Despite leading by only two points at halftime of Tuesday's 52-33 win over Enderlin in the first round of the Barnes County Tournament, Maple Valley coach Jeff Miller knew his team was on the verge of opening the game up.
It was just a matter of getting the knockout blow, so to speak.
"There were a couple of times in the second quarter where you could feel they were kind of on the ropes," Miller said. "We had a five or six point lead and then we'd turn the ball over a couple of times and they'd be right back in it.
Valley City High School senior Allyson Suhr opened the Barnes County Tournament with the type of game that any post player would love to have.
With a few inches of height over the Litchville-Marion Montpelier girls, Suhr was able to consistently low into the post for open shots and grabbed rebounds with ease.
In the 59-26 win over the Rebels, Suhr finished with 26 points, as many as the opposing squad. But sheâ€™s not the type to take credit for it.

VALLEY CITY, N.D. (AP) â€” A North Dakota Department of Transportation official says that the state will receive $100 million less from the federal government than is needed to repair flood damage.
The Valley City Times-Record reports that Local Government Engineer Paul Benning sent a memo to state officials outlining the gap in funding vs. need.
The Barnes County Highway Department closed 28th Street southeast this week as underground springs and unpredictable temperatures have created a thick sheet of wet ice east and uphill from County Road 19.
The glacier in question creeps over a steep section of road and into an unprotected ravine, threatening to take motorists with it. The deep roadside ditch plummets approximately 100 feet down near the John Froelich farm south of Lake Ashtabula.
Minn. Twins stopping in VC
Members of the the Minnesota Twins baseball team will be stopping by Valley City next week as part of the teamâ€™s 52nd annual Twins Winter Caravan.

The lunch will include a hot dog, chips, and a drink for $5, as well as a brief program with a question and answer session and prizes.
While a 13th place finish doesn't always look great on paper, the Valley City High School wrestling team came out of the Bismarck Rotary Tournament last weekend having accomplished plenty.
Not only did the Hi-Liners finish in the top half of a tournament with multiple out-of-state teams and nearly every Class A school, but the team finished with four placers.
Additionally, senior Brandon Larson broke the school's career win record and sophomore Zach Doty broke the 100-win mark for his career on the tournament's opening day.
