BALDWIN CITY, Kan. – Scoring two goals in each half, the Baker women’s soccer team defeated William Penn on Sunday, 4-1.

“This is very exciting,” Jenna Lattimer said. “We’ve been working really hard. There have been a lot of long practices. I thought we created a lot of opportunities tonight, so it was good to get those four goals tonight.”

Georgia Vernardakis led the team with three shots in the game, but Jenna Lattimer was able to net a game-high two goals, helping the Wildcats to a 4-1 win.

Just 19 minutes into the game, Monique Diaz made a great pass to Victoria Aceves-Power who was able to find the back of the net and give the Wildcats a 1-0 lead.

Before the end of the half, the Wildcats would add one more goal as Aceves-Power was credited with the assist on a goal from Jenna Lattimer off of a corner to extend the lead to 2-0 heading into halftime.

Seven minutes into the second half, the Statesmen were able to get on the scoreboard as Ciara Parrish played a ball into the box that snuck past the keeper and cut the Baker lead in half, 2-1.

After giving up a goal, the Wildcats fired right back just 11 minutes later, as Mattie Chambers connected with Vernardakis to extend the lead to 3-1 in the 63rd minute.

The Wildcats were not done there as Mattie Chambers and Julie Bussen played two great balls to Lattimer who finished her second goal of the game and gave Baker a 4-1 win.

Baker is now 6-3 on the season and 2-2 in Heart of America play. They will be back in action on Oct. 3, when they take on Grand View at 5 p.m., in Des Moines, Iowa.
