MILES CITY, Mont. -- After coming off a thrilling double-overtime victory against Dawson County (Mont.) on Thursday, the Dickinson High girls basketball team had the air let out of its sail.

MILES CITY, Mont. -- After coming off a thrilling double-overtime victory against Dawson County (Mont.) on Thursday, the Dickinson High girls basketball team had the air let out of its sail.

The Midgets turned the ball over 39 times and managed just 24 shots as Custer County dealt Dickinson a crushing 62-31 blow on Saturday.

"The bottom line was our inability to take care of the ball," Dickinson coach Greg Jung said. "We had a tough time getting shots off."

Custer County is the defending state champion in its class with its only two losses last year coming at the hands of Dickinson. This year, the Cowgirls took care of business.

"They're as good a team as we're going to see all year," Jung said. "They have really athletic kids and they're pressure is outstanding."

Dickinson didn't get into trouble until the second half. The Midgets were only down by seven at the half after a Custer County scorer nailed a 3-pointer at the buzzer.

But it was all downhill from there as Custer County held Dickinson to 11 second-half points while piling up 35.

Custer County was led by Torrie Cahill's 23 points.

Dickinson senior Whitley Abrahamson had three 3-pointers to lead the Midgets with 10 points.
