The Baylor Red Raider boys soccer team traveled to national ranked rival McCallie on Friday for a region soccer match.  Baylor would score two goals, one in each half to earn a 2-0 over previously undefeated McCallie.  

Baylor's Matheus Maia scored in the 8th minute on a long shot to give the Red Raiders an early lead.  

At the 56th minute, Lew Pride scored off a Christian Stophel assist to give Baylor a 2-0 lead. 

"What another great soccer game between our two schools," Baylor head coach Curtis Blair said after the game.  "McCallie’ s coaching staff did a great job having their guys organized and hard to break down. I thought we played timid until we scored the second goal and then we settled down."

Baylor out shot McCallie 8-7.  Henry Hooks and Mats Pokela combined for six saves for Baylor.  McCallie keeper Andrew Prescott had four saves.  

"I have to give a lot credit to our assistant coach Erin Ridley for putting the game plan in place for McCallie,"  Blair continued.  "She got a chance to scout them and did a great job of preparing our guys.  Our back five (GK’s and defender) were brilliant tonight."

Baylor improves to 12-2-2 overall and  4-0-1 in region play. 

McCallie drops to 10-1-1 overall and 4-1-1 in the region.
