LESTER PRAIRIE – A cold shooting night combined with a slow start was too much to overcome for the Lester Prairie/Holy Trinity girls basketball team Monday night. The Bulldogs did not make a field goal from the field in the first eight minutes of the game, as the Tigers came out swinging in a 68-34 victory over the Bulldogs.
Belle Plaine opened the game on a 15-2 run as they came out ready to roll. After a dominant first half, the Tigers put the game away early in the second half. The Tigers, who led by 24 at the half, blew the game open even more as they started the second half on a 17-1 run to ruin the Bulldogs’ chances of a comeback.
