Homecoming victories

October 6, 2007

Baldwin High School and Baker University both celebrated homecoming wins this weekend, but in much different manners.

On Friday, BHS rolled over Osawatomie 48-0 to move to 4-2 on the season. Baker snuck by rival William Jewell 15-13 on Saturday afternoon to become 3-3.

Baker junior Derek Doerfler booted a 62-yard, game-winning field goal with less than one minute remaining in the contest to give the Wildats their victory. Doerfler also kicked four other field goals in the game.

The Bulldogs cruised to a 48-0 win after scoring 28 points in the third quarter.

"Our kids are excited right now," Baldwin coach Mike Berg said after the game. "We played a good game, but had a few penalties. This is a great way to end the first part of the season."

The Bulldogs (4-2) carried a 20-0 lead into halftime, despite scoring two touchdowns during the two minutes of the second quarter.

After halftime, Baldwin fumbled on its opening possession. The Bulldogs then scored four consecutive touchdowns. Sam Beecher rushed for two of those, breaking 44-yard and 48-yard runs.

Gabe Mason rushed for a 14-yard score, while Jared Hall scored the other touchdown on a 20-yard run.

In the first half, Kyle Smith caught a pair of touchdowns from Drew Berg. Beecher rushed for the other score.

Baldwin will travel to De Soto next week to begin district play.
