WEISER, Idaho — Coach DeeDee Clarke was pretty sure even a sluggish performance was going to be good enough to earn the Baker girls soccer team a win Tuesday.

And she was right — until the very last kick of the match.

The referee called a penalty on Baker and awarded Weiser a direct kick.

A Weiser player converted the kick to tie the score at 2-2.

Then the referee blew the whistle to end the match.

Baker’s season record is 2-0-1.

Clarke said she was surprised not as much by the penalty as by how long the match had continued after the referee signaled two minutes were left.

“It seemed like it went on for 10 minutes,” Clarke said.

Weiser scored first to take a 1-0 lead in the first half.

“We came out a little flat,” Clarke said. “Weiser was pretty fast, and they were getting to the ball faster than we were.”

Weiser’s goalkeeper, though, wasn’t fast enough to stop Baker’s Mackenzie Warner.

Warner scored twice in the first half to give Baker a 2-1 lead at halftime.

On one of those goals, Warner booted a corner kick, then took a return pass and scored.

Baker, which blanked Weiser 6-0 last week at the Sports Complex, was playing its first full match without senior standout Julia Vaughan, who injured her knee during last week’s win over Weiser.

Vaughan’s status for the rest of the season is not yet known, Clarke said.
