Rydberg’s late goal lifts No. 5 Baker past MidAmerica Nazarene
OLATHE, Kan. – The game itself wasn’t always pretty at times, but the fifth-ranked Baker men’s soccer team managed to come through big, improving to 12-0 on the year with a 1-0 victory over MidAmerica Nazarene Tuesday evening.
First half action saw the Wildcats take seven shots on goal before play was halted eight minutes before the half due to lightning. Both teams remained scoreless heading into the break.
Josh Rydberg scored the game-winning goal for the Wildcats in the 70th minute, courtesy of a throw-in from Sean McAlister. View the goal here.
MNU had their chances, but few shots were on goal as Matt Bickley made one key save in the contest to record his sixth shutout of the season.
Baker (12-0, 3-0 HAAC) returns to action on Oct. 15 against Avila University at 7:30 p.m. from Liston Stadium.
