FARGO - Senior center Faith Dooley scored 11 points and grabbed 18 rebounds to lead Central Cass to a 33-22 victory over Beach in the third-place game of the North Dakota Class B girls basketball state tournament Saturday at the Fargodome.
Both teams struggled from the field.
The No. 7-ranked Buccaneers shot 10 percent (6 for 55) and never got into a rhythm on offense.
“There should be more life in a game than that,” Beach head coach Bob Waldal said. “We wanted to get everyone in the game early and they did the same thing. You wished the kids would have played better, but it didn’t work out that way.”
Senior guard Hailee Farstveet, who was named senior athlete of the year, scored eight points and added five rebounds for the Buccaneers (23-4).
Senior guard Abby Cramer added eight points and three assists for the No. 8-ranked Squirrels (24-4).
Central Cass shot 28 percent from the field (15-for -53) and led 12-8 at halftime.
Junior guard Taylor Abraham added six points for Beach.
The Buccaneers were making their fifth-straight state tournament appearance.
“I’m happy for the kids,” Waldal said. “They got to the state tournament. They tried hard and ended up getting fourth place.”
