Lady Hornets run out of gas vs. PR

The Frazee Lady Hornets ran out of gas, as Pelican Rapids used a strong second half to pull away for an 85-61 victory in Heart O'Lakes Conference basketball action Friday night in Pelican Rapids.

The two teams battled back and forth in a fast-paced contest that saw the Vikings (15-5 overall, 5-2 HOL) settle in for a 36-32 halftime lead.

The torrid pace continued in the second half, but the Lady Hornets (9-11 overall, 2-5 HOL) were unable to keep up with Pelican Rapids, as the Vikings shot 65.6 percent (21-for-32) in the second half to help them take the victory.

"It's not that we played that badly," head coach Dave Conzemius said. "They have a lot of weapons on offense and they all seemed to be hitting their shots."

Alexis Tappe and Ashley Bachmann each led Frazee in scoring with 15 points apiece. McKinzie Tangen and Taylor Tappe both added 10 points.

Tangen and the Tappes each had six rebounds, and Alexis Tappe also added eight assists.

Bailey Strand was 5-for-5 on three-pointers to lead the Vikings with a game-high 23 points.

The Lady Hornets are back in action on Thursday night when they host Breckenridge at 7:30 p.m.

Frazee will also be at home on Friday night when they host Barnesville at 6:15 p.m. in the first game of a boy/girl doubleheader.
