Baker girls soccer

Baker's Maya Smith, right, hustles to gain control Tuesday against her Nyssa opponent, Cristal Trinidad.

Baker picked up its second nonleague girls soccer win Tuesday, stopping Nyssa 5-1 at the Baker Sports Complex.

Baker (2-4) has defeated Nyssa twice this season by identical scores.

“Our goal was to take more shots and spread out more,” said Baker coach Kristen Rushton.

“These kids are not afraid. We talked at halftime, and the girls really did perform better and communicated better.”

Nyssa scored the match’s first goal 13 minutes into the match. Then it was all Baker.

Goals by Rebecca Daniels, Sydney Younger, Sydnee Pierce and Daphne Thomas gave Baker a 4-1 halftime lead.

Younger added a second goal after halftime to complete the scoring.

Baker’s defense allowed Nyssa just one shot in the second half. Nyssa crossed midfield only two or three times in the half.

Baker returns to Greater Oregon League play Saturday at Ontario in an 11 a.m. PDT match.
