No. 24 Baylor soccer dropped a 1-0 decision in double overtime to Iowa State on Friday evening at Betty Lou Mays Field. The Bears (11-5-1, 4-2-1) had plenty of chances but weren’t able to put away any goals as the Cyclones (9-6-1, 3-3-1) scored in the 103rd minute.
Baylor played an aggressive first half offensively, holding edges in shots (9-5) and shots on goal (5-3), but caught a couple bad breaks on shots that just missed or were saved on great efforts by ISU goalkeeper Lindsey Hendon.

In the second overtime, Iowa State had a good run by Hannah Cade in the 103rd minute and she dropped a nice lead pass to Klasey Medelberg for the finish from 14 yards out in the right side of the box to end the game.
