Marshfield outmuscled Baker 61-44 in a Class 4A boys basketball first-round game Saturday at Coos Bay.

“The refs let it become a football game, with their size giving them an advantage,” said Baker coach Brent Gyllenberg.

“We adjusted too late to overcome the officials. The guys, as always, fought to the last seconds.”

Three Bulldogs fouled out and two others finished with four fouls. Baker played the latter portion of the fourth quarter with just four players.

To make matters worse, Baker got off only 13 shots in the first half, making only three. Baker scored just four points in the second quarter, all from the free throw line.

Two points each from Riley Flanagan, Caden Long and Cayn Osborn gave Baker a 6-2 lead early in the first quarter.

But Baker then went seven minutes scoring just two more points to trail 28-8 late in the first half.
