ST. MICHAEL – The Bemidji girls basketball team ran into a strong St. Michael-Albertville squad Saturday night. The results were better for the Lumberjacks, but still somewhat predictable: The Knights defeated the Lumberjacks 68-30.

“We played better today than we did against Rogers on Friday,” BHS coach Rick Kehoe said. “We handled their pressure better and played better defense. But they’re just a very good team.”

The two teams traded baskets for the first few minutes of the game, but the Knights (7-0) ran away with it later in the half and lead the Lumberjacks (0-6) at halftime, 38-17.

In the second half the Knights cruised to a 30-13 advantage to win, comfortably, by 38.

“They’re a good team and they’ll probably win our section,” Kehoe said of the Knights. “But this is good improvement for us. We’re getting better every game.”

Greta Steever led Bemidji with 12 points and was the only Lumberjack in double digits. Jess Yost added eight points.

The Knights had three in double figures. Natalie Van Wyhe led the way with 20, Bobbi Brendefur had 13 and Sydney Tracy 12.

The Lumberjacks are on the road again next week, traveling to Moorhead Tuesday and Buffalo Friday night.
