LADY BRUINS LOOK STRONG IN OPENER OVER HILMAR - COLFAX WINS
Bear River jumped out to a 20~3 first quarter lead in first round action of the Sac-Joaquin Section Div IV playoffs against a much lesser team from Hilmar on way to a 63-31 victory.
Hilmar struggled to execute at both ends of the floor all night. Bear River's coach Jeff Bickmore went to his bench early and often as his second unit had very little trouble with keeping pace with the visiting Yellow-jackets. For the on set of the game the Lady Bruins looked like the #1 seed as they went into the locker room at the half with a 37~13 lead.
Someone in the student section said it best, "this game is bad, do you think we can get our money back."
Hilmar did knock down a few 3 point shots in the final 3 minutes of the 3rd which gave the visiting fans a little to cheer about as the quarter closed with the score 50~25.
The final quarter was a little sloppy as Bear River moves to the second round winning 63~31.
Colfax also won handily in their first round game on Tuesday.
