WATFORD CITY - The Dickinson High girls basketball team won consecutive games for the first time this season with a 45-36 victory Monday at Class B Watford City.
The Midgets had defeated Minot on Friday at home and followed it up with their second win over Watford City this season. Dickinson (4-11) had previously defeated the Wolves (11-5) on Dec. 20 at DHS gymnasium.
The teams were tied at 22 at halftime on Monday, but Dickinson won the second half 23-14 to leave with the win.
“We knew Watford would come out strong and play aggressively. They slowed us down the first half and forced us into some turnovers,” Dickinson head coach James Hayden said. “But in the second half we were able to pull together, take better care of the ball and finish out with a nice road win.”
Peyton Selle had 13 points to lead the Midgets, and Mariah Mortensen followed with 10. Gabby Jung and Megan Erickson each scored seven for Dickinson.
Watford City’s MacKenzie Sparby led all players with 19 points.
“I was proud of how we regrouped in the second half,” Hayden said, “and we now look forward to preparing for a tough Legacy team on Thursday.”
