Baker squeaks past Benedictine for senior day victory
Senior defensive back Madison Morris’ interception with 1:20 left sealed No. 25 Baker University’s 10-7 college football victory over No. 9 Benedictine College on Saturday at Liston Stadium, keeping the Wildcats’ NAIA playoff hopes alive.
Earlier in the fourth quarter, senior Robert Woodall intercepted a pass in the end zone to stall another Ravens’ drive.
The Wildcats improved to 6-3 overall and 5-3 in the Heart of America Athletic Conference to guarantee their fifth consecutive winning season. Benedictine dipped to 8-2 overall and 6-2 in the conference.
Baker’s lone touchdown came in the second quarter when sophomore Connor Stremmel blocked a punt and recovered the ball in the end zone.
