Soccer

Baylor soccer lost a 1-0 decision at Auburn on Sunday evening at Auburn Soccer Complex. The Bears (5-3-0) ended their four-match road trip with a tough loss to the Tigers (5-3-0) in a match that featured two lightning delays. Baylor Bears dot com has game notes and stat of the day.

The game started 30 minutes late due to a lightning delay. Then after just five minutes of play, another lightning delay forced the teams to wait just over two hours before resuming play. Despite leading Auburn in shots (8-3) and shots on goal (5-1) in the first half, Baylor was unable to find the back of the net. Then in the 70th minute, the Tigers received a goal from Taylor Troutman and held on for the win.

“Auburn is an outstanding team and very well-coached, but I thought we played well enough to win. We won every stat except the one that matters most. It was a great match and I am proud of our girls. We have to get back at it again this week because Washington is another great team. We are ready to be home.” – Head Coach Paul Jobson.
