Baylor Soccer Loses 1-0 at Auburn

Baylor soccer lost a 1-0 decision at Auburn on Sunday evening at Auburn Soccer Complex.  The Bears (5-3-0) ended their four-match road trip with a tough loss to the Tigers (5-3-0) in a match that featured two lightning delays.

QUOTE OF THE GAME

“Auburn is an outstanding team and very well-coached, but I thought we played well enough to win.  We won every stat except the one that matters most.  It was a great match and I am proud of our girls.  We have to get back at it again this week because Washington is another great team.  We are ready to be home.” – Head Coach Paul Jobson
