The No. 13 Baker women’s soccer team upset No. 4 William Carey 2-1 to advance to the quarterfinals of the 2016 NAIA Women’s Soccer National Championship Monday in Orange Beach, Alabama.

William Carey’s Savannah Carter put the Crusaders on the board first with an early goal in the sixth minute, assisted by Jamie Holifield.

After the first half, Baker trailed WCU 1-0.

Baker powered back in the second half, first with a header by Katie Hibbeler assisted by Keely Atkin in the 57th minute.

In the 76th minute, the Hibbeler and Atkin duo struck again. This time Hibbeler recorded the assist and Atkin was awarded the goal.

Despite WCU’s aggressive offense, the Wildcats outshot the Crusaders 17 to 15. Baker Goalkeeper Rachel Hunt also recorded eight saves in the match.

Baker will face fellow Heart of America Athletic Conference member No. 12 Benedictine on Wednesday, Nov. 30, at 6:30 p.m.

The Ravens defeated the Wildcats 3-0 in their regular season match up earlier this year.

This is the first time the Baker women’s team has advanced to the NAIA national quarterfinals since 2011.
