Grizzlies 53, Bears 38
Logan overcame a third quarter deficit to upend Bear River Thursday at home.
Not only did the Grizzlies (5-10, 2-2) get the win, but they blew the doors off the Bears (1-11, 0-3) in the fourth, outscoring them 25-6.
âThey were in a zone that kind of stymied us late in the first half,â Logan head coach Josh Zentner said. âWe didnât get much out of anything in third, and then we switched to a 2-1-2 zone, put Tori Craner at the high post, and really we just hit shots.â
Zentner said that Samalie Prom and Kira Peterson cashed in on a few steals in the fourth quarter for easy buckets and that the Grizzlies rebounded well, which helped to turn the game around.
Peterson and Liz Timmerman finished with 15 points apiece.
Logan allowed just one field goal in the fourth quarter, and after allowing 25 points in the first half, gave up just 13 in the second half.
Next up for Logan is a home game against Ben Lomond, Tuesday at 7 p.m.
