Baker turns back Nyssa, 61-47

Baker tuned up for Friday’s Greater Oregon League contest at La Grande by edging Nyssa 61-47 in a non-league boys basketball game Tuesday at BHS.

Baker pulled ahead late in the first quarter then held Nyssa off the rest of the way.

Nyssa jumped out to a 10-4 lead before Baker battled back.

Derek Blankenship hit a three-pointer to pull Baker within 10-7. Then, after Nyssa scored again, Baker ran off 10 unanswered points to take the lead.

Blankenship led the way with five points. Jesse Brown added three and Dekker Smith two as Baker built a 17-12 lead. The Bulldogs led 17-14 at the break.

Four more points by Blankenship, two by B.J. Quintana, and one by Smith  opened the second period with a 7-0 Baker run to increase the lead to 24-14 with 4:55 left in the half.

Nyssa remained close the rest of the half, pulling to within 28-24 at the break.

Nyssa continued to hang around until 5:42 remained in the third period. That’s when Seth Glenn injured his ankle making a jumper from the corner that pulled Nyssa to within 34-28. Glenn was helped to the locker room, and did not return.

Baker wrestlers split at Ontario

Baker split a pair of wrestling duals with Ontario and Vale Tuesday at Ontario High School.

The Bulldogs lost the Greater Oregon League match with Ontario 44-24, but rebounded to top Vale 56-21.

“The team continues to step forward,” said Baker coach Brandon Young. “The big question will be can Baker hold up until districts in two weeks...The biggest battle is going to be keeping everyone healthy and eligible the remainder of the season.”

Young said the Bulldogs’ Sam Pearson gets the gold star as he worked over Chase Fields of Ontario to win 9-5.

“Sam rode Fields the last two rounds and had him on his back in a double arm bar in the final seconds of the match,” Young said. “Fields took third at state last season. With that win Sam Pearson is looking like he has a good shot to enter district as the No. 1 seed at 140 pounds. He still needs a win against Mac-Hi.”

Baker City Herald

Baker used a record-setting scoring performance by Derek Blankenship to roll past Weiser, Idaho, 89-59 in a non-league boys basketball game Saturday at BHS.

Blankenship led Baker with 45 points. He was 11-of-14 from three-point range, and 16-of-20 overall from the field. He also dished out four assists.

Blankenship’s 45 points eclipsed Baker’s single-game record of 43 points set in 2002 by Dave Mullins at Vale.

“My shot was just going good,” Blankenship said. “I have to credit my teammates and coaches. We had some set plays for me.

“Jesse Brown got me the ball. Dekker (Smith), Trace (Richardson), B.J. (Quintana), Ty (Everson) and Taylor (McEnroe) all were playing well.”

Blankenship scored 31 points in the first half, hitting 7-of-8 from beyond the arc.
