LINCOLN, NEBRASKA — No. 21 Baylor battled through two overtime periods and ended with a 1-1 draw at Nebraska Sunday night at Barbara Hibner Field in Lincoln.

The Bears took a 1-0 lead in the 27th minute when Camryn Wendlandt passed around the fallen Husker goalkeeper to Halee Sowinski who fired a shot to the back of the net.

Baylor’s lead lasted just shy of 10 minutes, however, as Nebraska evened things up in the 36th minute. Sinclaire Miramontez booted the ball from about 40 yards out that soared into the upper right corner of the goal.

Nebraska outshot the Bears, 13-5, on the night and finished with a 10-2 advantage in corner kicks.

HIGHLIGHTS

  • Halee Sowinski netted her first goal of the season and first since the 2017 season when she recorded three.
