IOWA CITY, Iowa – The University of Iowa women’s soccer team drew with Baylor on the road Sunday night at the Betty Lou Mays Field.
The game finished scoreless as Iowa goalkeeper Monica Wilhelm tallied six saves on the night, five of which came in the first half. That total marks a new single game high for Iowa this season.
The Bears pressed the Hawkeyes with an 11-4 advantage in shots, but the Iowa defense held firm to secure its third clean sheet of the season.
Freshman Morgan Lietz and graduate student Caroline Halonen combined for Iowa’s two shots on goal for the contest.

“Tonight was a good lesson for our team to learn from. We were very slow to begin the game after the weather delay and fortunate to not be down a couple of goals early, but I’m proud of how we played both tactically and competitively in the second half and seemed to get stronger as the game wore on. As a group we have to find ways to be focused on the little details needed to succeed for 90 minutes.”
- 90 TRACKER: Hailey Rydberg (2) and Samantha Cary (2) played all 90 minutes of Sunday’s game. Sara Wheaton (4) Brooklyn Woods (3), Josie Durr, and Rielee Fetty have each played the entirety of at least one game this season.
