“It was a good, solid win,” said Baker coach Tim Smith.

“These are the kind of games that worry you as a coach,” he said. “You know you are the better team, but you have to come out ready to go.”

Baker was without Maggie Harlow, who was on crutches nursing an injured ankle, and Morgan Ward, who was ill. Savannah Daly played despite being ill before the game. And, Mackenzie Warner became ill at halftime, and played sparingly in the second half.
