BISMARCK, N.D. - The Century Patriots girls basketball team defeated the Devils Lake Firebirds 69-61 Saturday night at the Bismarck Event Center.

Century Head Coach Ron Metz was happy to fill his season-long goal.

"It feels awesome when you start a season, you have goals in mind. One of our goals was to get here and to play our best and see what happens in the end, so when you win its just like extra icing on the cake," said Metz.

Century junior Lauren Ware won the Gatorade Player of the Year and she led all scorers with 26 points to go along with 15 rebounds. Ware was also named Class A Girls Tournament MVP.

Senior Lilly Keplin finished with 20 points in her final game as a Patriot.
