Now, it’s crunch time. There are no more do-overs and whoopsy-daisies. Beulah is advancing to postseason play and hoping to make the state tournament. They will have to earn first or second place at the regional tournament next weekend in Watford City to advance.
Beulah head coach Alec Battest gave his team a stern discussion about playing engaged and assertively after they were swept by Minot last week at home. Battest said team showed signs of summer fatigue after the Fourth of July and the Mercer County Fair.
Battest said his team will have to decide, for themselves, if they want to finish the season strongly or lacking zest.
“You just have to play through it I guess. There’s no recipe to get through it. You just have to hope that they start bringing it again. It’s just got to happen. I don’t know what to do. We just have to decide as a squad that we are going to bring it,” Battest said.
