A pair of goals in the opening 24 minutes gave Florida a 2-0 soccer win Saturday over Baylor at the James G. Pressly Stadium.

The Gators’ scoring started in the 16th minute when Pamela Begic put the ball through the box from junior All-American Christen Westphal. Senior Annie Speese’s score six minutes later off a ball from junior Lauren Smith gave the Gators the final margin.

Saturday’s match marked the end of preseason play for the Gators. The season officially opens Friday with a 7 p.m. home match against Miami.
