Soccer Tops Baylor, 1-0
Sept. 13, 2002
TEMPE, Ariz. - Freshman Elizabeth Bogus' second goal in as many home games, propelled the Arizona State (2-1-2) women's soccer team toward a 1-0 win over the previously unbeaten Baylor Bears (5-1-0).
In a closely contested match that saw ASU get off 12 shots to Baylor's eight, the game was deadlocked until the 66th minute. Manya Makoski, another freshman playing in her first home match after winning the FIFA Under-19 Women's World Championship in Canada, sliced open the Baylor defense with a penetrating 10-yard pass that sent Bogus on a breakaway.
Bogus tapped the ball around Baylor keeper Tanya Sena, collected it and swept it home into the lower left corner for the only goal of the match. Makoski was one of five freshmen starting for Ray Leone's Sun Devils that began the game with eight underclassmen.
The Sun Devils survived two scares with under five minutes remaining to hold on to the victory. With just under four minutes to go, Baylor senior defender Tamura Crawley was on the offensive end and unleashed a turnaround volley from the top of the penalty area that went past ASU goalie Kelly Fitzgerald only to rebound off the far post. With just under a minute remaining, Baylor forward Emily Fukuchi found herself unmarked in front of the Sun Devil net and put the ball over the bar off of a high cross.
The game saw ASU keeper Kelly Fitzgerald make 3 saves to Sena's 6. Makoski and Bogus each got off five shots for the Devils.
