Texas soccer holds on for valuable road win over Baylor

Posted October 18th, 2019


The Texas soccer team took a two-goal lead and held on to defeat Baylor on the road 2-1 Friday night in Waco.

Haley Berg scored in the 30th minute and Cameron Brooks doubled the lead almost 20 minutes later for Texas.

Sarah Norman scored the lone goal for Baylor in the 57th minute.


Savannah Madden started in goal for the Longhorns, saving seven shots, including one in the 90th minute. Arguably her best save came in the 57th minute when she tapped a shot just over the bar in the nick of time. That preserved a 2-0 lead briefly before Baylor scored its only goal moments later.

Baylor goalkeeper Jennifer Wandt made three saves on the eight shots on goal she faced. Texas took 12 overall shots while Baylor took 13, five of which were on goal.

With Texas Tech falling to TCU, the Longhorns moved to second in the Big 12. Texas moved to 8-6-0 overall and 3-2-0 in the Big 12 with the win. Baylor fell to 6-4-3 and 2-2-0.
