Girls Basketball loses.
Nuggets 43, Thief River Galls 44.
The Lady Nuggets gave the crowd a nail biter to open the season. Up 26-24 at the half, the Nuggets battled with intensity with Jody Noreen knocking down two clutch free throws to put the girls up 42-40 with :29 remaining in regulation time. But Thief River found their way to the hoop to tie it up 42-42 sending the season opener into OT. The Prowlers were first to break the tie. Drew Sannes closed the gap making 1 from the charity stripe to bring the Nuggets to 43:44 at 1:11. The Nuggets shut the Prowlers next attempt down leaving the ladies in position to pull ahead, but it was not to be. Thanks for an exciting opener girls and best of luck on the season!
