Kansas’ women’s soccer team has been on a roll in recent weeks. The Jayhawks won their first Big 12 tournament title two weeks ago. They kicked off their NCAA Tournament appearance with a Round 1 victory over Iowa last weekend at Rock Chalk Park. Last Friday night, the team was greeted by a standing ovation at Allen Fieldhouse after trotting their Big 12 trophy onto the court.
It took almost 70 minutes for Kansas soccer to break through, but a quick strike inside the box from sophomore Kailey Lane proved to be the difference between keeping a season alive and going home early.
