Girls fend off Bluejay comeback

Things seemed well in hand for the New Prague High School girls basketball team at halftime of their game with Waseca Thursday, Dec. 30. New Prague led by 17 points and had forced the Bluejays into a number of turnovers using their full-court pressure.

But Waseca fought back in the second half. Lexie Ulfers, a Minnesota State University-Mankato signee, had 20 points as the Bluejays closed to within four points with about five minutes remaining. The Trojans clamped down with their defense and outscored Waseca 16-4 in the final minutes to claim a 61-45 win.
