ST. JOSEPH — It took an every-other-quarter explosion for St. Joseph-Ogden to win the 14th girls’ basketball regional championship in school history on Thursday.
The Spartans managed a combined eight points in the first and third quarters, but they erupted for 42 in the other periods and dispatched Bismarck-Henning 50-43.
HEYWORTH — The longer the game lasted, the closer the score became.
LeRoy’s Panthers zipped to a 13-1 first-quarter lead in Thursday’s Class 1A Heyworth Regional championship game against the Hornets and held on for a 45-40 victory.
CISSNA PARK — All it took was a few quick looks and a few strong words.
And with the seventh-ranked team bearing down on it, cutting a 19-point second-half lead all the way down to five, the fourth-ranked Cissna Park girls’ basketball team grew calm.

ST. JOSEPH — Bismarck-Henning girls’ basketball coach Mike Stephens laughs about it now, but he admits he was a bit uneasy when senior standout Lindsey Andrews struggled through an ankle injury late last month and was forced to take a week off practice.
CISSNA PARK — Minds tend to wander, especially when a larger goal lies ahead of the task at hand.
