Bulldogs double up Mac-Hi girls


By Gerry Steele

Baker put the “Freese” on Mac-Hi Friday and rolled to a 48-22 Greater Oregon League girls basketball win at BHS.

That’s “Freese” as in sophomore guard Michelle Freese, who returned to action after missing several recent games with a wrist injury.

Freese led the Bulldogs with 14 points.

“It was great having Michelle Freese back,” said Baker coach Jenny Mowe-Joseph.

“Her being out for us hurt our intensity level. She just sparks everybody.”

Freshman Brie Sand and senior Abi Smith also added some spark for the Bulldogs, who earned their second GOL win of the season, both against Mac-Hi.

Sand scored six points and Smith four to help the Bulldogs build a 17-0 lead through the middle of the second quarter.

Mac-Hi went scoreless until Brooke Krahlman hit a pair of free throws with 2:17 left in the first half.

Baker led 19-3 at halftime.

Mac-Hi didn’t get its first basket from the field until the opening score of the third period.

Freese and Michelle Birkmaier then each tallied five points as Baker increased its lead to 35-13 entering the fourth quarter.

Freese then added eight points in the fourth quarter.

“I also thought Emily Tatlock played well off the bench for us, and Monica Voboril did a great job with their big girl,” said Mowe-Joseph.

Even in victory Mowe-Joseph was still not happy with the Baker offense.

“We still struggle running our offense,” she said. “It still is sometimes like a deer in the headlights.”

Sand added a dozen points for the Bulldogs.

MAC-HI (22)

   Fite, Lonai, Krahlman 0 2-2 2, Field 0 1-2 1, Tveidt 0 2-4 2, Am. Wells 1 0-0 2, Av. Wells 1 0-0 2, Rhoads 1 0-0 2, Riedel 0 0-1 0, Vaughan 0 0-3 0, Ureno, Carlson 4 3-8 11. Totals 7 8-20 22.

Baker boys basketball coach Joel Richardson had some very short comments following the Bulldogs’ 79-48 nonleague victory over Vale Saturday at BHS.

“All I have to say is that was pretty basketball,” Richardson said.

“The kids shared the ball well, and did what we asked them to do.”

Baker (13-6) spotted Vale (3-17) a 3-0 lead then ran off 12 straight points to lead 12-3 midway through the first quarter.

Braden Phillips and Dane Bachman each hit a three-point basket, and Mason Cline, Trent Taylor and Dillon Blankenship each added two-pointers. Baker led 20-7 after one period.

The Bulldogs then built their largest lead of the first half, 31-12, midway through the second quarter.

That’s when Vale made its final run at a comeback.

Behind three three-pointers from Logan Skerjanec, the Vikings ran off 10 unanswered points to pull within 31-22 with 2:08 left in the half.

Baker then rebounded to lead 33-22 at halftime.

Baker then outscored the Vikings 46-26 in the second half.

Phillips led four Bulldogs in double figures with 19 points. Blankenship added 17, Bachman 13, and Cline 11.

Baker won the rebounding battle 37-26. Blankenship had nine boards and Phillips seven. Blankenship added four assists and Ben Baxter three.

Baker shot 54 percent from the field (28-of-53).

Baker closes out its home season Friday when they host La Grande in a Greater Oregon League contest.

Baker’s Greater Oregon League boys basketball game looked more like a Bulldog track meet Friday as Baker ran to an 81-29 win at BHS.

Dillon Blankenship and Dane Bachman combined to score the first 14 points of the game as Baker ran off a 17-0 start in the first quarter.

Trent Taylor added a three-pointer before Mac-Hi finally scored on a rebound basket with 4:15 left in the quarter.

Blankenship finished the first period with 16 points, and Bachman seven as the Bulldogs forged a 28-5 lead.

“We set a good tempo and shared the basketball well,” said Baker coach Joel Richardson. “It was pretty basketball.”

Richardson said he would be hard pressed to single out any one Baker player.

“It was just great team basketball,” he said.

Bachman and Blankenship combined for 11 more second-quarter points. Thomas Hamilton added six points, and Braden Phillips five.

Baker led 53-11 at halftime.

“I loved the way we were balancing the attack; people looking for people,,” Richardson said.

“Our defense was really good and our rebounding was outstanding.”

Baker outrebounded the Pioneers 45-21. Phillips led the way with 16, eight on the offensive boards. Bachman had nine rebounds, and Hamilton seven.

Baker dished out 15 assists and had 16 turnovers.

“With this kind of running game you’re going to have a few more turnovers. I’ll take 16 tonight,” Richardson said.

Baker shot 50 percent from the field (27-of-54) and from the three-point line (7-of-14).

Blankenship led Baker with 22 points. Bachman added 20, Hamilton 10 and Phillips 10.
