Bulldogs come up short in 4A title game with Marist

Top-ranked Spartans hand Baker 55-16 loss

CORVALLIS — Baker’s dream of a Class 4A state football championship became a nightmare Saturday morning at Reser Stadium.

Top-ranked Marist gave the Bulldogs all the bad dreams they could handle, stopping Baker 55-16 for the championship.

“We didn’t take care of the ball very well, and they’re a good team. That’s a bad combination,” said Baker coach Dave Johnson.

“And defensively we didn’t wrap up well at times. They ran hard and that made it tough to wrap up at times.

“You can’t give them a short field and expect to stay close. But it was a privilege to get to play them.”

Marist ran up a 48-0 halftime lead, meaning the second half was played under a running clock due to the mercy rule.

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

Total domination.
That’s the easiest way to describe Baker’s 57-14 victory over Phoenix in the Class 4A state football semifinals at Liberty High School in Hillsboro.

Baker girls mix new, old

Baker girls basketball coach Tim Smith plans to use the preseason to try and mesh his returning players and a bundle of new faces.
