BALDWIN CITY, Kan. – The No. 3 seeded Baker University women's soccer team advanced to the semifinals of the Heart of America Athletic Conference Playoffs with a 2-1 win over No. 6 seeded MidAmerica Nazarene on Friday night.

They will now hit the road for the semifinals to take on Benedictine College next Tuesday, Nov. 6 at 7 p.m.

No. 4 Missouri Valley took care of business on Friday and defeated No. 5 seeded Avila, 4-1, and will take on No. 1 Graceland next Tuesday for a spot in the HAAC Championship match on Friday, Nov. 9.

Baker gave up just four shots on the night, one in the first half and three in the second. That one shot in the first half by MNU proved to be their only goal of the night.

Alexa Fryer gave Baker the lead in the 13th minute with a goal past keeper Becca Skillman, but in the 39th minute Kalyn Pfaff took that one shot for MNU and sailed it past Rachel Theobald to tie things up.

But like she has all season long, Jordan Dolbin helped Baker take back the lead by placing a free-kick from about 18 yards out into the top right corner of the net to give Baker the 2-1 lead and eventual victory.

The Wildcats took 12 shots on the night with five coming from Dolbin and four by Finola Corley.

Baker would like to avenge its earlier 3-2 loss at Benedictine back on Oct. 20 to the Ravens with a win on Tuesday night and a spot for a conference tournament title. The No. 2 seeded Ravens earned a bye on Friday night with its 4-0-3 conference mark.
