Basketball: Thunder can’t handle 6-5 post, lose to Foley 65-43

The Zimmerman girls had the rare chore of trying to stop a 6-foot-5 post Thursday evening and it didn’t go well.

Tara Dusharm of Foley shoveled in 25 points as the Falcons thumped the Thunder 65-43 at Zimmerman.

“Everything she made was from six feet and in,” said Thunder coach Lance Dalbey. “They got it inside to her and we couldn’t stop it.”

Lexi Funaro scored 15 points and Lexi Weimeri 14 for the Thunder.

Zimmerman is 1-4 in conference and 5-7 overall. Foley improved to 4-1 in the Granite Ridge and 8-3 overall.

The Thunder will take on Southwest Christian at Chaska on Saturday, 7:30 p.m.
