Baylor soccer came away with a 1-0 win at Illinois Chicago on Sunday afternoon at Flames Field. The Bears (5-1-0) used a late goal from Lauren Piercy to top the Flames (1-3-2). Baylor Bears dot com has the story, stats and notes..

Much like Friday’s match at Northern Illinois, Baylor dominated the game but didn’t get a goal until the waning minutes and the goal included help from Piercy. In the 84th minute, and instead of getting an assist for Friday’s game-winner, Piercy dribbled into the box and her shot from 10 yards out hit the back of the net. The goal was enough to stand as the Bears closed out the last six minutes with solid defense and ball control.

“I thought we could’ve done a little better in the first half of applying pressure and finishing our chances. In the second half we did a better job of taking care of the ball and stayed patient until we were able to score. Like Friday, I’m proud of our ability to not get frustrated and keep playing hard until we got the goal. It was a great weekend to come home 2-0 and prepare for another big road weekend coming up.” – Head Coach Paul Jobson.

Our Daily Bears’ Matthew Tennant has more on Baylor Soccer’s weekend games.

Overall, it was a successful weekend in northern Illinois. Next weekend the Bears head to Alabama to take on Samford (1-2-2), a team that tied the only team to beat Baylor this season, Michigan State, in an exhibiton match and lost by one goal to Baylor’s opponent on Sunday, Auburn (3-2-0 as of this writing). These two games should be a nice step up in competition and will be a good test for this young Baylor team.
