Lake of the Woods storms past Mustangs
March 3, 2017
BEMIDJI -- Behind a big second half from Marissa Johnson, Lake of the Woods had its way in the second half with the Kelliher/Northome girls basketball team on Thursday. Despite a neck-and-neck game at the break, the Bears ran away with a 51-33 win from the BSU Gymnasium in the first round of the Section 8A playoffs.
Both defenses were stout in the early goings, as each team tallied just two points in the first five and a half minutes. The trend continued throughout the half, resulting in a 15-12 halftime advantage for Lake of the Woods (13-11).
