Less than 24 hours after mauling Dunbar 15-0, the Ida Baker girls' soccer team had to step up their game against an experienced and savvy squad from Orlando Prep Tuesday afternoon.
The Bulldogs rode the three-goal scoring of Mo Elliott to a 3-0 lead on their way to a 3-2 victory at Bulldogs Stadium.
"It was great to get back into the swing of things," said Bulldogs coach Dave Trepkowski. "They are a solid team, very aggressive. Our girls found out they have to step up their play and play until the final whistle."

Indeed. Orlando Prep scored both of its goals in the final 90 seconds.
"It was eye opening," said Trepkowski. "This was the first test of this kind since George Jenkins (in state finals last February)."
