HOBBS, N.M. – Hoping to pick up their first victory of the season against University of the Southwest here Thursday afternoon , the Wayland Baptist women's soccer team instead had to settle for a tie as freshman Jazmine Zarate scored with under two minutes to play and came away with a 1-1 deadlock.

WBU coach Shiloh Posey felt his team should have won the match.

"We dominated possession, we dominated play, we outshot them…," Posey said. "We hit the goalkeeper in the hands 10 or 12 times and shot two or three over the bar."

That said, the Pioneers (0-4-2) still had to scramble for a late match-tying goal.

The Mustangs (1-3) scored with some 10 minutes, breaking through Wayland's back line and getting a ball past WBU keeper Bailey Stengler.

"We had to keep battling," Posey said.

Finally, with close to 95 seconds on the clock, Zarate broke through and recorded her first collegiate goal on her first shot attempt. Chelsea Beaubouef was credited with an assist, her second of the season.

"Jazmine broke in the back line and was able to put it in," Posey said.

The coach credited Haley Hitchcock with a game-saving play earlier in the match.

"Their ball was headed toward an open goal and Haley cleared it off the line before it went across," Posey said.

While the statistics showed Wayland held an 8-4 shot advantage, Posey felt the Pioneers took closer to 20 shots with Beaubouef and freshman Stone Graham spearheading a well-spread out attack.

"A tie is not what we would have hoped for out of a game that we so clearly should have prevailed in, but we'll obviously take a draw over a loss at this point," he said. "We don't want to be satisfied with a tie in a game like this, but we look forward to using this as a step to Saturday."

That's when the Pioneers return home to start their second three-match home-stand of the season against winless Paul Quinn College (0-5). Play begins at Hilliard Field at 5:30 p.m. and will be followed by the men's match around 7:30.

"It's our last home game before conference, so we'll definitely bring whatever lessons we've learned to this point and try to make it a positive outcome," Posey said.
