Tough First Quarter Allows BGM to Top Warhawks

North Mahaska changed its fortunes with an incredible run late in the first half of Tuesday’s South Iowa Cedar League basketball contest with BGM, but it was the Bears who won, 64-51. North Mahaska fell behind 18-7 after one period and trailed 33- 10 with 2 minutes 27 seconds to play in the first half. The Warhawks scored 13 unanswered and Matt Goemaat drilled a 3-pointer with one second left to cut the Bears’ lead 33-23. BGM outscored NM by just three points in the second half, but the Warhawks were unable to overcome the deficit.

“They played hard to get back into the game,” said NM coach Seth Streebin. “We just had shots that would not fall tonight.”
