The Baylor Bears tacked on a late goal to defeat Iowa State 2-1 at the Betty Lou Mays Soccer Field on Sunday. Brittani Zonker's shot from 15 yards out ricocheted off the left post into the net, sealing the game for BU and preventing the Cyclones from a weekend sweep.
"This was a
disappointing loss for us as we didn't come out and execute our gameplan,"
coach Rebecca Hornbacher said. "We didn't create opportunities and weren't as
organized as we were on Friday against A&M. "We have some very important
games ahead of us and we need to refocus and correct our mistakes."
