T-Birds win first tournament game, then lose to number one seed
by Michael Mattison
The GFW Thunderbirds girls basketball team was ousted from Section 2A Tournament play when it was defeated by Mayer Lutheran 71-52 on Thursday. But before that, the T-Birds put together a nice home-court win in the opening round of the Section against Central Minnesota Christian 56-36.
GFW popped out to a nice 8-3 lead against CMC. Brynn Busse opened the scoring with a pull-up jumper in the lane and then an offensive putback. Nicole Duehn put in two free throws and followed them up with a layup.
