Baker girls lose to Nyssa

Nyssa rallied in the second half  Thursday to hand Baker a 29-19 nonleague girls basketball loss at Baker High School.

Baker (1-7) led 11-8 at halftime, but was outscored 21-8 in the second half.

“What frustrated me most tonight was our inability to match Nyssa’s tenacity,” said Baker coach Jenny Mowe-Joseph.

“We couldn’t handle the ball. When you try to dribble through people, or pass through people and they have a hand on the ball you’re not going to get it done.”

Nyssa (9-2) led 5-2 after one quarter in the low-scoring affair.

Then, trailing 7-2 early in the second period, Baker ran off nine unanswered points to take a 11-8 lead at halftime.

Brie Sand led the Bulldogs with four points. Allie Brown added three and Summer Phillips two.

A basket by Whitney Lemmon to star the third quarter boosted Baker’s lead to 13-8. But then the Bulldogs went cold.

Nyssa outscored Baker 21-6 the rest of the game.

Brown led Baker with six points. Phillips grabbed 10 rebounds.

Baker is scheduled to host Pendleton this evening, weather permitting.

Baker split Thursday’s preliminary games. The Bulldogs won the junior varsity game 30-23, but lost the frosh/soph game 42-40.

NYSSA (29)

   Armenta, Contreras 2 2-6 6, J. Ramirez 3 2-2 9, Jensen, Martinez 1 0-2 2, B. Ramirez 2 0-0 4, Clark, Rodriguez 2 4-6 8. Totals 10 8-16 29.
