Bruins end tough week with loss to Devils Lake

Fargo South played with a bit more energy than earlier in the week, but 37 turnovers gave South no chance to defeat the Firebirds, and the result was a lopsided 72-40 loss at home on Saturday afternoon. The Firebird pressure forced 22 first half turnovers as South had trouble on almost every possession to hang onto the ball. The Bruins trailed 35-17 at halftime. In the second half, South tried to claw back into the game, scoring on its first 3 tries while holding down Devils Lake, and in the first 2 minutes cut the lead to 35-24. However the Firebirds regained control by crashing the offensive boards, and pulled away from the Bruins going foward from there. Teigan Malo led South with 13 points, and was joined in double figures by Grace Hoselton with 11. Next action for South is the make up game vs West Fargo Sheyenne on Thursday at home.
