Baker wrestlers fall

Baker couldn't overcome five forfeits Thursday, dropping a Greater Oregon League wrestling match to La Grande 48-25 on the Tiger mats.

"The kids had to get in there and fight for every team point," said Baker coach Brandon Young.

Baker trailed 24-0 before any matches were wrestled.

"We are missing two of those five weights," Young said. "The rest there is really no excuse for, bad grades is no excuse.

"These kids that let us down have a pretty easy ride. They don't have to face the other team when they are down by 24 points."

Young said La Grande shifted its lineup to "try and blow out the Bulldogs. Then La Grande wanted to wrestle exhibition matches before the dual, to try to wear our kids down. It was a late night for the Bulldogs."

On the mats, Sam Pearson got Baker started at 182 pounds with a first-round pin.

Henry Shaw lost at 220 in overtime.

"He duked it out with Jim Costigan at 220," Young said. "The score was tied 2-2 going into sudden victory overtime. Shaw had a couple of nice takedown attempts but couldn't quite finish them and lost 4-2. He gave it his all and everyone was impressed with the effort he made."

Heavyweight Tyson Walton earned a second-round pin.

He continues to dominate," Young said.

"He snapped La Grande's Gunnar Long down for a quick takedown in the first round. Then in the second round pinned Long with a cradle."

At 152, Chaz Lowry trailed 8-4 with 15 seconds left. He then hit a roll taking La Grande's Anthony Baldwin to his back for a two-point reversal and three-point nearfall to win 9-8.

Colton Eubanks (170) returned to the mats for the first time since the Grant Union tournament in December due to an injury sustained during the football season.

Eubanks dominated his opponent, winning 10-0.
