Wildcats advance to HAAC Finals against William Jewell College


LAMONI, Iowa – The Baker women’s soccer team kept its momentum rolling on Wednesday evening when they defeated Graceland University in the Heart of America Athletic Conference (HAAC) Semifinals to move on to the championship game Friday evening against William Jewell College.

After playing a scoreless first half, things got interesting in the second frame.

Ana Linares of Graceland put the Yellowjackets on the scoreboard first when she scored on a ball from Chelsea Phillips in the 67th minute.  Just over ten minutes later, Christine Janssens gave the Wildcats the equalizer in the 78th minute on a ball from Jordan Dolbin.

Two overtime periods later and things still weren’t decided between the conference foes. Baker won the game on penalty kicks 3-2.

The Wildcats (10-5-4 overall) handed Graceland University (15-1-2 overall) just its second tie of the season.

William Jewell College (14-1-2), and the No. 2 overall seed in the tournament tied Baker earlier in the season 2-2 in Liberty, Mo.

Game time is set for 7:00 p.m. View the full box score here
