Baker played better, but still not well enough to notch its first win of the season Friday.

The Bulldogs (0-4) led Fruitland at halftime before falling 39-36 in the nonleague girls basketball game at Fruitland.

“The girls played really, really well and showed some great improvement,” said Baker coach Jenny Mowe-Joseph.

“We came out strong and played tough till the end.”

Mowe-Joseph said the Bulldogs cut their turnovers to 17 from the 30-35 they had been averaging in their first three games.

Baker led 8-5 after one period, and 21-16 at halftime. Fruitland then rallied to take a 32-29 advantage into the final eight minutes.

Michelle Birkmaier and Michelle Freese each scored 11 points to lead Baker.

Freese added 13 rebounds and four steals. Birkmaier added three steals and two rebounds.

Erin Bachman had four points, two rebounds and two steals. Abi Smith had three points and five rebounds. Allie Brown had two points and six steals.

Monica Voboril added two points and a rebound. Brie Sand had two points, two rebuonds, three steals and two blocked shots.

Emily Tatlock had a rebound, and Whitney Lemmon three points and two rebounds.

Baker is now idle until Dec. 27 when the Bulldogs host Weiser.
