Bruins cruise past Grafton
Despite the hot shooting of Grafton senior Sara Nelson who finished with a a game high 26 points, the Fargo South Bruins used a balanced attack to roll to their tenth straight win, a 74-57 decision against the Spoilers at the Bruin gym Saturday night. South reversed rolls on Saturday and scored the first seven points of the game before Nelson began her hot shooting. Despite scoring 19 first quarter points, the Bruins only led by two at the quarter break.

The Spoilers had no answer for center Kristi Kilander, who scored 13 first half points. When Kilander wasn't scoring, Renae Whitford was, scoring 11 first half points from the perimeter. The Bruins led 44-29 at half, and were never seriously challenged after that, although Grafton did pull within twelve points late in the game. Both Whitford and Tamar Elias ended up scoring 20 points for the Bruins, while Kilander added 15 and Lindsay Hewitt scored 13. With the win the Bruins improve to 12-0 in the conference and remain in first place. Jamestown trails South by one game in the loss column. Next action for the Bruins is Thursday night when Grand Forks Central visits the Bruin gym.
