The Bemidji High girls basketball team had little trouble with outmatched Detroit Lakes Thursday night, rolling to a 74-32 decision at the BHS Fieldhouse.

Despite the cold weather, the attraction brought out a crowd of around 600 fans who witnessed Bemidji score pretty much at will, taking a 47-17 lead to the locker room at halftime and surrendering the contest to the reserves shortly afterward.

The game matched the 7-1 Bemidji quintet against a 1-7 Laker five and proved to be that much different.

Bemidji came out less intense than Coach Rick Kehoe desired which resulted in some early substitutions.

One was freshman Jess Yost who was inserted early and went on to score 14 points in the first half and a game-high 19 on the night in her finest performance of the season.

Kayla Hirt followed with 16, also netting 14 by halftime, and seven other players scored before the night ended.

The visitors stayed close for four minutes, trailing 8-6 at that point.

But Bemidji settled down to run the next 10 and late in the half added another string of 10 to up the margin to 41-14.

It then accomplished its every game goal of holding an opponent under 20 points at halftime.

Jenny Miller's five was tops for the losers at that point.

Bemidji didn't let up to start the second half with Erika Weimann netting a pair of treys as Bemidji moved ahead 60-20 and the starters began retiring for the night.

The huge lead brought about running time at the nine minute mark and the game was wrapped up at 8:30.

Matter reached 10 to pace DL.  Courtney Gray had nine. Twelve of their points came against the second and third units.

Bemidji can expect far more opposition at Willmar where the Cardinals are 8-0 and 3-0 in the CLC, tied for first place.

Bemidji made it a complete sweep winning the B Game 45-35 and the freshman contest 40-26.

It took a 22-14 halftime lead in the B Game behind a strong rebounding game and eight points from Yost. It maintained the margin the rest of the way despite the liberal use of reserves.

Maren Erpelding and Kelly Morehouse also reached eight before the game ended with Yost playing only the first half. No Laker had more than seven.

The B Team reached 3-5 with the win.

The freshmen are 4-3 after their victory. They led 19-12 at halftime.

Jessa Lusby and Greta Steever had 13 to lead the way.
