BALDWIN CITY, Kan. – The Baker women’s soccer team advanced to the semifinals of the Heart of America Athletic Conference (HAAC) Tournament Monday night after defeating fifth seeded Lindenwood University in overtime 4-3. This is the second win of the season for the Wildcats over the Lions, as they defeated them 2-0 in the regular season home finale.

With the victory the Wildcats improve to 10-5-3 overall and end Lindenwood’s season with a 7-11-1 record. In a game that saw back and fourth action, Baker prevailed in the end thanks to a season-best effort from Jen Sampson.

Lindenwood got on the scoreboard first when Danielle Mayer netted a goal just three minutes into the game. It didn’t take the Wildcats long to even the score. Chelsea Dunn put the Wildcats on the scoreboard in the 15th minute scoring on a header cross from Jen Sampson. Sampson added her first goal of the game just nine minutes later when she blasted a ball from 40 yards outside the box into the upper-right corner of the net.

Second half action saw Lindenwood’s Jenni Tenholder score in the 60th minute to even the score at two apiece, but Jen Sampson yet again answered the Lions goal just six minutes later when Christine Janssens fed her from across the box to give the Wildcats a 3-2 advantage.

The lead didn’t last long.

Hannah McKeon evened the game up in the 71st minute ultimately sending the game into overtime. Jen Sampson closed the game out in the extra frame when she received a cross from Ashley Ukena in the 93rd minute, sending the Wildcats into a semifinal showdown with Graceland University Wednesday evening in Lamoni, Iowa.
