Braham Girls Over Barnum 60-49
It was a great atmosphere in Braham last night as two 20-2 teams squared off. Last year’s 1A Champion Barnum was ahead at several points during the second half, but couldn’t topple last year’s 2A runner-up Braham; final score 60-49 Braham.
Senior Liz Anderson keyed the win for Braham, connecting on four 3-pointers in the second half – two of which came on successive possessions and moved Braham from down three to ahead by three. Becca Dahlman had a game-high 29 points as well, and her sister Hannah Dahlman helped limit Barnum’s Katie Myhre to just two points in the second half.
Barnum played a very solid game and it was easy to see why they are regarded as one of the best teams in the state regardless of class. Senior Jessica Newman was aggressive all night offensively and her 16 points in the second half helped keep Barnum in the ballgame.
Be watching for tournament bracket announcements… both of these teams have the talent to make deep runs in March.
