BHS soccer sweeps rival Eudora

October 12, 2006

The Baldwin High School varsity and junior varsity soccer teams swept Eudora on Saturday.

The varsity won 4-0 to improve its record to 9-3-1.

"It was the first time we did something different," coach Gus Wegner said. "We had been allowing too many goals. We changed some of our line up around and we shut them out."

The Bulldogs were led once again by senior Fernando Chuery and Junior Dustin Schiller. They each scored two goals for BHS.

The team was happy with their performance.

"It was an average performance," senior Avery Baughan said. "We were solid."

Another improvement this game was the defense.

"Our defense really stepped it up this game," Baughan said. "It was a great confidence booster for them to get a shutout against a quality league school."

The junior varsity team was also victorious by a score of 2-1. The goals were scored by freshman John Grosdidier and Shelby Arnold.

"It was really nice to win a game," sophomore Morgan James said. "It was a great feeling to finally get a win. It makes it all worth it."

On Oct. 4, the Bulldogs traveled to Tonganoxie. The varsity team won 8-2. Chuery scored four goals, while Schiller added two and senior Kirby Flory and junior Grant Schenewerk each scored one goal.

"We started out strong and we played really well," Wegner said. "It was a bigger field so we played very well."

BHS sophomore goalie James Simmons also returned to the team last week after suffering a collarbone injury earlier in the season. Wegner said he played well, but showed signs of not playing for a while.

"Having him back is a nice addition," Wegner said. "He is still a bit rusty, but he is getting stronger by the day."

The soccer teams will see their next action at 4 p.m. today at home versus Gardner-Edgerton at the Baker University North Park field.
