Baker girls wake up to stop Pirates

It took Baker a half to get its soccer legs Friday against Riverside, but in the end the Bulldogs remained undefeated after posting a 3-0 win in the Special District 7 girls match.

The match was originally scheduled Saturday, but because many of the Bulldogs (8-0-1 overall) were scheduled to take their SATs that day the match was moved to Friday. Coupled with an emotional win at Ontario on Thursday and the Bulldogs started flat at Boardman.

“It was a little rainy, but was pretty good weather for a soccer match,” said Baker coach DeeDee Clarke. “But the girls came out real flat.

“I think the girls were a little tired. But by halftime they realized they needed to pick it up,” Clarke said.

After playing to a 0-0 halftime score the Bulldogs had more spark in the second half.

“We gave them a little pep talk at halftime and they came out pretty pumped in the second half,” Clarke said.

Freshman Maggie Harlow continued her recent scoring streak, taking a pass from Dallas Defrees.

“Maggie nailed it. That got us going,” Clarke said.

Robbie Langrell then gave the Bulldogs a 2-0 cushion after a pass from Ashley Vela.

Baker’s third goal, near the end of the half, came from Shasta Overton who received a corner kick from Ashley Shively.

Baker peppered the Riverside keeper with 22 shots, compared to 10 from the Pirates.

Baker keeper Kristen Hoopes had to make a half dozen saves.

“Kristen had some beautiful saves today,” Clarke said.

The Baker coach said the Bulldogs continue to perform as a team.

“Dallas did a great job distributing the ball. Callie Baxter had to drop back a little on defense today to help support our right side. The whole team was working together,” Clarke said.

Baker also won Friday’s junior varsity match 1-0. Samantha Overton scored Baker’s goal.
