Photo by Tanna Yeoumans The Lady Badgers opened Intermountain League play with a Jan. 6 win against visiting Priest River. They didn’t fare as well three days later, losing 55-43 at Timberlake on Jan. 9.

SPIRIT LAKE — A spirited comeback effort wasn’t enough as the Bonners Ferry girls’ basketball team traveled to Spirit Lake Tuesday, Jan. 9, to face Timberlake, the two-time defending 3A state champions.

The Tigers led by as much as 16 points late in the third, but the Lady Badgers rallied to cut that lead to four points with less the four minutes remaining in the game. Timberlake recovered and was able to hold off Bonners Ferry the rest of the way.

Miranda Wenk led the Badgers, scoring 22 points and grabbing 11 rebounds before fouling out late in the game. Kadi Bateman contributed 12 points and Jerzie Pluid had 10 rebounds.

Bonners Ferry 13 8 11 11 — 43

Timberlake 15 13 15 12 — 55

Bonners Ferry: Skeen 1, Pluid 4, Villelli 0, Wenk 22, Burt 0, Bateman 12, Ansley 2, Liermann 0, Ram 0, E. Blackmore 2.

Timberlake: McKeeley 6, Starr 16, Kelley 8, Kroneberg 4, Soumas 8, Jessen 10, Jezek 3, Willis 0.

The Lady Badgers now have a 1-1 record in the Intermountain League and are 11-3 overall.
