Kansas soccer falls, 2-1


— Lisa Silwinski’s goal in the 107th minute gave Baylor a 2-1 overtime soccer victory over Kansas University on Sunday.

The loss dropped Kansas to 10-6-1 overall and 2-5 in the Big 12, while the Bears improved to 7-4-4 and 3-3-2.

Silwinski rattled Baylor’s winning goal off the crossbar and into the net on a free kick. The Jayhawks fouled Betsy Kyle just outside of the box, 22 yards away from the goal, setting up the free kick.

In the first half, Baylor took a 1-0 lead on an own goal by the Jayhawks.

It marked the fourth consecutive match that the Jayhawks have surrendered the first tally.

Emily Cressy scored her team-leading eighth goal of the season for KU.

Baylor held a 16-15 edge in shots. Cressy led the Jayhawks with five, including four on goal.

Kansas will look to bounce back at 3 p.m. on Friday when it plays host to Nebraska at the Jayhawk Soccer Complex.

KU needed this game to make NCAAs. TOugh loss, but you can not play a ream puff non-conference schedule and expect to win in the Big XII.

Except they played a great non-conference schedule, so obviously you don't know what you are talking about... They still can make it it to NCAA if they win two more games and at least one in Big 12 Tournament.

yes non-con was very good-the Big 12 is just brutal.
