Baylor soccer took a 2-0 win over Wyoming Friday night, handing the Cowgirls their first non-conference home loss in six years, ending the longest non-conference home streak in the country.

The match was moved into the Wyoming’s indoor facility due to the inclement weather and was delayed by an hour.

The Bears were on the board early with a goal scored in the sixth minute by junior midfielder Eva Mitchell, who scored the goal into the left corner of the goal from 18 yards away on a corner kick.

Senior forward Camryn Wendlandt scored the second goal in the 88th minute. The senior leads the team in goals with three so far this season. Wendlandt has recorded a point in 4 straight matches, tying her career best.

Junior goalkeeper Jennifer Wandt completed her first complete game shutout. She recorded 2 saves, both of which came in the first half of the game.

The Bears held Wyoming to a 25-7 edge overall in shots, allowing just one in the second half. Head coach Paul Jobson, now the program leader in career coaching victories, said he was proud of his team.

“Proud of our effort tonight,” said Jobson. “The team showed maturity with all the possible distractions. It is tough to win on the road, and now we have a quick turnaround for Colorado.”

Baylor will end its 11 day journey this Sunday against Colorado. The game is scheduled for 2 p.m. CT in Boulder, Colo. and will air on the Pac-12 Network.
