CASS LAKE -- Out of the gates, it looked like the Cass Lake-Bena girls basketball team was about to put on an offensive show. The performance changed to a defensive clinic in a hurry, but that doesn't bother the Panthers any.

"We trusted our defense all game long, and all season long," CLB head coach Martin Wind said. "They take pride in our defense. I told my girls that, if they want to hold the ball, go out and hold it. We have an eight-point lead. If this game's going to be (in the 40s), oh well. We'll win."

Cass Lake-Bena put its foot down, holding visiting Goodridge/Grygla-Gatzke to nine second-half points and winning 54-37 in the Section 8A Tournament quarterfinals.
