BHS trailed 34-20 at the break but drew within three points with eight minutes to play. The Lumberjacks, however, could not maintain that pace and the home team padded its cushion down the stretch.

"We ran out of energy," said BHS coach Rick Kehoe. "We just can't dig ourselves that big of a hole and expect to get out. In the second half we battled back and were within three points but with six minutes to play our legs were gone and we ran out of gas."

For the second consecutive day an opponent dominated at the free throw line against the Jacks. Friday West Fargo converted 26 of 32 charity tosses and Saturday the Prowlers duplicated those numbers. Bemidji, meanwhile hit 10 of 20 from the stripe.

"We committed way too many fouls (25) and gave Thief River way too many free throws," Kehoe said. "We have to get out of the habit of putting teams on the free throw line."

Jess Yost scored 12 points and Greta Steever 10 to pace the Jacks. None of their teammates, however, contributed more than six.

BHS returns home Tuesday to face Moorhead.
