— Baldwin High School's soccer team kept its season alive here Monday evening.

The Bulldogs won their second game of the season at the most important time. They defeated Coffeyville 2-1 in the opening round of the regional tournament.

"This feels so great," junior Will Nitcher said. "We haven't won very much this season, so it's nice to finally pull through, especially when we need to keep winning to advance."

Baldwin now advances to play at Independence. The game will begin at 4 p.m. today.

The Bulldogs scored the first goal Monday. Nitcher booted a ball on the ground to the corner of the goal with 3:14 remaining in the first half.

Coffeyville tied the game during the middle of the second night. Both teams took several shots on goal during the next 20 minutes.

Baldwin's junior Chris Schrapel dribbled past several defenders late in the game. He passed to sophomore Caleb Michaels, who was all alone. Michaels drilled a kick to the opposite corner of the goal to give BHS a 2-1 lead.

The Bulldogs celebrated the winning goal with 3:14 left. Their defense held tight during the final minutes.

There will be a full story and photos in Thursday's edition of the Signal.
