Provo • BYU's nationally ranked women's soccer team will not go undefeated this season.
The No. 21-ranked Cougars were surprised 2-1 by unranked Baylor on Monday afternoon in front of more than 4,500 fans at South Field. BYU falls to 1-1-2 with a loss that snapped its seven-match home undefeated streak just three days after knocking off Tennessee 1-0 on the road.
The Bears (4-2) fell 2-1 at Utah Valley on Friday, but made the most of their limited opportunities against the Cougars. Baylor took a 1-0 lead just before halftime when Justine Hovden beat BYU goalkeeper Katherine Snyder with a rocket from outside the box.
