The Baylor soccer team keeps their perfect 7-0-1 record at home with a 0-0 draw against Texas Tech on Friday at Betty Lou Mays Field.
Senior goalie Courtney Seelhorst had four big saves, which helped the Lady Bears to their eight shutout of the season.
“Our defense was amazing tonight and Courtney came up big like the captain she is,” head coach Marci Jobson said. “We had our chances and really controlled the last 75 minutes of the game. We just have to be more composed in front of the goal.”
Sophomore forward Vic Hoffman had the most shots on goal with four for the evening, while junior midfielder Lisa Sliwinski had two of the team’s three shots.
Texas Tech’s Jessica Fuston had a straight shot during the 68th minute, but Seelhorst had a big save and kept the game scoreless.
Sophomore midfield Karlee Summey came close to making the first goal in the 89th minute, but the shot was tipped just over the crossbar by Tech goalie Victoria Esson.
Senior Midfield Bethany Johnston also took a shot, but went high over the post during the first overtime.
During the 105th minute Seelhorst gained her final save with a dive to her left, keeping the tie. This game marks the first game of the season the Lady Bears have not scored.
