ATCHISON, Kan. – With a solid overall offensive performance and a bit of trickery, the No. 13 ranked Baker University football team defeated No. 18 Benedictine College for the seventh straight time on Saturday afternoon in a 38-28 victory.

With the win Baker supplants itself alone in third-place in the Heart of America Athletic Conference standings with a 7-2 overall record and 6-2 HAAC mark.

Baker began the day a little slow with an interception by Jake Morse on the Wildcats first possession. Baker then forced BC to punt, but on its next possession Dillon Baxter fumbled on the Raven 31 yard line and BC took advantage of the turnover and scored on a Cameron Fore run to put them up 7-0.

Baker then settled down with back-to-back touchdown receptions by Reggie Harris of 39 and seven yards both coming from the arm of Morse and that put Baker up 14-7.

The Wildcats entered halftime with a 14-7 lead and Fore ran in his second touchdown of the day with 7:24 left in the third quarter to tie things up.

Then Baker turned the game on its head when senior kicker Steven Stewart lined up to kick a field goal to try and put Baker up 17-14, but holder/punter Bryan Williams took the snap and tossed the ball over his helmet and into the running arms of Stewart.

The former Baker baseball and soccer player then scampered 15 yards down the sideline and scored a go-ahead touchdown to put the Wildcats up, 21-14.

After that point, Baker then scored 17 straight points including an 18-yard touchdown reception by senior Jake Green, an eight-yard touchdown run by Baxter and to cap it off a 50-yard field goal by Stewart to put Baker up 38-14.

Baxter had the finest game of his collegiate career with a team high 156 yards rushing on 27 carries and Morse finished the day 20-of-31 passing with three touchdowns.

Sophomore Preston Schenck picked up his fourth interception of the season on Saturday when he picked off Raven quarterback Bill Noonan.

The leading tackler for Baker on Saturday was Scott Schrag with 11 total tackles and Andre Jolly had four tackles and another sack to bring his season total to 13.

Baker's defense also allowed just 122 yards rushing and just 4.4 yards per carry. The Wildcats collected 30 first downs, compared to just 17 by BC.

Baker fans, make sure to come out to Liston Stadium early this Saturday, to honor all of our football seniors before the 1 p.m. kickoff against Graceland.

STATS: Baker 38 – BC 28
