KU soccer trips Baylor


Parker Roberts’ goal with less than 10 seconds remaining in the second overtime sent Kansas University past Baylor, 1-0, in Big 12 soccer Friday night at Rock Chalk Park.

Roberts, a freshman, headed in the goal to propel the Jayhawks to their fifth victory in six games and halt Baylor’s seven-game winning streak.

The Jayhawks improved to 7-5-1 overall and 2-1-0 in league play, and Baylor fell to 7-5-1 and 2-1-0.

“I’m so proud of our kids,” KU coach Mark Francis said. “Even with 11 seconds left on the clock, we found a way to get it done. When you play Baylor, you have to come to fight, and I thought our kids really did a tremendous job of battling today. This is a great win for us.”

The Jayhawks will host Oklahoma at 1 p.m. Sunday at Rock Chalk Park.
