Offense hard to come by in Trinity's win over Beulah

BEULAH -- The Dickinson Trinity girls basketball team got its New Year's Eve celebration off the ground a little early on Saturday, topping Beulah 40-29 on Saturday afternoon.

BEULAH - The Dickinson Trinity girls basketball team got its New Year's Eve celebration off the ground a little early on Saturday, topping Beulah 40-29 on Saturday afternoon.

It was a bizarre shooting day for both teams, as Trinity won despite shooting 21.8 percent overall and the Miners were just 4 of 33 from the field for the game (12.1 percent).

"We played hard-nosed man-to-man defense, but we committed a bunch of fouls," Titans head coach Carter Fong said, "and when they converted at the line, it kept them in the game."

Because of 22 personal fouls called on Trinity, the Miners (1-8, 0-4 Region 7) lived at the line, going 21 of 32 at the stripe. Beulah turned the ball over 13 times and did not make a 3-pointer.

Beulah's Erin Walcker led all players with 16 points, going 1 of 9 from the field and 14 of 14 at the free-throw line. Dayton Keltner was Beulah's second-leading scorer with 11 after shooting 3 of 12 from the field and 5 of 12 at the line.

The Titans limited the Miners to fewer than 10 points in each of the first three quarters.

Trinity had its own offensive struggles as well, though. They shot 12 of 55 overall and were just 6 of 25 from long-range.

"We had trouble finding any rhythm on offense," Fong said. "Their zone slowed the pace of the game and we were pretty cold from the field."

Abby Jones hit four 3-pointers to lead the Titans with 12 points, and Jordie McNeilly followed with 10 points. Lauren Stafford scored seven points, and Josie Glaser supplied six.

Trinity improved to 3-5 overall with a 2-0 mark in Region 7. The Titans return to court at 7 p.m. Monday against Killdeer at the Knights of Columbus Activities Center.

"We will certainly take a win on the road in the region," Fong said, "but we hope we can put together a better effort the next time out."
