Baldwin Bulldog soccer team struggling offensively
The Baldwin girls soccer team was shut out in two home matches, losing 2-0 on Monday to De Soto and 4-0 and Tuesday to KC Piper.
Baldwin coach Erryn Kindle was disappointed in the effort in the loss to De Soto, but conceded the Wildcats, who beat Baldwin to advance to state last year in the regional finals, were a good team.
There was no such consolation following Tuesday’s loss. The stress of playing a second straight day appeared to catch up with the young team, Kindle said. The team is also battling injuries, losing two key performers in Tuesday’s match and many more slowed with bumps and bruises.
The team’s offensive woes start on defense, as well as the inexperienced team attempting to advance the ball with one kick rather than working the ball forward as a unit, Kindle said.
The team plays today at Shawnee Heights. Kindle said the goal is to keep the match against the 5A opponent competitive so that BHS can gain confidence for a winnable home match Tuesday against Spring Hill.
