After Braham went up 18-6 in the first half, Barnum went on a 14-1 run to take the lead. Barnum’s Brandon Newman engineered the comeback scoring 10 points during the run.

But Braham would go up by eight to close out the half. They then scored the first eight points of the second half to go up by 16. Freshman Ryan Larson engineered this run, scoring six of his team leading 26 points during the run. After this run, Barnum only cut Braham’s lead to single digits twice. Braham’s largest lead of the game would be 17 points.

Rush City Sweeps Braham 50 to 46 in Girls Basketball

Thursday, February 12th, 2015 at 11:41 pm

Braham BombersRush City Tigers

Until this year, Rush City’s girls basketball hadn’t beaten Braham since 2006. This year that changed.

The Tigers already knocked off the Bombers in January. On Thursday they knocked off the Bombers again; this time by a score of 50 to 46.

Rush City led the entire game. They scored the game’s first 12 points and held Braham scoreless until more than three minutes had gone by in the game. The Tigers’ largest lead of the game was 13 points.

Braham was able to claw back within striking distance. But they could only cut the deficit as low as one point. After Angela Bendickson scored to make cut Rush City’s lead to 47-46, the Tigers’ Elena Herberg was fouled. She hit two free throws to put Rush City up 49-46 (ironically this was the final score of the first meeting between these schools this year). Then with 6.6 seconds to play Kayla Nelson was fouled and made one of two free throws to put the Tigers up by four and seal the victory.

The win improves Rush City to 16-2. They have now won 16 consecutive games. Their next game will be next Friday against Aitkin.

Braham falls to 13-9 with the loss. Their next game will be against Moose Lake-Willow River on Tuesday.
