The Blooming Prairie Awesome Blossoms girls’ basketball team played host to Medford in a Gopher Conference matchup Tuesday evening, and Maggie Bruns scored 12 of her career-best 15 points in the second half, plus Megan Oswald added a double-double of 17 points and 13 rebounds as the Blossoms downed the Tigers for their fifth win a row 58-41.
Blooming Prairie led 29-20 at the half, thanks in large part to Oswald scoring 11 of her 17 points in the game in the first half, and while Medford opened the second half with a run to cut the Blossom’s lead to four points, Bruns’s 12 second half points helped BP restore a double-digit lead on their way to the win.
Besides Bruns and Oswald, Bobbie Bruns added 14 points and led the Blossoms in assists with seven, Emily Miller tallied five points, Allison Krohnberg added four points and Anna Pauly chipped in three points and eight rebounds in the win.
Blooming Prairie now stands at 10-1 overall on the season and 8-0 in the Gopher Conference, and they return to action at home Friday night versus United South Central.
