• TCU has outscored opponents 16-3 in the final half of the match.

Katie Lund posted her seventh complete-game shutout on Thursday. She ranks ninth nationally with 0.42 goals against average.
McKenzie Oliver has two assists in her last three games played.

• Baylor has won three of its last four contests. The last three losses for the Bears have come in overtime.

Yazmeen Ryan has put together a solid freshman campaign. The fruits of her labor have manifested over the last couple months of the season. Against Oklahoma, her first period goal stood up as the game-winner. She tallied the overtime winner against Iowa State last week. On the season, she ranks second on the team with 12 points (four goals and four assists).

Since taking over the starting goalkeeper role nine games ago, Katie Lund has helped the Frogs go 6-2-1. She has allowed just three goals on 22 shots for a 0.35 goals against average. All six wins have come via the shutout. On the season, Lund owns an .854 save percentage and a 0.42 goals against average. She has posted seven of the eight shutouts.

Yazmeen Ryan, Kayla Hill, Tara Smith and Allison Ganter have been key contributors to TCU’s 4-0-1 record in overtime contests this season. Ryan was the latest to score in the extra session as her fourth goal of the year beat Iowa State.

TCU played in its fifth overtime game on Thursday night, coming away with a 1-0 victory. TCU has won eight of its last 12 overtime games dating back to the start of the 2016 campaign. The Frogs are 8-1-3 in those 12 games
