A trio of Baker girls scored in double figures Friday to lead the Bulldogs to a 55-46 Greater Oregon League girls basketball win over Mac-Hi in the BHS gym.

It was Baker’s first GOL win of the season (1-2) and the Bulldogs’ second overall win of the season, improving their record to 2-14.

Summer Phillips led Baker with 13 points against the Pioneers. Brie Sand added 12 points, and Allie Brown 11.

“It was nice to see the kids play hard, play confident,” said Baker coach Jenny Mowe-Joseph.

“A couple of my girls have been sick all week with the flu, so it was really a gut check for us tonight. We weren’t sure about how much a couple of the girls would play."

Brown set the tone in the first quarter, scoring nine of her 11 points in the first eight minutes.

Michelle Freese then came off the bench to score seven of her eight points in the second period to help boost Baker to a 29-17 halftime lead.

Phillips and Sand then took over after halftime, combining for 18 points in the second half.

“Summer Phillips played a great game,” Mowe-Joseph said. “I’ve been challenging her to shoot the ball more. Tonight she did. And Allie Brown shot the ball well.”

Brown scored seven of Baker’s first eight points to start the game with an 8-4 lead.

Phillips added a three-point play, and Brown another basket as the Bulldogs led 13-8 at the break.

Baker then scored the first seven points of the second period, including two each by Phillips, Erin Bachman and Freese, to build the lead to 20-8 three minutes into the quarter.

Mac-Hi never got closer than nine points after that.
