Girls place second at Kimball tournament

This article submitted by Nicole Orbeck on 12/3/96.

The Bulldogs started off their season with a 67-51 nonconference loss to Belgrade-Brooten-Elrosa on Tuesday, Nov. 26.

An unstoppable performance by BBEís junior center, Amanda Illies, along with poor shooting from the Bulldogs, combined to bring about the defeat.

At the end of the first quarter, Paynesville trailed by only four, but the Jaguars pulled away in the second quarter, outscoring Paynesville 15-9.

The Bulldogs had a rough night, both from the line and from the field.

ďShooting 8 for 29 from the free throw line really hurt us,Ē said coach Cameron Mahlum.

Attempting to force some turnovers on their guards, the Bulldogs pressed full court, but Illies brought the ball up to relieve the pressure.

ďThis allowed some easy hoops,Ē said coach Mahlum.

The Bulldogs were led by senior Amanda Lieser, who had 17 points and five steals.

The Bulldogsí focus was to keep on LQPV's senior center Jenny Ulstad, who came into the game scoring mostly off rebounds.

ďThis game was a game of runs. Unfortunately, theirs was in the fourth quarter. Ulstad just couldnít miss,Ē added Mahlum.
