Bemidji continued to be bitten by the turnovers and the Prowlers turned those ball handling mistakes into numerous easy baskets.

The Lumberjacks owned a 3-0 lead as Jess Yost was fouled and converted following a put-back bucket. But the visitors were in command the rest of the way as the Prowlers answered with an 8-0 run.

Thief River Falls upped its advantage to double figures at 17-7 with 10 minutes to play in the opening half but a 5-0 BHS run late in the stanza sliced the deficit to 28-19.

Maren Erpelding began the spurt with a free throw and Yost and Summer Monsrud followed with baskets.

At intermission TRF (2-1) owned a 30-21 lead.

Monsrud had eight points at the break and Yost had seven.

Bemidji was able to stay within reach early in the second stanza and Yost's basket from the paint brought the Lumberjacks within 38-20.

The Prowlers, however, put the game away with a 15-0 run over the next five minutes.

Yost finished with 15 points while Monsrud added 14. The rest of the squad, however, combined for only 10 points.

Bemidji, 0-2, returns to action Thursday when it visits Grand Rapids.

A 5-goal outburst in the opening period carried the Bemidji boys hockey team to a 7-2 win Tuesday at Sartell.

"We came out working hard and we were opportunistic. We got a few bounces and when they came our way we found a way to bury the biscuit," said BHS coach Wade Chiodo.

Tyler Follis opened the scoring at 1:16 and Dillon Eichstadt connected at 6:53. Matt Serratore scored the first of his two goals at 8:25 and John Forseth and Max Hazelton capped the period with goals at 14:27 and 15:52.

Serratore collected his second goal 6:48 into the second period and, after Sartell drew within 6-2 midway through the third, BHS iced the win when Jake White notched an unassisted goal at 15:19.

Jeremiah Graves finished with 17 saves in the Lumberjacks net while the offense sent 30 shots at the Sartell goalie.

"We may not have been as fluid as we have been but, ultimately, we scored seven goals by working hard," Chiodo said.

Tuesday's win was Bemidji's third in as many outings. The Jacks return to the ice Thursday when they invade Moorhead.

Bemidji also claimed the junior varsity game 4-2.
