You could call Penn's Stephen Baker a freshman phenom. Through his first eight college matches, he has scored seven goals -- the second highest total in all of NCAA Division-I. In a USLsoccer.com feature, the two-time Ivy League Rookie of the Week credits his time with the 2010 Menace in helping him prepare for college soccer.
Thomas Ostrander, a member of the 2009 Menace PDL team, was the hero Sept. 28 on "Menace Night," scoring in the 90th minute. His goal gave Drake a 3-2 win over Western Illinois on a night when red-clad members of the Menace Academy filled the Cownie Stadium stands.
All soccer fans are invited to Cownie Soccer Complex on Tuesday (Sept. 28), when Drake hosts Western Illinois in a rematch of a first-round matchup from the 2009 NCAA Tournament. Several former Menace PDL players are on the rosters of these teams.
