In Wednesday's quarterfinals, the Cowgirls posted a 2-1 victory over in-state Oklahoma as Big 12 Offensive Player of the Year Haley Woodard scored Oklahoma State's first goal of the contest. Baylor then earned a spirited 2-1 comeback win over Texas, equalizing in the 87th minute before bagging a 98th-minute golden goal.
With nightfall came a 3-1 win for the reigning Big 12 tournament champion West Virginia Mountaineers, who are hoping to go a step further after falling to USC in last year's national championship game.
