Baylor Boys Win East Region Soccer Championship With 3-1 Win Over CCS

Saturday, May 1, 2021

The Baylor boys soccer team traveled to CCS for the last region match of the season for both teams.  Baylor rallied from a one goal deficit to win 3-1. 

The first goal was scored by Nathaniel Peace, assisted by Christian Landers in the  48th minute.

Baylor tied the match in the 54th minute when David Danquah scored off a pass from Gui Gragnano.

At  the 72nd minute, Aiden Yelton was taken down in the box and Gui Gragnano scored the penalty kick to give Baylor a 2-1 lead. 

At the 76th minute, Riley Shankle scored off a Ethan Nunes shot.

Baylor claimed the regular season East championship and will have the top seed going into the first round of the state tournament.  McCallie is second and CCS is third.  

"I give a lot of credit to Warren Smith and Tyler Robertson," Baylor head coach Curtis Blair said after the game.  "They do a great job of getting numbers behind the ball and having their players play hard. They are very organized and hard to break down. I was proud of how our players responded after we got scored on. We played much better soccer after the moment."

 Baylor outshot CCS 9-3.

Baylor keeper Zach Ubamadu had four saves and CCS's Eli Honeycutt had five. 

Before the game, CCS honored seniors Lou Caines, Toy Swafford, Rhett Pierce, Eli Honeycutt, Knox Thompson, Andrew Davick and Erick Manirikiza.
