WALLACE­— The Bonners Ferry High School girls basketball team was not messing around when they paid the Wallace Lady Miners a visit last Friday. The Badgers dominated from the first tip-off and never let their foot off the gas— handing Wallace a 54-20 loss.

“They’re a very good team,” Wallace coach Nichole Farkas said. “Their physical, they’ve got good fundamentals, and good shooting.”

The first quarter, where they were outscored 19-2, set the pace for the rest of the game and put the Miners in a hole that they just could not dig themselves out of. With an almost equally dominant second quarter (outscoring the Miners 13-4), the Badgers walked into the second half feeling confident.Wallace came out much stronger in the second by kicking their offense up a bit and limiting the damage, but still could not manage any sort of a comeback.

The bright points of Wallace’s effort in the game came from the determined play of Maggie Howard and Kimmie Krous, both of which led the Miner’s offense with a combined 17 points ( 8 and 9 respectively).

“Maggie Howard played her best game all season,” Farkas said. “ She was physical and strong.”

In all, Farkas sees this game as a learning experience and an example of how the team keeps playing even when things aren’t looking great on the scoreboard.

“Obviously our first half stunk, but our girls dont quit and kind of figured things out (at the end). They never do give up and they’re a great group of girls to coach.”

Now 3-6 (0-2 league) on the season, the Miners will look to rebound on Tuesday, Jan. 9 when they take on St. Maries High School on the road.
