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.
