DOLLAR BAY - The Dollar Bay girls basketball team overcame a four-point halftime deficit to outscore the Hancock girls 24-10 in the final two quarters for a 41-31 win Friday. Julia Daavettila and Megan Kangas led the Bays with 12 points each.
"We came out in the second half, cut our turnovers to less than half of what we had and came to life on the boards," coach Steve Krahling said. "We were down at the half and came out and played much better."
Hancock was led by Quincy Lorenzetti with nine points, all from beyond the arc.
The Bays, who lost the first meeting between the two 53-21 in December, are now 2-3 overall going into a Tuesday game at Chassell.

HOUGHTON - The Houghton girls' basketball team exploded for 25 second-quarter points and the rout was on as the Gremlins blew out Lake Linden-Hubbell Friday night.
Nine different players scored for Houghton and junior Elisa Jurmu led all scorers with 26.
According to head coach Julie Filpus, Houghton was able to get out and run early.
"Initially, I think we were able to use our fast break to get some high percentage lay-ups. Alexa Johnson came in and hit some back-to-back threes and that spread their defense out," Filpus said. "We just found the open player tonight and easily the best shooting performance of the season for us."
The Gremlins never let up, holding the Lakes - who were led by Abby Sutherland's 10 points - to just 14 second half points.
"For us, just starting off with good ball pressure and making sure we're denying the pass to the wings as best we can. I thought at times our girls rebounded well both offensively and defensively," Filpus said.

BARAGA - The Baraga girls' basketball team dominated the second quarter, and then dominated the rest of the game in a 50-21 win over Watermeet.
The visiting Nimrods opened with a 9-6 lead in the first quarter, but the Vikings stormed back with a 20-1 run in the second quarter to permanently take the lead.
"It was a really good second quarter," Baraga coach Mariah Dunham said. "A 20-1 quarter, you can't beat that.
"We really rebounded the heck out of the ball. As soon as the quarter began we just took care of things."
Jenna Heikkinen led Baraga with 14 points. The JV team won 77-5.
