Number 10 Baker Mens Soccer Completes Perfect Day at Liston Stadium with Win over Ottawa


BALDWIN CITY, Kansas – Four goals by four different Wildcats lifted the number 10 Wildcats over the Ottawa Braves for the fourth-consecutive year Saturday at Liston Stadium.

Three of those goals came in the second half, as Baker finished the game with 16 shots, compared to Ottawa’s two.

Ottawa also received more fouls than Baker by a 14-8 margin, and two of those fouls came less than a minute prior to Baker goals.

Kyle Young kicked off the scoring in the first half with a goal assisted by Peyton Brown to put the Wildcats up 1-0 less than seven minutes into the game.

Goalkeeper Patrick Rydberg had to make just one save for the entire game, and zero in the first half as Baker dominated defensively, led by defenders Young, Brown, Spencer Atkin and Gonnie Ben-Tal.

The Wildcats took a 1-0 lead into halftime, and took less than ten minutes to add to the lead, as Austin Halsey scored in the 54th minute.

Freshman Carter Yancey got in on the scoring action later in the half, scoring in the 76th minute, giving Baker a 3-0 lead.

The Wildcats still did not relent, as less than ten minutes later, Aiden Kuhls scored off of a Jordan Thacker assist, bringing the game to its final tally of 4-0.

The Wildcats are now 1-0-0 on the season, and on Tuesday will take on the number 25 ranked 0-1-0 Hastings College Broncos.

The Broncos fell to The University of Science and Arts Oklahoma 3-2 Saturday. The last time the two teams met, the Wildcats won 2-1 in 2015.

This also marked a perfect 3-0 day for Baker Athletics at Liston Stadium on Saturday, as number 5 Baker football defeated number 6 Grand View, 36-13, and number 13 women’s soccer shut out Bethany, 1-0.
