The Lobos had three shots on goal and Baylor had six. The Lobos had 11 corner kicks to seven for Baylor and UNM was whistled for 18 fouls to 11 for the home team.
UNM's Liz Lambert had one of UNM's better chances to score and win the game for the Lobos. Lambert sent a blast at the Baylor net with just under four minutes to play in the second overtime. Her shot hit the post.
In the first half, both teams had five shots with Baylor putting four shots on net. The Lobos had no shots on goal in the first 45 minutes. Baylor is now 5-1-1 on the season.
