Baker girls host Cottage Grove in playoff soccer

Baker will host Cottage Grove in the second round of the Class 4A/3A/2A/1A state girls soccer playoffs Tuesday at 1 p.m. at the Baker Sports Complex.

Baker, coached by DeeDee Clarke, enters the playoffs 12-1-1 and champions of Special District 7.

Cottage Grove earned the right to play Baker after edging Western Mennonite 1-0 in the opening round of the postseason Saturday.

Spectator admission is $6 adults and $4 students. No regular season passes will be accepted.

Baker’s defense, the backbone of the Bulldogs’ success all season, stepped to the forefront against Mac-Hi Friday.

Mac-Hi entered the game averaging 24 points a game in Greater Oregon League play. But with the GOL championship on the line, Baker shut the Pioneers down for a 22-6 victory at Bulldog Memorial Stadium.

“Our defense played very well,” said Baker coach Dave Johnson.

The Bulldogs intercepted four Mac-Hi passes — one each by Rowdy LaMiller, Dekker Smith, Chad Adams and Steven Talbot. LaMiller’s theft was his seventh of the season.

“Rowdy’s had a great year anchoring our secondary,” Johnson said.

Baker runners competed near their best marks Saturday at the Class 4A state cross country meet at Lane Community College.

“We didn’t have any personal bests, but everybody ran close to their PR times,” said Baker coach Suzy Cole. “The kids ran pretty consistent times.”

Baker’s girls finished 12th in the team standings with 270 points. Siuslaw won the girls title with 36.

Baker’s boys were 14th with 368 points. Hidden Valley was the boys champion with 37.

Baker’s top girls runner was Melissa Clarke, placing 28th with a time of 21:19.5.

Baker City’s very own Beaver

Beavers 2, Ducks 0.

That isn’t a prediction for this year’s Civil War football game Nov. 29 at Reser Stadium in Corvallis.

It’s actually the results of a duck hunting excursion by former Baker Bulldog Grant Johnson and his father, Mark, last weekend.

The younger Johnson, a sophomore reserve offensive lineman for Oregon State, was home visiting his family during the Beavers’ bye week in the Pac-10 schedule. Both he and his father bagged one duck Saturday.

“It has nothing to do with the Civil War,” said Mark, who, along Grant’s mom, Heather Palmer-Johnson, is an OSU graduate.

“I don’t even think about the Civil War,” Grant added. “Some of my teammates might think about it, but I’m only thinking about Arizona State.”

Baker teams preparing for start of state playoffs

Three Baker High School athletic teams will begin the state playoffs this weekend, and two others will be thinking about the postseason as well.

Baker’s girls and boys cross country teams and the girls volleyball team open the “third season” Saturday on the west side of the state. The Bulldogs’ girls soccer team and football team will be gearing up for state action a few days later.

Baker girls win district crown

Bulldog boys cross country team also advances to state meet

Baker successfully defended its Greater Oregon League girls cross country championship Friday at Eastern Oregon University in La Grande.

The Bulldogs placed five runners in the top eight to finish the race with 27 points. Ontario was second with 47.

The Baker boys, the defending GOL champs as well, finished second this time with 44 points behind La Grande (25).

Both Baker squads now advance to the Class 4A state meet this Saturday at Lane Community College in Eugene.

Baker Coach Suzy Cole said her girls ran well Friday.

Baker’s football team put its Class 4A state playoff destiny securely in its own hands Friday. The Bulldogs ran their Greater Oregon League record to 2-0 with a 47-0 thumping of La Grande at Community Stadium in La Grande.

The win means Baker can claim the GOL championship and a first-round state bye with a victory over Mac-Hi Friday at Bulldog Memorial Stadium.

“It’s for the league championship,” said Baker coach Dave Johnson about the match-up with the Pioneers.

“That’s been our goal all season. We’re telling our guys that Mac-Hi is one of those groups you don’t want to let hang around or they could be trouble.”

At La Grande, Baker’s offense sputtered early, but the Bulldog defense made up for it.

“We were a little ragged to begin with,” Johnson said.

Baker girls shut out Pirates

Led by four Dallas Defrees goals, Baker buried Riverside 8-0 in the Special District 7 girls soccer regular-season finale at the Baker Sports Complex Saturday.

The win improved Baker’s league record to 9-1 and 12-1-1 overall. The Bulldogs now await their first opponent in the Class 4A/3A/2A/1A state playoffs Nov. 4. Baker will host the winner of Saturday’s Western Mennonite-Cottage Grove match.

“We’re hoping it will be Western Mennonite,” said Baker coach DeeDee Clarke. “We’d like a little revenge for what they did to us two years ago in the playoffs.”

Western Mennonite nipped the Bulldogs 1-0 on a controversial goal under rainy conditions in that playoff matchup.

Baker, which saw its hopes for an undefeated season go away Thursday at La Grande, rebounded with a flourish Saturday.

La Grande stuns Baker

Tigers win 2-0, spoiling Bulldogs’ perfect league mark

The Baker girls’ soccer team’s steamrolling route through the Special District 7 schedule skidded off the path Thursday at La Grande.

The Tigers shut out the Bulldogs 2-0.

The loss put the first blemish on Baker’s District record.

The Bulldogs are 8-1-0.

La Grande improved to 4-4-2.
