Baker’s inability to take care of the basketball cost the Bulldogs in the win column Tuesday against Cole Valley Christian of Meridian, Idaho.

The Bulldogs turned the ball over three times in the final minute and allowed the Chargers to rally for a 52-49 victory in the nonleague boys basketball game at BHS.

“This one ought to sting a little bit,” said Baker coach Joel Richardson.

“Cole Valley didn’t get the win. We gave them the win."

Baker finished the game with 23 turnovers, a dozen from the guards.

“Our point guards didn’t do a good job of taking care of the basketball,” Richardson said.

The Baker coach said another key to the loss was Baker’s inability to make baskets inside.

“We missed way too many two-footers, particularly in the first half,” Richardson said.

“We make a few more of those baskets and we build on our lead and aren’t in the kind of situation we were in late.”

Baker led 49-46 with just over a minute left in the game. But the Bulldogs then turned the ball over.

Cole’s Logan Gochnour then hit a three-point basket with 49 seconds left to tie the game at 49-49.

Then, after a Baker timeout with 39.7 seconds left, Cole Valley forced a jump ball near midcourt. The possession arrow was in the Chargers’ favor.

Josh Jardine, who led all scorers with 23 points, then connected on another three-pointer from in front of the Cole Valley bench with 5.5 seconds left.

Then, after three straight timeouts, Baker again turned the ball over to end the game.

Baker rode eight points from Kyle Srack to a 16-12 lead after one quarter.

Mason Cline, returning to action after missing a week due to a wrist injury, added four points.

Jardine then got hot, scoring nine second-period points, to help Cole Valley forge a 26-23 halftime advantage.

Four points from Cline, three from Logan Sand, and two from Clay LeaMaster gave Baker a 32-28 edge midway through the third quarter.

Then, with Baker leading 36-31, Cole Valley scored seven unanswered points to take a 38-36 lead with 9.8 seconds left in the quarter.

Aiden Hayes answered with a three-pointer at the buzzer to give Baker a 39-38 lead entering the final eight minutes.

Baker then built its cushion to five points, 49-44, with 3:02 left in the game. That’s when Cole Valley made its final run.

Baker hosts Mac-Hi in a Greater Oregon League contest Friday.
