MNU didn’t strike again until the 61st minute when Luke Pontin received a ball inside the box off a corner kick, giving the Pioneers some much needed momentum.
The Wildcats climbed back into the game in the 75th minute when a loose ball in front of the MNU net when off a Pioneer defender into their own goal.
Riding the wave of momentum, the Wildcats outshot MNU 4-0 in the final five minutes of the contest, but were never able to tally the equalizer.
Baker (17-1-1) outshot MidAmerica Nazarene (13-7-1) 11-6 in the contest.
The Wildcats now await to see whom they will face in the opening round of the NAIA National Championships, set to be held on host campus sites next Saturday.
