Baylor Soccer Downs Iowa State in Overtime

WACO, TX (KXXV) -

Baylor soccer (7-2-1, 1-1-0) picked up its first Big 12 victory in 2017, knocking off Iowa State, 1-0, on Sunday afternoon at Betty Lou Mays Soccer Field.

The Bears kept up its dominant defensive form, outshooting the Cyclones (2-8-1, 0-2-0), 17-6, including a 6-2 advantage in shots on goal and 6-3 edge in corners.

Freshman goalkeeper Jennifer Wandt notched her fourth solo shutout of the season, improving to 5-2-0 on the year.

After staying gridlocked through the end of regulation, the teams switched into extra time, with Baylor coming out firing.

After an offsides call on Baylor in the box just 30 seconds into the overtime period and a high shot over the crossbar by Lauren Piercy, the Bears broke off a run down the left sideline in the 96th minute led by Jackie Crowther.

The junior forward found Piercy running in front of goal in the middle of the penalty box.

With an ISU defender on her back in the left side of the box, Piercy crossed her up, spun to her left, and threaded an attempt through a razor thin gap between ISU’s goalkeeper and the left post, securing the BU victory.

NOTES

*Baylor improved to 15-7-2 in the all-time series with the Cyclones.

*Lauren Piercy scored her second goal of the season and the 15th of her career, marking her 10th gamewinner.

*Jackie Crowther notched her second assist of the season and the sixth of her career, moving her season points total into a tie for the team-leading mark of eight points, tying Aline De Lima.

*Jennifer Wandt finished with two saves, taking her total in conference play to nine.

TOP QUOTES

“When you’re at home, you need to get results. Coming out of Friday night, having not gotten that result, that really put the pressure on today, for sure. We’re looking at schedules ahead of time, and you’re looking at West Virginia and Iowa State in a weekend – that’s tough. I said before the game, I don’t care what Iowa State’s record is, they’re a good team. They’re organized, they do what they do really well, and they’re hard to break down. And you could tell, we had a hard time finding the back of a net. It took a special performance by a special player to make it happen, and that’s what it takes to beat Iowa State. We were fortunate to get that today.” – Baylor head coach Paul Jobson

“Jackie served one in, and the entire time I was like, ‘All right, we’ve got to somehow put a shot on.’ Jackie was even calling for the ball back, just in case, because she knew I was there. I saw the defender kind of reading it like I was about to pass it, so I cut and shot.” – Baylor forward Lauren Piercy

STAT OF THE MATCH

10 – the number of gamewinners in Lauren Piercy’s collegiate career, tying Nikke Hales (1996-1999) for No. 4 on Baylor’s career game-winning goals list
