Baker volleyball team drops five-game match to La Grande

LA GRANDE — Baker lost a Greater Oregon League volleyball match at La Grande Thursday.

The scores were 25-22, 23-25, 25-15, 22-25, 11-15.

“Tara Talbott had a great game tonight, and Whitney Phillips also had a strong game,” Bulldogs coach Marcy Hayes said.

Talbott was a perfect 16-for-16 serving and finished 36-for-43 hitting with 17 kills. Phillips was an almost-perfect 54-for-56 setting with 21 assists and went 14-for-15 hitting with 6 kills.

What a wild summer it has been

It’s been an interesting summer at the Steele households.

Most readers of the Baker City Herald are probably aware that I underwent double-bypass heart surgery on June 27. That’s just the tip of the iceberg.

I actually suffered a heart attack on June 21, and after spending the night at St. Elizabeth hospital was flown by Life Flight to St. Alphonsus hospital in Boise. I was originally going to undergo a quadruple bypass surgery, but complications during the week necessitated going ahead with the double bypass instead.

Then, during a 12-hour stint in the operating room I nearly didn’t make it a couple of times. (At least that is what I was told a couple weeks later after I got home. I was told that the family at the hospital was told to call the rest of the family because it didn’t look promising.)

Baker girls soccer team beats Pendleton, 3-1

Baker High School’s girls soccer team overcame some rough play and turned aside a penalty kick late in the game to earn a road victory over Pendleton Tuesday, 3-1.

“It was a rough game,” said coach DeeDee Clarke. “There were very aggressive girls both ways.”

Ashley Shively and Dallas Defrees opened the scoring by teaming up on a corner kick. Shively earned the assist and Defrees put the ball in the net with one touch from her left foot.

“It was a pretty goal,” Clarke said.

Shively upped the margin to 2-0 late in the first half when, after a Pendleton foul, she lofted a ball from about midfield that went just over the goalkeeper’s head and into the net.

“That,” Clarke said, “was beautiful.”

Baker girls shut out Umatilla, 8-0

Freshman Maggie Harlow leads the way with four goals

Freshman Maggie Harlow scored four goals to lead Baker to an 8-0 Special District 7 girls soccer win over Umatilla Saturday at the Baker Sports Complex.

Harlow scored her goals on seven shots. She also added an assist.

Dallas Defrees chipped in two goals and two assists. Callie Baxter and Mackenzie Warner each added a goal.

“The girls played a good game,” said Baker coach DeeDee Clarke. “They were passing well and moving well.”

Clarke said the team had had a good week despite learning that senior Julia Vaughan has been lost for the season after suffering a torn ACL in her knee two games earlier.

“It’s been a good week,” Clarke said. “The girls have been up, and have been working hard. Whether it’s for Julia, or for themselves, they’ve decided to go for the district title.”

Baker wins battle of Bulldogs

Baker spotted Nyssa an early touchdown then rolled to a 33-6 victory in a non-league football at Bulldog Memorial Stadium Friday evening.

Nyssa’s Kyle Schoorl raced 77 yards two minutes into the game for a score that gave Nyssa a 6-0 lead. That score stood until early in the second quarter.

“The boys did some great things,” said Baker coach Dave Johnson.

“They played very well defensively with the exception of the first five minutes.”

As they did in the first two games, penalties again hurt the Bulldogs early. Baker was assessed 50 yards in penalties in the first half Friday.

“The kids are anxious,” Johnson said. “We just have to stay focused.”

Baker took the lead for good three plays into the second period. Steven Talbot did the honors, scoring on a 2-yard run. Jordan Harlow’s conversion kick gave Baker a 7-6 lead.

Baker girls tie with Weiser

WEISER, Idaho — Coach DeeDee Clarke was pretty sure even a sluggish performance was going to be good enough to earn the Baker girls soccer team a win Tuesday.

And she was right — until the very last kick of the match.

The referee called a penalty on Baker and awarded Weiser a direct kick.

A Weiser player converted the kick to tie the score at 2-2.

Then the referee blew the whistle to end the match.

BHS volleyballers lose to Burns

Baker High School’s volleyball team dropped a three-game match to Burns Tuesday.

The scores were 13-25, 23-25, 15-25.

“We had a rough match tonight,” said Baker coach Marcy Hayes. “We were outplayed tonight. Burns is a tough team and you have to be playing your best volleyball to beat them. We were not always playing our best volleyball.”

Bulldogs drop opener

For the second week in a row, penalties and an inability to move the ball in the “red zone” hurt Baker in non-league football action. A week earlier, the Bulldogs were able to overcome those problems for a win at Parma, Idaho. But, Friday at Bulldog Memorial Stadium, Baker fell 20-6 to visiting Weiser, Idaho.

“I thought we moved the ball pretty well, we just didn’t finish,” said Baker coach Dave Johnson.

Baker’s cross country runners had a solid first outing Friday at the annual Hermiston Invitational. Both the boys and girls teams placed third in the meet.

“I’m very excited about where our boys are,” said Baker coach Suzy Cole.

“Trevor Freese, our No. 1 runner, ran a very competitive race. He ran a great time compared to last year’s meet.”
