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.
