Baylor Soccer’s Burns Named Big 12 Defensive Player of the Week

WACO, TX (KXXV) -

Baylor soccer senior defender Lindsay Burns was named Big 12 Defensive Player of the Week, the league announced Tuesday.

The weekly honor is Burns’ first in her career and BU’s first defensive weekly award since 2012 (Kat Ludlow, Sept. 5).  The Yakima, Washington native gave the Bears their 10th Big 12 Defensive Player of the Week accolade and second from a non-goalkeeper (Ludlow, 2012).  Burns is the second Bear to garner a weekly award this season as Lauren Piercy was named Big 12 Offensive Player of the Week on Aug. 30.  Overall, Burns gave BU its 35th Big 12 weekly award and 20th under the Jobsons.

Burns led Baylor's defense to a pair of shutout wins on last week, and added a goal. Last Friday in a 2-0 win vs. Washington she guided BU's defense to a dominant performance as UW managed just four shots, two on goal and three corners. Last Sunday in a 7-0 win vs. Jackson State she led BU's defense to another dominant effort as JSU had just one shot all game.  Burns also scored her second goal of the season. Overall, Burns helped BU's defense allow just five shots, three on goal, and three corners in last week’s two matches.

Burns and the Bears continue play this weekend by opening up the Big 12 schedule at home against Texas on Friday at 6 p.m. CT and traveling to Oklahoma State for a Sunday 1 p.m. match.
