ST. CLOUD – The Bemidji boys basketball team stuck with St. Cloud Tech much of the way Thursday but a 15-4 Tigers burst in the second half settled the issue as the home team defeated the Lumberjacks 92-63.

BHS trailed only 64-55 midway through the second half but the Tigers dominated the rest of the action and cruised to their sixth victory in 22 contests.

Behind 10 early points by Jeremiah Huseby Bemidji forged a 15-14 lead with 11:45 to play in the opening half. Tech, however, countered with a 22-6 spurt to open a 37-22 cushion and Bemidji was forced to battle from behind the rest of the way.

By intermission the Lumberjacks had whittled their deficit to 44-34 and they stayed within shouting distance much of the second half.

Eventually the Tigers were able to take charge and the late St. Cloud Tech run settled the issue.

Thursday’s loss dropped BHS to 1-18. The Lumberjacks return home 3 p.m. Saturday to face Sauk Rapids.
