"We crawled back and got within two points late but then we couldn't keep it out of the hands of Brooke Yaggie and we couldn't hit another shot," said BHS coach Rick Kehoe. "We were right with Thief River Falls with a chance to make our move but we couldn't do it."

Yaggie finished with 21 points and drained seven of her eight free throw attempts, many of them down the stretch when the Lumberjacks were forced to foul.

Jess Yost paced Bemidji with 15 points and Caitlin Hadrava scored nine.

Tuesday's loss dropped Bemidji to 9-4 while Thief River Falls improved to 11-2.

The Lumberjacks return to action Thursday when they host Duluth East.
