Baker stuns No. 3 George Jenkins in 4A final


From a near impossible angle and while falling down, Monique Elliott snuck a right-footed shot just over the goal line with two minutes remaining as Ida Baker (Cape Coral, Fla.) stunned previously undefeated George Jenkins (Lakeland, Fla.) 1-0 in the Florida Class 4A state final Saturday.

Ida Baker (25-2-4) entered the match ranked No. 29 in the POWERADE FAB 50, while George Jenkins (26-1) was No. 3 with a realistic shot at No. 1 had it won the state final. Not only was the girls' soccer state title a first for Ida Baker, but the first for any school in its county.
