Bulldogs take second

Baker High School’s volleyball team had a quality showing at the La Grande volleyball tournament Saturday, winning seven of eight games in pool play and advancing to the championship game before losing to the host team.

In pool play, Baker topped Ontario, 25-9, Elgin, 25-18, Weston-McEwen, 25-16, Vale 23-21, Weiser 25-7, Columbia, 24-16 and Union, 25-21. The Bulldogs’ only loss during the preliminary round was to La Grande, 17-25.

Games were designed to be played to 25 points, but the teams were on a 20-minute time limit, Baker Coach Marcy Hayes said.

Nine possessions. Seven touchdowns. Toss in a pair of defensive scores, and it spells a 62-0 Baker victory in a non-league football game at Burns Friday.

Baker took the opening kickoff and drove 81 yards on eight plays for its first touchdown. Chad Adams did the honors on a 5-yard run. Jordan Harlow’s conversion kick gave Baker a 7-0 lead three minutes into the game.

The Bulldogs increased their lead to 14-0 with 1:31 left in the first quarter when Harlow connected on a 15-yard TD pass with Walker Kaseberg.

The quarter ended with Baker on top 14-0.

Bryce Banta intercepted a Burns pass on the Hilanders’ next series, setting Baker up with a first down on its own 26.

The Bulldogs needed just eight plays to find paydirt again. Steven Talbot scored the touchdown on a 10-yard counter behind the left side of the Baker line. Talbot accounted for 44 yards on the drive.

Baker stays unbeaten

The Baker High School girls soccer team remained undefeated Thursday, turning back La Grande 2-1 at the Baker Sports Complex.

Freshman left forward Maggie Harlow scored both goals for the Bulldogs, who now sport a 6-0-1 record.

“She was right where she needed to be,” said her coach, DeeDee Clarke.

Dallas Defrees got the assist on the first goal, and Kallie Baxter “crossed one beautifully” to Harlow for the second goal, Clarke said.

The Tigers got a goal back on a free kick that bounced off the post and into the net. Baker goalkeeper Kristen Hoopes had no chance to make the stop, Clarke said.

Robbie Langrell scored an apparent third goal for the Bulldogs, but the host squad was called offside on the play, negating the score. Langrell later left the game with a bloody nose.

Bulldogs get first volleyball win

Baker’s volleyball team earned its first victory of the year Thursday in the Baker gym over Fruitland.

The scores were 25-20, 25-20, 17-25, 25-19.

“We have won some games in tournaments, but we haven’t won a whole match yet this year,” said coach Marcy Hayes. “The girls worked very hard and played well tonight.”

Individual statistical leaders included Tara Talbott, 17-of-18 serving with an ace. She was also 23-for-27 hitting with 11 kills.

Savannah Daly finished 38-for-43 setting and contributed 13 assists. Annie Martin was 6-for-7 hitting and notched 3 kills.

MILTON-FREEWATER —‑Dallas Defrees and Robbie Langrell combined for all of Baker’s goals Saturday in a 5-0 Special District 7 girls soccer win at Mac-Hi.

Defrees scored a three-goal “hat trick,” and Langrell added a pair of goals as Baker ran its season record to 5-0-1 and league mark to 2-0.

“The girls looked great,” said Baker coach DeeDee Clarke.

“We had to move some people around, but the girls came right out and completely controlled the game.”

Garden Valley rolls past Pine-Eagle in non-leaguer

HALFWAY —‑Pine-Eagle dropped a 60-20 non-league football game to a strong Garden Valley, Idaho, team Friday afternoon in Halfway.

“Garden Valley was a pretty good ballteam, but we knew that,” said Pine-Eagle coach Blake Dennis.

“They had one guy (J.D. Clark) who scores most of their touchdowns.”

Dennis said Pine-Eagle was without Trevor Durr, who is injured. The Spartans also lost starting running back Kyle Dennis in the second quarter with a shoulder injury.

Bulldogs defense shuts down Vale in fourth quarter

Quarterback Jordan Harlow throws two TD passes as Baker wins 14-13

VALE —‑Baker quarterback Jordan Harlow threw two touchdown passes, and the Bulldog defense forced three fourth-quarter Vale turnovers in a 14-13 non-league football win Friday.

Trailing 7-0 late in the second quarter, Baker mounted an 80-yard scoring drive. Harlow connected on a pair of first-down-gaining passes to Walker Kaseberg on the drive.

The second of those passes gave Baker a first down on the Vale 36. From there the Bulldogs used six running plays to move the the Viking 18. A Vale penalty then gave the Bulldogs a first down on the Vale 9 with 46 seconds left in the first half.

Harlow then found Trace Richardson in the corner of the end zone to cut the deficit to 7-6. Harlow’s conversion kick attempt was no good, leaving Baker down 7-6 at halftime.

Baker took the lead for good with 4:20 left in the third quarter. Again the scoring play started with Harlow’s right arm.

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.)
