No. 3 Baylor Soccer Falls to No. 7 TCU in Big 12 Semifinal

No. 3 seed Baylor fell 3-2 in overtime to No. 7 seed TCU on Friday night in the 2016 Big 12 Championship semifinals at Swope Soccer Village.  The Bears (12-7-1) used two early goals to take a lead but the Horned Frogs (12-5-2) bounced back late in the second half.

BU opened the game with a goal in the ninth minute.  Amanda Hoglund served a cross from the left corner that was tapped in by Julie James in front of the net.  Then in the 26th minute, Lauren Piercy launched a long pass down the right sideline that Hoglund caught up to and beat TCU’s goalkeeper one-on-one to the top-left shelf from 15 yards out for the 2-0 lead.

However, the ball spent most of the second half in TCU’s possession in BU territory.  In the 72nd minute, a Bears foul gave the Horned Frogs a penalty kick that was cashed in by Allison Ganter.  Then in the 74th minute, a corner kick by Ganter resulted in a goal for Faith Carter to knot the game.

In overtime, a 98th-minute corner kick by TCU’s Michelle Prokof was kicked in by Meghan Murphy for the golden goal.
