PARKVILLE, Mo – Freshman forward Krista Hooper came to the rescue for the Baker University women's soccer team with a goal in the 90th minute to tie things up at 2-2 and force overtime, then scored the game winner in the second overtime to help the Wildcats earn the 3-2 win on the road at Park University.

Park struck first with Sydney Patterson scoring in the 34th minute. Then Baker's Shaylynn Eldredge-McMillan got the Wildcats on the board in the 38th minute with a goal of her own.

Bridget Steiner scored in the 79th minute, giving the Pirates a 2-1 lead after she scored on an open goal. She swiftly sent the ball past Baker keeper Rachel Theobald then took her time and set her feet and slammed the ball into the net.

Five minutes into the second overtime, Hooper broke the 2-2 tie scoring her second goal of the game on a header off a corner kick from Shelby Schiraldi. Baker now stands at 3-3-1 on the season, while Park falls to 0-3.

Alexa Fryer led BU with six shots, while Hooper was second on the team posting five total shots. Keeley Atkin had four total shots, with one on goal.

Baker will next take on McPherson (Kan.) on September 18 at 7 p.m. The Wildcats next home game is on Saturday, September 21 against Kansas Wesleyan at 5 p.m.
