Baker tries to bounce back

October 25, 2013
By JIM LINETTE ( , Cape Coral Daily Breeze

After suffering their first loss of the season in a crucial District 6A-12 game at South Fort Myers last Friday, it is the focus of the Ida Baker Bulldogs to bounce back from that disappointment this week. That is easier said than done since tonight's opponent is the the very formidable Charlotte Tarpons.

At least it is a non-district matchup and the outcome will neither help or hurt the Bulldogs' postseason aspirations. Their last district game of the season is against East Lee County on Nov. 1. A win clinches a postseason slot.

In other games tonight, Cape Coral is hosting district rival Lehigh and Island Coast is hosting Dunbar. Mariner travels to Cypress Lake, North Fort Myers travels to Lemon Bay, Oasis travels to Gateway and Bishop Verot hosts Lake Placid.

Ida Baker QB Sage Attwood (11) runs for a first down against South Fort Myers last Friday. The Bulldogs try to bounce back from their first loss of the season tonight against Charlotte. More photos are available online at:

Island Coast, leading the District 5A-14 standings, hosts district runner-up Dunbar with kickoff at 7:30 p.m. The Gators have a "Go Green" theme for the game in conjunction with Goodwill and the school's Academy of Natural Resources (ARN).

Fans who donate gently used items at the gate for Goodwill will be entered in a drawing to win an iPad. Fans can learn effective ways to "Go Green" from the ARN and Sustainable Lee County. There's also a fish fry of campus-raised tilapia by ANR students.

Lee County Solid Waste and Lee County Business partners will privde information and demonstrate recycling and sustainability methods.
