GIRLS BASKETBALL: Bemidji struggles in loss to Moorhead

Email

MOORHEAD — A poor offensive night for the Bemidji High School girls basketball team was compounded by a sub-par defensive performance for the Lumberjacks Tuesday night, leading to a 70-41 Moorhead victory.

“We didn’t shoot well from the start,” BHS head coach Rick Kehoe said, noting that BHS made only eight field goals to Moorhead’s 29. “You’re not going to win too many games doing that.”

Moorhead (9-11) went on an early 7-0 run. Kehoe said he called timeout and the Lumberjacks (3-16) stayed close for a while but the Spuds kept going on runs to pull away.

“They just had a bunch of little spurts in that first half which really hurt us.,” he said. “They had energy and we didn’t.”

The Spuds led 41-20 at halftime. The Lumberjacks were able to hold Moorhead to under 30 points in the second half but never got much closer.

“It’s bad to have an off night offensively when you can’t get it done on defense,” Kehoe said.

The Lumberjacks, who scored more than half of their points on foul shots (they went 22-for-33) were led by Katrina Holman, who scored 14 points and was BHS’s only scorer in double figures.

Kelli Tonn led a balanced Moorhead attack with 15 points.

The Lumberjacks return to the court Thursday when they’ll host Detroit Lakes.
