Bruins ok in stretches, but fall to Packers

Fargo South got off to a great start, leading 6-0 and 9-2, but it was a game of missed opportunities, and the result was a lopsided score of 72-36 in a Tuesday night loss in West Fargo. Despite leading 9-2, it could have been better for the Bruins, and every little bit helps when trying to win games on the road. West Fargo capitalized on a couple of turnovers by South and a pair of missed bunnies by the Bruins, and took a 12-11 midway through the opening half. South kept it close though, and trailed 18-15 with just over 6 minutes to go, but the Packers were able to stretch things out as they nailed a number of three pointers, and took a 34-20 lead into halftime. In the second half, South held the Packers scoreless in the opening 3 minutes of the half, giving them ample opportunity to narrow the gap, but could only muster 1 field goal in those 3 minutes, making it a 34-22 lead with 15 minutes to play. After that strech though, the Bruins struggled to keep West Fargo off the scoreboard, and the Packers scored on way too many possessions in a row over the next few minutes to extend their lead 55-36. And that would be as close as things got for South, as West Fargo scored the last 17 points of the game to make the score not pretty. Adie Wagner was the only Bruin in double figures with 12, despite having a chaser on her for a large chunk of the second half.
