Kayla Hirt set a school single game record, eclipsing her former mark of 38 set in the Moorhead with a 40-point performance.

It came on 18 field goals and four free throws.

Cloquet center Annabelle Morrisroe was almost as good, netting 31 on a steady series of layups.

Jess Yost added 12 and Erika Weimann 10 for the Bemidji cause. No other Cloquet player reached double figures.

"It was not a pretty game," said Coach Rick Kehoe. "We gave up far too many easy layups inside and were hurt by the physical style of play. But we turned up the intensity to start the second half and took charge and were never in any danger."

Bemidji will host Duluth East Thursday in its next start and winds up a busy week Saturday at Sartell.

The B Team reached 5-5 with a 39-26 decision led by Caitlin Hadrava who netted a season high 21.

The freshmen also won 41-26 to reach 6-3 with Greta Steever netting 17, Jessa Lusby 12 and Cheyenne Woods 8.
