BISMARCK - The Dickinson Trinity girls basketball team sustained a slow start and never recovered on Saturday, losing 46-30 against Kidder County.

The Pirates (9-2) led 13-7 after the first quarter and built from there, leading by 11 at halftime and by 21 after three quarters.

The Titans (3-9) turned the ball over 13 times and shot just 31 percent from the field in the loss. Trinity didn’t score more than seven points in any quarter until the fourth.

“We aren’t playing with a lot of confidence on offense right now,” head coach Carter Fong said. “Their press and zone have gaps, but we didn’t do a very good job of attacking them.”

Grace Benz scored 16 points for Kidder County, and teammate Morgan Ziesch followed with 10. Madelyn Schmidt added eight points for the Pirates.

“We have to be more physical on defense,” Fong said. “They got to the rim too easily, whether it was a cutter, an offensive rebounder or on dribble penetration.”

Emma Veverka, Josie Glaser, Jordie McNeilly and Lauren Stafford all scored six points for the Titans. Sami Daniel, Alexa Walby and Sarah Kerkman all added two points each.
