Wildcat road rally
September 7, 2006
ATCHISON — As predicted by coach Mike Grossner, the Baker University football team used its defense to beat rival Benedictine College here Saturday. The Wildcats defense created five turnovers that helped them win their season opener 17-13. “Five in one game is huge,” Grossner said. “We turned the ball over once, but anytime you have a 5:1 ratio, you are going to win the game.” The game was controlled by both defenses, but the Wildcats made more big plays when needed. Baker recovered three Ravens’ fumbles and intercepted two passes, one of which almost went the distance for a touchdown. Early in the fourth quarter, sophomore Eric Allen intercepted a Benedictine pass and returned it for a touchdown.
