BHS boys soccer falls to Rose Hill
ROSE HILL — The Baldwin High School boys' soccer season ended here Monday night in the state quarterfinals.
Baldwin played its first-ever game in the state playoffs on Monday night. The Bulldogs were defeated by last year's state runner-up, the Rose Hill Rockets. Rose Hill beat the Bulldogs 3-0.
Rose Hill scored 15 minutes into the game on a controversial penalty kick. The game remained 1-0 until the Rockets scored again on a throw in, which was headed into the net with 19 seconds left in the half.
Baldwin tried to overcome the two-goal deficit and out-shot Rose Hill in the game. BHS pressed for a goal in the second half and came close several times. However, in an effort to score, the Bulldogs moved defenders up the field. Rose Hill took advantage on one play and got past the back line, scoring its last goal.
The Bulldogs finished their season 14-4-1. There will be a full story with photos in Thursday's Signal. There will also be a story about their regional win over Independence.
