BALDWIN — Hesperia’s boys basketball team made the trip to Baldwin for a non-conference game Tuesday night and came back with a 61-25 defeat.

Hesperia dug itself a 17-4 after the first period, and couldn’t get anything going offensively all night so a comeback was unlikely. Baldwin outscored Hesperia, 14-5 in the second period and trailed, 31-9 at the half.

The second half wasn’t any better for Hesperia as Baldwin had a 27-9 advantage in the third quarter and went into the fourth period with a 58-18 lead. Hesperia had a 7-3 edge in the final eight minutes.

“Tonight’s game was overall ugly on both ends of the court,” said Hesperia coach Andrew Worcester.

“Shot opportunities were there, but we could not capitalize on them.

“We did not do a great job of slowing Baldwin’s transition game down. A lot can be said about tonight’s game, however our goal is to make adjustments.”

Maddox Mosley scored 11 points to lead Hesperia, while Carmelo Lindsey tossed in 21 for Baldwin.

Hesperia fell to 1-17 and will finish the regular season Thursday at Shelby.
