After a more successful match on Friday, the Roadrunners were firmly brought back to earth at Baylor on Sunday. UTSA fell to a heavy 8-0 defeat to Baylor in their second last non-conference match of the year.
Unlike the last match where UTSA conceded eight goals the Roadrunners were able to hold out in the early going but in the 11th minute gave away a penalty. That allowed Bri Campos to step up and bury the chance, putting the Bears in front.
The UTSA defense had a good passage and in the 24th minute they had a let off as Campos let a shot away, which was saved by the crossbar. But two minutes later it was two as Sarah King sent Lauren Piercy clean through, and she made no mistake with the one-on-one opportunity to double the lead.
Piercy had four chances in quick succession after the goal but she sent them all off target as she wasted the Baylor opportunities. UTSA had one blocked shot late in the half before it was made three in the 41st minute as a Lindsay Burns shot was saved only for Ashley York to tap home the rebound, making it 3-0 at half-time.
The second half saw Baylor start even faster, and three minutes in to the second half they had yet another goal. It came from a Campos free kick which she took powerfully bouncing it in down off of the crossbar.
The next goal came in the 54th minute as Sarah King headed the ball for McKenna Martin, who was left with a simple one-on-one chance to make it 5-0. Just two minutes later the sixth was on the board as Ashley York’s free kick took a deflection and hit the back of the net.
UTSA had no answers and it was seven before the hour mark when King recovered from seeing her shot saved by Katherine Tesno to tap home the rebound. The Roadrunners finally had some chances after that goal, perhaps due to a virtual line change from the Bears but they still couldn’t capitalize.
The final goal came off a set-piece as York sent in the ball and found Katie Millberger who leapt highest to head it home, creating an 8-0 score. UTSA had one more chance off a Channing Machen corner but they could not convert, keeping it 8-0 at the final whistle, their second biggest defeat ever.
