MINOT - Behind the scoring of senior guard Gabby Jung and junior forward Audrey Rodakowski, the Dickinson High girls basketball team picked up its second victory in as many nights following a 56-46 triumph over Minot on Saturday, Dec. 8, from the Magic City Campus gym.
Jung had 13 of her team-high 18 points in the first half. Knocking down a pair of 3-pointers, the senior accounted for more than half of her team’s points, aiding the Midgets to a 25-20 advantage at the half.
As the teams returned to the floor, the Majettes raced out to a six-point lead midway through the second half. However, the Midgets remained determined during the comeback, distributing their offense through six different players. Rodakowski led the bunch, sinking eight of her 12 points in the final 18 minutes.
Junior guard Peyton Selle added nine points while junior forward Taylor Nelson had eight, including two 3-pointers in the second half.
“This was a team win from everyone who played, to everyone on the bench,” Midgets head coach James Hayden said via text. “We won this game by being a unit and playing as hard as we could. We got down six with around nine minutes to go and fought through the adversity, trusted the process, and ended out on top to get a very tough road win.”
Minot junior forward Allie Nelson paced all scorers with 19 points, 14 of which were poured in after the halftime break.
