By Jerry Hill Riding the momentum of the five-game winning streak, the Baylor team (5-4-1) opens Large 12 Conference play a few days ago, hosting Oklahoma Condition (5-4-) at 7 p.m. Friday at Betty Lou Mays Area.
"Clearly, you'd like to go that direction compared to other entering conference play, " Baylor mind coach Paul Jobson stated. "I believe the women are simply excited to begin Large 12. I really like the momentum we've. The very first four games were only disappointing due to the end result, but the way you were playing really was good. And That I understood when we stored doing what we should used to do, we'd hit a pace. And we have done that."
Since scoring four goals within the first five games and beginning -4-1, the Bears switched that around by netting 21 goals within the last five and spinning off consecutive wins over Incarnate Word, Northern Illinois, UTSA, Air Pressure and Colorado College.
"I believe it's given many of the more youthful women and also the women scoring goals lots of confidence entering it, " stated senior forward Bri Campos, that has obtained two goals with three assists. "But such as the coaches say, nothing changes, it's another game, one other good chance to obtain better. I believe we'll approach it like we all do almost every other game."
Freshmen Sarah King and Lauren Piercy have taken the final two Large 12 Newcomer each week honours and also have combined for six goals and nine assists. But Piercy will need to sit out Friday's league opener after getting a red-colored card with about a minute left in Sunday's 2- win at Colorado College.
"Should there be an area that we are deep in, it is the front line, " Jobson stated. "So, when such things as this happen, you are able to go onto the next one. Clearly, Lauren is an extremely important bit of what we have been doing. She's come up with lots of excellent achievements for all of us within the attack, so you will see several things we'll miss by not getting her there. But we are training a lot of women and we'll have the ability to slide someone else in."
