CANYON CITY — The Baker girls had had enough of losing.
After going without a win during the season’s first month, the
Bulldogs broke the streak with a 45-37 win Tuesday over Grant Union.
“That was big, going into league play on Friday,” Baker coach Tim
Smith said. “We needed to get a feel for what it’s like to win.”
The key sequence Tuesday was early in the final period.
Baker had squandered most of its 28-22 halftime lead by playing sluggish in the third quarter.
The Bulldogs led 34-33 after three quarters, and the Prospectors had all the momentum, Smith said.
“But then we got a couple of defensive stops, and a couple of baskets, and we won going away,” he said.
Baker outscored Grant Union 11-4 in the final period.
