Baker’s task a tough one

“To be the man, you’ve got to beat the man.” — Ric Flair, 16-time pro wrestling world champion.

With all due respect to Flair, his signature saying also applies to Saturday’s Class 4A state championship football game between Baker and Marist at Reser Stadium in Corvallis.

In this case, Marist is “the man.”

Seventh-ranked Baker (11-1) is playing in its first state football championship game. Top-ranked Marist (13-0) is seeking its fourth title in seven years. This will be Marist’s final game at the 4A level. Next season the Spartans move to the 5A level in the Midwestern League.

Marist is 4-2 in football championship games. The Spartans defeated Sisters 36-28 to win the 2007 4A title. They also won the title in 2003 and 2005.

Baker enters Saturday’s game coming off a 57-14 thumping of Phoenix in the semifinals. The Bulldogs are averaging 36.1 points a game, and allowing 17.3.

Marist enters the title game coming off a 42-7 win over Ontario in the semis. The Spartans boast the most points scored (671) and fewest allowed (119) at the 4A level.


Abbreviated roster leads to Baker loss

 Bulldogs feel the absence of players preparing for state football championship in loss to Pendleton


Lack of bodies spelled the difference for Baker Tuesday in an 83-64 non-league boys basketball loss at Pendleton.

“The kids played hard,” said Baker coach Craig Woods. “We just ran out of gas. Playing with just six or seven guys, we just got tired.”

Woods said that with the bulk of his varsity roster still playing football through Saturday’s 4A state championship game, he played a handful of junior varsity players Tuesday.

But those players had already finished a full JV game.

“Pendleton is a real good, fast, athletic team, Woods said. “We learned a lot about ourselves. We’re going to be so much deeper because of this.”


Baker girls gain experience in non-league loss

Baker’s girls basketall team continued its learning experience against Pendleton Tuesday in the Baker gym.

Pendleton handed the Bulldogs a 67-40 loss to drop Baker’s preseason record to 0-2.

“I thought the girls came out and played a better game than we played against Burns last week,” Coach Tim Smith said. “We’re taking some steps toward becoming a better team and that’s our goal in this preseason.

“In our eyes ... it was a successful game even though we didn’t come out on top,” he said.

Baker fell behind 21-4 after one period, then pulled within 30-16 at halftime. Pendleton then outscored the Bulldogs 24-8 in the third period.

Mackenzie Warner led Baker with 13 points. Aly Ogan added nine.

Baker’s games with Weiser and Burns scheduled for Friday and Saturday will be rescheduled due to conflicts with Baker’s state championship football game Saturday at Corvallis.

The girls’ next game is Tuesday at Fruitland.


Bulldogs dominate Phoenix
