LINCOLN – The BDS girls basketball team struggled to score in the final stanza while Wynot wasted time, leading to a 53-20 victory for the Blue Devils over the Eagles in the D2 semifinals.
Trailing by one to start the second half, BDS turned to Regan Alfs for support and she answered. Alfs went off for nine points while BDS outscored Wynot, 17-13 in the third period and seemed to have momentum. The fourth quarter is where the game drastically changed. Alfs had an early bucket in the final period, but the Eagles would never score again. After regaining the lead, the Blue Devils went to keep away mode and slowed the pace of the game drastically. Wynot would outscore BDS, 18-2 in the fourth while controlling the time of possession and slowly sucked the life out of BDS.
Alfs led all scorers with 20 points. Macy Kamler contributed 10 points. BDS turned the ball over 17 times, including 10 in the first quarter and also struggled from the free throw line, converting four of 11 chances. Wynot was led by Kaitlyn Heimes’s 13 points. Michaela Lange chipped in 12. The Blue Devils hit six three pointers as a team and went 10-15 from the free throw line.
