No. 8 MNU dominates No. 12 Baker
Offensive woes were the story yet again on Saturday evening when the Baker Wildcats fell 45-13 to 8th ranked MidAmerica Nazarene. Personal fouls were problems early for the Wildcats, when they stalled two potential scoring drives early in the 1st quarter. “We had two drives going and got personal fouls,” said Head Coach Mike Grossner. “We’re literally shooting ourselves in the foot. Until we stop doing that, we're not going to be a good football team.”
After a scoreless first quarter, the flood gates opened up. The Pioneers scored four touchdowns in the second quarter, one of which was a 90 yard punt return. “That was a knockout play,” stated Grossner.
The Wildcats only touchdown came after Colton Miller intercepted a MidAmerica pass and returned it deep into MidAmerica territory setting up a six yard rushing touchdown for Richie Bryant.
The Wildcats travel to Avila University next weekend, where they hope to pick up their first victory of the 2009 campaign. View the full box score here
