In its first game of 2012-13, the Rush City girls basketball team faced possibly its toughest opponent of this season when it hosted No. 7 state- ranked Braham.
The Tigers put up a valiant fight against the Bombers.
The Bombers are led by Minnesota’s all-time career scoring leader for high school basketball (Rebecca Dahlman with over 4,000 points), but Rush City was downed 75-22.
“It was a tough way to start the season,” coach Mark Henrich said. “Braham played well and forced us into playing their style. We handled the pressure some of the time, but need to be more consistent with how we play. We are a young team and will need to learn from this game and start to improve.”
The Rush City girls basketball team will travel to Hinckley to face the Hinckley-Finlayson Jaguars 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 6 before hosting the Ogilvie Lions 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 11.
