A fight on the field forced both Baker University and Columbia College women’s’ soccer teams to play a man down the whole second half during Monday night’s match.

The clash between senior Amber Pickering and Columbia’s Rylee Bruhn happened during the 44th minute, leading both players to be ejected from the game.

The Wildcats ended up falling to Columbia 1-0, bringing their record to 2-2 on the season.

Columbia scored in the 21st minute of the first half, and the ‘Cats were unable to answer for the remainder of the game.

Baker had many chances, though, and kept Columbia’s goalkeeper Erica Ramirez busy as the Wildcats outshot Columbia 16-7. Ramirez had nine saves on the night.

Junior goalkeeper Rachel Theobald recorded three saves of her own, and freshman Krista Hooper led Baker with four shots, three on goal.

Baker will return home at 4:30 p.m. on Friday to take on Concordia University (Calif.) at North Park.
