Baker girls get first win

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.

Bulldogs meet Parma for title

Baker continued to develop a team chemistry Tuesday while defeating Vale 64-46 in the first round of the Fruitland, Idaho, Invitational boys basketball tournament.

“We continued to take baby steps forward. That’s the important thing,” said Baker coach Craig Woods.

The Bulldogs jumped out to a 13-6 lead after one period and never looked back.

 “Defensively, I thought we played a lot better,” Woods said.

Woods was still concerned about the Bulldogs’ rebounding. Vale outrebounded Baker 35-34, with 18 coming on the offensive boards.

Weiser girls stop Bulldogs

Baker managed to cut the deficit in half from the first time the Bulldogs played Weiser in a non-league girls basketball game. But in the end, the Bulldogs still came up on the losing end of the score.

Earlier this month Baker fell 67-44 at Weiser. Tuesday, the Bulldogs dropped a 56-45 contest in the Baker gym.

Shaky rebounding and defense, and spotty offense hurt the Bulldogs.

Weiser took control of the game midway through the first quarter. The Wolverines broke a 4-4 tie with a 9-1 run that gave them a 13-5 lead with 1:45 left in the period.

Weiser pounded the ball inside on the way to a 17-7 lead at the break.
