Oklahoma senior goalie Kelsey Devonshire broke the all-time OU record for saves in the Sooners' 1-1 tie against No. 25 Baylor on Friday night in Norman.

Devonshire collected her third save of the game and the 346th of her career to pass Catharine Wade for the all-time lead. She finished with six saves on the night and also moved into the sixth spot on the Big 12 career saves list with 349.

"It's a great feeling, but it's about the team as a whole," Devonshire said in a press release. "So I've got to congratulate the people in front of me as well who helped me get to that record."

With the tie, Oklahoma is 4-3-3 on the season and 0-0-1 in the Big 12. Baylor is 8-1-2 and 0-0-1.

Baylor got on the board early when Dana Larsen slotted a shot in the lower right corner from the top of the box in the 11th minute.

The Sooners' lone goal came from senior forward Renae Cuellar, who struck for her seventh goal of the season off an assist from Samantha Howell in the 52nd minute to knot the game up.

Baylor outshot OU 23-4 but just 7-3 in shots-on-goal attempts, making the efforts of Devonshire and the OU defense all the more impressive in holding on for the team's third tie of the season.

OU will next take on Red River Rival Texas at 1 p.m. on Sunday. The game will be televised live by Sooner Sports TV on FS Oklahoma.
