Baylor Soccer Falls 2-0 at No. 4 at West Virginia

WACO, TX (KXXV) -

Baylor soccer lost a 2-0 decision at No. 4 West Virginia on Friday evening at Dlesk Soccer Stadium.  The Bears (8-4-1, 1-1-1) trailed early to the Mountaineers (9-1-1, 1-0-0) and were unable to take advantage of any scoring chances.

WVU got on top of BU quickly with a fourth-minute goal by Michaela Abram.  The Bears had a chance to knot things up in the 26th minute, but Sarah King’s shot from the left wing in the box went wide right as she was one-on-one with the keeper.  Five minutes later, the Mountaineers made it a 2-0 deficit for the Bears on a goal by Sh’Nia Gordon.

Neither team scored in the second period, but the best chance for BU was a one-on-one chance in the box for Lauren Piercy straight on with the keeper early in the period.  Unfortunately, her shot went high as she couldn’t get the ball to fully settle in time.

NOTES

*Baylor is 4-4-0 on the road in 2016 and 1-1-0 during its current four-match road trip.

* Against NSCAA ranked opponents, Baylor is 2-7-5 since 2012 (BU’s last win over a ranked opponent was at No. 23 BYU, 2-1, Sept. 1, 2014), 2-16-6 under the Jobsons and 11-57-7 since the program started in 1996. Against NSCAA top five ranked opponents, Baylor is 1-13-0 all-time with its lone win being over No. 3 Texas A&M (2-1 in OT) in Waco on Oct. 12, 1997.

*Baylor lost for just the sixth time in its last 27 matches, dating back to the 2015 season.

*Baylor trailed West Virginia in shots (20-4), shots on goal (7-0) and corner kicks (9-1).

QUOTE OF THE GAME

“First off, credit to West Virginia.  They are a great team, definitely deserving of their national ranking.  Our first half, we didn’t play as well out of the gun as I would’ve liked to have.  We did make some adjustments.  It’s tough to be down 1-0 early.  But credit to my team and their heart and their fight.  They didn’t back down and knew they were in the game until the very end.  They never gave up, never quit.  We had some better chances in the second period with some adjustments.  Would’ve been nice to put one away but that’s the way it goes.  I’m proud of this team and the effort they continually give.” – Head Coach Paul Jobson

WHAT’S NEXT

Baylor continues its road swing with a 7 p.m. CT match at Oklahoma on Oct. 7.
