BHS took a 35-33 lead eight minutes into the second half when Caitlin Hadrava connected on a field goal and the Jacks eventually pushed the margin to 41-33 when Hadrava drained a 3-pointer.

Bemidji, however, would score only five more points while the Lakers took full advantage of their opportunities down the stretch to score 16.

"How many games have we had a late lead and then have things crumble," said Bemidji coach Rick Kehoe. "Detroit Lakes' press didn't bother us then entire game and then down the stretch we have three turnovers off it.

"Sometimes it looks as if we are scared to win the game. All we have to do is just play basketball and not worry about the outcome. What we have to do is just think about the next play and what needs to be done right now," the coach said. "If we do that everything will take care of itself."

Jess Yost did her part Thursday as she scored 25 points. Hadrava added 10 but no other Lumberjack contributed more than four.

"Jess had a very good game and kept us in it," Kehoe said. "Overall, you can see that the kids are making progress. We are showing stretches of playing very good basketball. What we need to develop now is consistency."

Bemidji, 3-6, hosts Cloquet on Tuesday.
