Ags drop Baylor, 6-0

The No. 12 Texas A&M soccer team got revenge for four consecutive losses to Baylor by stomping the Bears 6-0 at the Aggie Soccer Complex Sunday night.
While five different Aggies scored goals in the game, it was the forwards that led the way for A&M by keeping Baylor goalkeeper Stephanie Dempsey under fire.
Senior forward Nicky Thrasher scored a goal on eight shots and added an assist, but more importantly, the Hermann Award nominee got her first win against the Bears.
“It’s just one of those games,” Thrasher said. “With the talent we have this year, we said we are not going to let them beat us. We took our anger out on them, and it shows on the scoreboard.”
Freshman forward Linsey Johnson added five more shots, scoring a goal and two assists.
For the first 17 minutes, the game was played almost entirely in the middle of the field with neither team able to mount an attack.
A&M got on the board first when junior forward Heather Ragsdale tried a shot from the left side of the goal but Dempsey was able to get her hands on the ball. However, the ball bounced back into the goal off of Baylor’s Melissa Humke.
Freshman defender Shannon Labhart scored the first goal of her career to make the score 2-0 four minutes later. The goal came on a free kick from midfield 45 yards out.
Thrasher and Johnson each added a goal before half to make the score 4-0 at the break.
The Aggies kept the pressure on Dempsey in the second half, taking 15 shots and scoring two more goals, while A&M’s defense finished up the shut out.
The Aggies improve to 5-2-1 and 2-0-1 in the Big 12. Baylor drops to 4-6 and 0-4.
Friday’s game with Houston was canceled due to rain.
