Bemidji and Apollo traded leads early in the game, and Apollo led 32-20 at halftime.

"It went back and forth the whole first half," Bemidji head coach Jeff Brown said. "The kids worked hard."

Bemidji senior Carey Woods led all players with 20 points. Woods hit six field goals and went 4-for-4 from the free throw line.

Cody Rutledge also played a role in the Lumberjack's offense, scoring 18 points and going 4-for-7 from the line.

Mitch Brown scored 13 points for the Lumberjacks.

The Eagles clicked from long range, building up a lead by hitting shots from the perimeter.

"They did a nice job of getting the ball inside and kicking it out," Brown said.

The Eagles finished the game shooting 12-for-20 at the line. Bemidji was unable to decrease the lead, as Apollo sank free throws late. Bemidji plays Tuesday at Sauk Rapids.
