It was an ugly second quarter and in the end, it cost St. Mary's in girls basketball Friday night.

It was an ugly second quarter and in the end, it cost St. Mary's in girls basketball Friday night.

The Crusaders turned the ball over 10 times in the quarter, when they were outscored 18-3, and Burns held on for a 46-36 win in a semifinal of the Wells Fargo Advisors Christmas Classic at Cascade Christian High.

"You go from a 12-12 game to a 30-15 game," St. Mary's coach Rick Jackson said. "We had one bad quarter, that sort of cost us."

After being doubled up in the first half, the Crusaders chipped away at the deficit in the third quarter and opened the fourth quarter on a 4-0 run, cutting Burns' lead to 33-28 at the midway point in the quarter. However, after forcing a turnover, St. Mary's was unable to convert on the ensuing possession, which would have cut the deficit to one possession.

The Hilanders, who were held to only one field goal in the fourth quarter, made 11 of 16 free throws in the closing minutes to seal the victory.

"They (did) a good job of playing keep away," Jackson said. "We just couldn't close the gap because they hit their free throws and took care of the ball."

Mackenzie Krieser had 10 points and five steals to lead the Crusaders (6-2), the second-ranked team in Class 2A.

Taylor Lee had 17 points and Jamie Higle scored 13 for the top-ranked 3A Hilanders.
