Page 8 March 12, 2009 B ucs play in postseason By Miranda Dietz For The News On March 3, the Beach Bucs made Buccaneer history when they played the Hettinger Black Devils in the championship game in the district tournament. In the first quarter, there was excitement from the teams, the coaches, and the crowd, as the Devils lead the scoring, Bucs 10 to Devils 12. In the second quarter the boys really showed their quickness and ability while using strategy to score. The Black Devils played good defense and had a slight height advantage over the Bucs. The Bucs used a motion offense to penetrate the Devils' defense and scored some nice three-pointers. The score at halftime was Bucs 22 to Devils 16. In the third quarter, the thrill of the game started to get even more exciting as the boys started to get hasty and both teams started to foul. The stress of the game started to take an effect on everyone as the Bucs held a firm lead with a score of Bucs 38 to Devils 21. In the fourth quarter, the Bucs started getting called for multiple fouls as they tried to gain control over the ball. Finally the time was running out for the Devils to catch up. The Bucs lead by nearly 20 points at the buzzer with a score of Bucs 51 and Devils 36. The Bucs of the 2008-2009 teams made Buccaneer history, with both the girls and boys basketball teams making it to districts for the first time. As of Monday of this week, the boys were only three games away from going to state, and the coaches and team members hope to see you there. On Monday, the Bucs defeated Richardton-Taylor 55-49 in the opening game of the Region 7 tour- nament in Dickinson. The win avenged a loss for Beach as R-T ended their run for a region championship last season. Jake Tescher led the team with 16 points. Justin Maus chipped in with 13.

The ani- mal was a 1-2.5 year-old male that weighed 101 pounds. The cat appeared in good condition and had about a half dozen porcupine quills on the chest area. The sixth and seventh mountain lions were five-month-old males taken Nov. 15 just south of the north unit of Theodore Roosevelt National Park by two deer hunters from the same hunting party. The cats were traveling together. The eighth lion was taken Feb. 23 southeast of Watford City by a hunter using hounds. The 6-year-old male cat was healthy and weighed 170 pounds. It was the largest male harvested to date in North Dakota. No cats have been taken in Zone 2 during the 2008-09 hunting sea- son. "This is not unexpected, because most of our lion habitat is in the western part of the state," Fecske said. "Lions that disperse from this region apparently don't settle down on the prairie, so the chances of harvesting a lion in Zone 2 are much smaller than taking a lion in Zone 1." The season in Zone 2 closes March 31.
