Bulldogs rough up Mac-Hi

Baker football coach Dave Johnson is not a fan of running up the score and causing a running clock against any opponent. But, when his team is clicking on all cylinders it’s hard to tell the Bulldogs not to play hard.

Such was the case Friday in Baker’s Greater Oregon League opener against Mac-Hi at Bulldog Memorial Stadium. Baker constructed a 47-0 lead with 7:03 left in the third period and went on to defeat the Pioneers 47-10.

Any time a team is ahead by 45 points or more after halftime, the clock does not stop.

“By and large I thought we played well in all three phases of the game — offense, defense and special teams,” Johnson said. “We had a great special teams performance.”

Baker did stumble ever so slightly on Mac-Hi’s first series. The Bulldogs forced Mac-Hi to line up to punt, but after a bad snap the Pioneer punter was able to scramble for a first down.

“We kind of had to bow our necks a little there,” Johnson said.

Baker stopped the drive a few plays later when Colten Richards intercepted a Mac-Hi pass, returning the ball to the Mac-Hi 36.

Two plays later quarterback Jesse Brown connected with Ty Everson over the middle for a 30-yard touchdown.The score remained 6-0 until 9:45 was left in the first half. Then Stephen Talbot busted one of his patented runs around end, scoring on a 40-yard gallop. Brown hit Justin Durflinger for the two-point conversion and Baker led 14-0.

Everson intercepted another Mac-Hi pass on the first play after the kickoff, setting Baker up on the Mac-Hi 34. Again Baker needed just two plays to find the end zone. This time Talbot swept around right end for a 20-yard TD.

Baker boosted its lead to 28-0 with 5:57 left in the half when Will Barr burst around left end for a 15-yard touchdown run.

The Bulldogs closed out the first half with one more touchdown, a 13-yard Brown-to-Talbot pass with 46.7 seconds left. Barr’s conversion kick gave Baker a 35-0 halftime lead.

It took the Bulldogs four plays, and 1:15 to add another score to start the third quarter. This time Talbot burst up the middle and bounced outside for a 41-yard touchdown run.

Talbot completed his night with a 7-yard TD run with 7:03 left in the third period. Then the clock kept running.

Mac-Hi managed to score all 10 of its points against the Bulldog reserves in the fourth quarter.

Baker finished the game with 466 yards total offense, while holding Mac-Hi to 239.

Talbot rushed for 155 yards on 10 carries. Brown completed 8 of 13 passes for 191 yards. Barr caught three passes for 107 yards.

Baker (5-1 overall, 1-0 in the GOL) hosts Ontario at Baker’s Homecoming Friday at 7 p.m. Ontario (1-0 in the GOL) is coming off a 63-20 win over La Grande.

Johnson cautioned the Bulldogs about being ready for Ontario.

“We have to stay focused,” he said. “Have a great time with Homecoming, but that’s not really our focus. Our focus is on the football field Friday. We have to look for a win. That’s what’s important now.

“Ontario will be fun. We match up with them pretty well,” the Baker coach said.
