Men’s soccer goes 2-0 at Westminster tournament

Soccer Teams Opener

SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – The Baker University men’s soccer team finished off an unblemished opening weekend defeating Westminster (Utah) and Rocky Mountain College (Mont.) by scores of 1-0 on Friday and Saturday.

Odaine Sinclair scored an early goal for the Wildcats on Friday, and that was all the Wildcats would need to get past Westminster in the season opener. Sophomore Matt Bickley made four saves in the contest to record his first career shutout.

“I’ve been pretty confident on who we are and who we think we can be this year,” said head coach Nate Houser. “Coming out after the long trip and getting a goal early was huge for us. They (Westminster) threw a lot at us and were able to cause some problems for our defense."

Saturday’s action saw the Wildcats defeat Rocky Mountain College. Baker got on the scoreboard early again thanks to a goal from sophomore Andy Griffin in the 14th minute. Michael Sheridan recorded his first shutout of the season stopping two shots on goal.

The Wildcats return to action at 7 p.m., on Friday evening against Park University in Parkville, Mo.

Women’s soccer team bounces back after season opening loss

SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – After dropping their season opener in double overtime on Friday afternoon, the Baker women’s soccer team bounced back nicely on Saturday to defeat Rocky Mountain College (Mont.) 1-0.

Senior Ashley Ukena scored the game-winning goal for the Wildcats in the 85th minute when she beat Malin Johansson one-on-one.

“Rocky Mountain got to watch us on Friday, so they had a general idea of what we were bringing to the field,” said head coach Nate Houser. “Jordan Dolbin had a 6’2 girl on her the whole game, and I really thought she played through that nicely. We finally broke through in the last quarter of the game, and I think the girls will be ready from here on out. We’ve got a good local challenge ahead of us on Friday against Park University.”

Kickoff is set for 5 p.m., on Friday in Parkville, Mo.
