MINOT - Competing in its season opener, the Dickinson Trinity girls basketball team hung tight in the early going with the defending Region 2 champions, but after a surge at the end of the first half, Thompson built a cushion it would not relinquish, defeating the Titans 54-30 during the Shootout on the Prairie on Friday, Nov. 30, from the Minot Auditorium.

Dickinson Trinity trailed 12-10 at the end of the first quarter, but were harmed by turnovers at the end of the second, allowing the Tommies to extend their advantage to 26-16 entering halftime. The game was put away in the third stanza, as the Titans could only muster four points.

With 11 players entering the scoring column, Thompson was led by senior forward Taylor Zak with 11 points. Titans sophomore Abbey Kubas led all scorers with 14 points.

“We had played a very good first half until late, and they converted our turnovers into points for their first double-digit lead,” Dickinson Trinity head coach Carter Fong said via email. “That was deflating, and we really didn’t recover. It’s early, it will take our team some time to gel, and we hope to get one game better tomorrow against Parshall.”
