Watford City played their most well rounded game of their WDA schedule so far this year, but ultimately fell to Bismarck St. Mary’s 72-60. Head coach David Gumke said, “They all played hard and with confidence. They gave themselves a chance to win the game. It was a one-point game at half and was very fun for our guys. They were locked in.”
Watford City jumped out to a 9-5 lead. The Wolves fell behind when the Saints went on a 14-4 run, but responded with solid play to take a 29-25 lead late in the first half. St. Mary’s freshman Christian Benning was the difference-maker in the second half. He scored 14 of his 22 points after halftime, including four 3-pointers.

The Wolves girls hit the road to Bismarck on Tuesday, Feb. 7, to take on the suddenly red-hot St. Mary’s Saints. St. Mary’s made three 3-pointers in a row to start the game and continued to grow the lead from that point forward. Watford City had a couple of nice stretches during the game, including a 9-0 run to end the first half.
