The Lady Warriors struggled to catch up, falling down 28-18 at one point in the third quarter. In the fourth quarter the BRHS girls started to claw back, but the deficit proved too much.

Kira Polk was the leading scorer for the Lady Warriors with 14, Rebecca Brink scored 12, and Christina McElwee added 8 points.

The Boy’s team also faced the Point Hope Harpooners Friday, but fared better in a commanding 84-42 victory.

The boys capitalized on stellar defense, jumping out to an eight point lead in the first quarter and then opening it up to take a 39-18 halftime lead.
