Led by four Dallas Defrees goals, Baker buried Riverside 8-0 in the Special District 7 girls soccer regular-season finale at the Baker Sports Complex Saturday.

The win improved Baker’s league record to 9-1 and 12-1-1 overall. The Bulldogs now await their first opponent in the Class 4A/3A/2A/1A state playoffs Nov. 4. Baker will host the winner of Saturday’s Western Mennonite-Cottage Grove match.

“We’re hoping it will be Western Mennonite,” said Baker coach DeeDee Clarke. “We’d like a little revenge for what they did to us two years ago in the playoffs.”

Western Mennonite nipped the Bulldogs 1-0 on a controversial goal under rainy conditions in that playoff matchup.

Baker, which saw its hopes for an undefeated season go away Thursday at La Grande, rebounded with a flourish Saturday.

“It was good for us to do that after the loss to La Grande,” Clarke said. “Earlier in the week the girls weren’t very happy. We held a team meeting, and cleared the air a little bit. Once they had their say they were back to their old selves.”

Defrees got the ball rolling in the first half when she dribbled between several Pirate defenders and scored from the right side. She added her second goal moments later after receiving a long arching pass from Ashley Shively and left-footing the ball past the Riverside keeper.

Defrees then got her three-goal “hat trick” with a shot from point blank range in front of the keeper.

Shasta Overton then got into the scoring column when she hammered home a rebound of a Defrees shot that had caromed off the crossbar.

Robbie Langrell, who had had a couple of near misses earlier, then beat the Pirate defense to the right of the goal and put Baker’s fifth goal just under the cross bar.

Defrees’ fourth goal, off a feed from Callie Baxter, completed the first-half scoring.

Neither team scored early in the second half, but Baker then broke the ice with two more scores.

Maggie Harlow scored the first goal by caroming the ball off a Riverside defender in front of the net. Kim Countryman added the other goal when she dribbled down the center of the penalty box and put the ball in the lower right corner of the net.

Shively finished the match with four assists.

“The girls looked good; they played well,” Clarke said.

“In the second half we got to play a lot of freshmen and junior varsity players. It gave me a chance to see a lot of what we have coming back next season.”

Baker also won the JV match 9-0. Samantha Overton scored three goals, and Aubree Shepherd two. Marissa Ermovick, Joann Yin, Alison Guyer and Laura Wilson each added single goals.
