Yost paces offense for Bemidji girls basketball
Bemidji Minnesota P.O. Box 455 56619

Jess Yost scored 19 points and Cheyenne Woods added 18 to power the Bemidji girls basketball team to a 61-49 victory Saturday at Cloquet.

Bemidji controlled play from start to finish and forged a 58-34 lead before pulling its starters with five minutes to play.

Cloquet continued to play most of its regulars down the stretch and was able to trim its deficit to 12 points at the end.

"We played well," said Lumberjacks coach Rick Kehoe. "We didn't shot very well but we did work the offense very efficiently and that is good to see."

Bemidji took an 8-2 lead at the outset but Cloquet eventually tied the game 18-18.

"But after they tied it we took charge," Kehoe said.

By intermission BHS had extended its lead to 33-25 and in the second half the Lumberjacks continued to widen the gap.

Saturday's victory improved Bemidji's record to 9-3. The Jacks will hope to reach double figures in the win column Tuesday at Thief River Falls.
