"This was a huge win for us especially being on the road," head coach Bryan Blitz said. "We focused on playing a complete ninety minutes in practice this week and it definitely showed to the final whistle."

The game winner came off a slotted pass to the right side of the box from junior Jessie Crabtree. Bonnick ran onto the ball, turned and sliced past her defender. With the keeper charging, she buried a shot over the left shoulder to break the deadlock.

"Coming out of half, I really wasn't worried about the score," said Bonnick. "I knew it would come. When I got the ball and beat my defender I wasn't sure whether to pass or shoot so I decided to rip as hard as I can and luckily it went in off the keeper."

With five minutes left, Danielle Nottingham collected the ball deep in the right corner. She served a high cross to the far post that carried straight into the top shelf. The goal is her first as a Tiger in the regular season. She had two goals in a preseason match for Missouri against Illinois.

"As a forward, you always want to score," Nottingham said. "So it was frustrating for awhile but, hey, I will take this one. This is a big win for us coming off of two hard losses in a row. This will definitely give us the encouragement to move on past this game"

Senior transfer Paula Pritzen, in for the injured Jessica Gwin, came up big in goal several times throughout the game. In the 58th minute, #20 Hoffmann drove down the right side and fired a shot near post. Pritzen snared and held the shot, keeping the game scoreless.

The Tigers nearly broke the deadlock in the 71st minute. Sarah Thune served an early ball in from the right flank to the on running Bonick. She headed the ball into the upper corner of the far post but the Baylor keeper back tracked and leapt to save and hold the shot.

The Tigers head across the state to Lubbock, Texas, to take on the Texas Tech Red Raiders in a 7 p.m. kick off on Sunday. Fans can follow all the action on Gametracker and Twitter.
