lou Mays Field.
*Baylor is 9-0-0 when scoring first this season and 8-0-0 when leading at half.
*Baylor has shutout out an opponent 12 times through 90 minutes of play this season.
*Baylor is now 11-6-4 after a loss under the Jobsons since 2009.
*Baylor is now 7-8-3 all-time against OK State and 2-4-1 under the Jobsons, and has won each of the last two meetings.

"[This win] feels great. We've had some unlucky things happen to us the last few games, hitting the post, having goals called back, and last minute goals in overtime. It was just good to come out and play well against a very good team, with a lot of energy from minute one to 90. When we do that, we can play with any team in the country." – BU Co-Head Coach Marci Jobson
Baylor wraps up the Big 12 regular season next weekend at TCU with a 7 p.m. CT contest on Nov. 1 in Fort Worth.
