Once Beaver Dam’s girls basketball team got the opportunity to run against Hartford Tuesday night, it was not going stop.

The hosts flattened the Orioles with an overwhelming 44-9 run while forcing 14 turnovers in an 18-minute stretch to pull away for a 62-35 Little Ten victory.

“We were able to get some transition opportunities in the second quarter and that got us going,” BD coach Tim Chase said.

BD (9-3, 4-0 LTC) and Hartford (4-6, 2-2) were tied at 16 early in the second quarter when Kiley Riteris connected on a 3-pointer. That shot started a quick 9-0 burst that opened up a cushion for the hosts.

A pair of baskets on consecutive possessions by Hartford cut the deficit to four. But a small tweak to BD’s defense set off another run.

The hosts switched from a man to zone defense and the move paid immediate dividends.

Megan Kaul scored on a layup and stole the ball on the ensuing possession, finding an open Jenna Sether to make it 29-21.

BD forced three more turnovers and finished with 11 transition points in the opening half.

In the final minute of play, BD had two offensive rebounds and Brianna Johnson scored on a putback with two seconds left to give the hosts a 36-21 halftime advantage.

“I thought the last possession of the first half was huge for us with those two reloads,” Chase said.

BD stifled the Orioles over the next 12 minutes, holding the visitors to one basket in than span. BD led by as much as 35 before a basket by Britney Goodreau finally stopped the run.

Riteris and Sether fueled the massive run for the hosts. Riteris hit four 3s on the night and finished with 12 points to go along with six assists, three steals and four rebounds.

Meanwhile, Sether broke through with a line of 12 points, five rebounds and four steals off the bench.

“Kiley’s defense has picked up lately and she was all over the glass tonight,” Chase said. “I thought Jenna got going as well. With her, it’s still about getting into the flow of the game but she’s getting better at it.”

Kalyn Gebhardt chipped in a dozen points of her own while Johnson hauled in 10 rebounds.

Kaul added nine points and five assists for BD, which head to Wisconsin Lutheran on Friday for a showdown with the Vikings (8-1, 4-0).

“Wisco’s going to be tough,” Chase said. “They have a lot of seniors and playing down there is tough.

“One team will walk away happy and in first place in the conference.”
