Baldwin soccer now 10-1

October 3, 2012

The Baldwin soccer team took a respite from Frontier League play Tuesday with a trip to Perry Lecompton, coming away with a 1-0 victory.

The win, Baldwin’s seventh in a row, improved the team’s record to 10 -1. But it came a little harder than the Bulldogs’ recent easy wins.

Coach Mark Joslyn said Baldwin dominated time of possession but was unable to score until junior Nick Joslyn found the goal near the match’s 60th minute.

“We had many, many chances but Perry was difficult to break down and played good defense throughout,” he said. “Although we were unable to produce many goals, I was pleased by the effort and sustained patterns of attack. Also, I was impressed by the boys’ patience and composure. Perry was able to stop our basic attack patterns so the boys changed to another tactic and this proved more successful in the second half.”

The Bulldogs will return to league action for two games in the coming week. The team will play today at Eudora and return home Tuesday for a match against Louisburg. The varsity match in Eudora will be after the junior varsity match and is slated to start at 6 p.m. The home match against Louisburg starts at 4 p.m.
