DULUTH -- An offense gone cold was the culprit for the Bemidji High School girls basketball team on Thursday.

The Lumberjacks held an eight-point halftime lead at Duluth East, but it withered away into a 52-46 loss by the end of the night.

BHS held a 28-20 advantage by the intermission, spearheaded by Jackie Johnson’s trio of 3-pointers and 11 points. Yet Bemidji (4-8) made just seven field goals in the second half, which allowed the Greyhounds (8-10) a 32-18 advantage in the frame.

Johnson finished with 14 points on the day, while Marlee Bieber pitched in eight.

Macey DeRosier and Ashlynne Guenther shared the team lead for Duluth East with 13 points apiece.
