Bravettes rally past Minot High

BELCOURT – Turtle Mountain senior Gia Davis scored a game-high 29 points to help the Bravettes overcome a 19-point deficit in a 69-68 West Region victory over Minot High on Tuesday night.

Aside from Davis, Turtle Mountain had balanced scoring with four other players scoring seven points each.

MHS coach Todd Magnuson said his team played well, but was hurt by starters Cassie Askvig and Sierra Duttenhefer battling foul trouble before fouling out with plenty of time remaining.

Askvig, a sophomore forward, scored a team-high 18 points. Senior Jayden Moum and juniors Brooke Suko, Sophie Bengson and McKale Duttenhefer tallied 11 points apiece.

“We played strictly man-to-man against this team which I think surprised them,” MHS coach Todd Magnuson said. ‘Our kids played hard, but when you lose two of your starters early to foul trouble, it’s tough.”

The Majettes (1-2 overall, 0-2 region) host Jamestown at 7:30 p.m. Thursday at Magic City Campus.
