The Bears (10-4-1, 3-1-1) needed only one goal to take down the Red Raiders (8-4-2, 1-3-0) for a perfect, six-point road weekend.
Both teams were even after the first period, but it was the Bears who found the back of the net in the second period. In the 55th minute, Amanda Hoglund had the ball in the box and passed left to Julie James for a quick left-footed, straight on shot from 10 yards out to the top left corner for the 1-0 lead that stood.
“I thought we scored a great goal. Defensively, we played great. Texas Tech did a good job in the second half of putting pressure on us. I’m proud of our girls for being road warriors again. Six points on a road weekend doesn’t happen often in this league. This is a good way to enter the home stretch, finally.” – Head Coach Paul Jobson.
Julie James scored on a 10-foot shot in the 55th minute as the Baylor soccer team knocked off Texas Tech, 1-0, on Sunday afternoon in Lubbock. James scored her second goal of the season after taking a pass from Amanda Hoglund. Baylor goalkeeper Sara Martinson notched her fifth shutout of the season.
The Bears (10-4-1, 3-1-1) won their second road match of weekend following a 2-1 win over No. 22 Oklahoma on Friday in Norman. Texas Tech (8-4-2, 1-3) suffered its second loss of the weekend after a 1-0 loss to Oklahoma State on Friday.
Baylor will return home to face TCU at 7 p.m. Friday at Betty Lou Mays Field.
- Baylor women’s tennis swept both the singles and doubles titles at the Under Armour/H-E-B Kickoff Sunday. From Baylor Bears dot com.
At the Hurd Tennis Center, sophomore Elizabeth Profit claimed the singles crown and partnered with junior Theresa Van Zyl to win the doubles draw.
In singles, Profit defeated Louisiana Monroe’s Tiffany Mylonas in the final match Sunday and was 4-0 over three days of action in Waco. She dropped the first set, 5-7, but stormed back in the next two sets, 6-3, 6-2, to take the match and the title.
To open the day, Profit teamed with Van Zyl to capture the doubles crown with an 8-3 victory over Troy’s Nancy Karaky and Alicia Rodriguez. The BU duo was 3-0 at the event.
On the final day of the event, Jessica Hinojosa won another back draw match with a 6-1, 6-0 besting of ULM’ s Madalina Grigirou.
“It was great to see Liz play with mental toughness to win her first collegiate title in the singles. She and Theresa also battled hard to breakthrough in the doubles. Our freshman Jess showed that she has a lot of fight, winning three straight matches in the singles consolation. Really, it was a step forward for our entire team this weekend. I would like to see us continue to build on this early-season progress.” - head coach Joey Scrivano.

- Here’s a good look at Baylor’s next opponent(Kansas)’s gut wrenching loss from Saturday. The Topeka Capital Journal has this story.
“Yeah, I’d love to have that few seconds back, no doubt about it,” (Kansas Head Coach David) Beaty admitted. “But we had to move on with it.”
As Wyman’s would-be game-winner twisted through the air, Beaty said a prayer. When it came up short, his mind quickly shifted to next Saturday’s game at Baylor, allowing no time for moral victories for a football team that still hasn’t won a Big 12 contest — or game against an FBS opponent, for that matter — since Nov. 8, 2014.
“Fighting tooth and nail is not the goal,” Beaty said. “The goal is to go win the game.”
