Tough sledding for Bruins in Devils Lake

Not much went right for Fargo South on Friday night in Devils Lake as the Firebirds rolled to a huge 87-27 win on their home court. After a Paige Schroeder basket was followed up by a steal and fast break layup by Adie Wagner made it a 5-4 Devils Lake lead, the Firebirds then went on a 19-0 run to grab control of the game and never looked back. Devils Lake got to every loose ball, had a number of offensive rebounds, and converted numerous turnovers into fast break baskets throughout the half. That early run was followed up later in the half by another run of 14-0, and the result was a lopsided 49-15 halftime score. South was plagued by 30 turnovers and a 22% shooting night, although Paige Schroeder continued her strong play early in the season, scoring 11 points and grabbing 5 boards. South falls to 0-2 in the EDC and will host Fargo North on Thursday in the first game of a double-header.
