Townsend, Belgrade upends Park
The word “hot” might just be an understatement for describing what the Belgrade High School girls’ basketball team accomplished in their Central Class A Conference matchup at Park Friday evening.
Entering the game, which was the Lady Rangers’ first at home in more than a month, the Panthers had converted a total of 22 3-point shots on the season.
But in improving to 7-5 with a 68-41 win over the Lady Rangers, Belgrade sank nine of 22 attempts from behind the arc.
“We played good basketball — really good basketball,” said Park coach Jon Willyerd. “They just shot the lights out — and they weren’t easy shots. We did a good job of contesting all of them.”
Saturday, Park returned to the hardwood against a Townsend squad that has bettered six teams this season by 40 points or more.
Townsend, the No. 1-ranked squad in the Associated Press Class B Power Polls, improved to 14-0 with a 62-20 victory over Park.
The nonconference matchup started well enough for the Lady Rangers. Early on in the first, the game was knotted at 6-all.
But by quarter’s end, the Bulldogs led 15-6.
By intermission, Townsend had increased is advantage to 32-6.
“We’ve played three really good teams this season,” said Willyerd of Townsend, Butte Central and Havre. “Townsend’s the best. They do everything the right way.”
The Bulldogs limited Park to just two 2-point field goals in the game. The bulk of the Lady Rangers’ scoring came from the free throw line, where Park converted 13 of 19 attempts.
Macy Ricketts paced Park against Townsend with 11 points and Emily Fochs added four.
A night earlier, Park got a balanced scoring effort in the game with four Lady Rangers scoring four or more points, but Autumn Hirsh and Dylan Fowler each scored 16 points for the Panthers.
“It was the second best game we’ve played all season,” said Willyerd. “They just kept making 3-pointer after 3-pointer and pulled away from us for the win.”
Muriel Kelly paced Park with 12 points, Megan Schoenen added 10 points, Ricketts finished with eight, and Emily Fochs added four.
Unfortunately for the Lady Rangers, this week’s schedule will be just as arduous.
Tuesday, Park travels to Dillon for a nonconference matchup with the No. 3-ranked Beavers. On Saturday, the Rangers entertain Butte Central, the No. 2-ranked team in Class A.
“The only thing we can do is go out and do our best,” said Willyerd. “We’re playing really well as a team right now, and it’s unfortunate that it’s not showing up in the win column for us.”
With the weekend sweep, Park fell to 1-12 overall. The Rangers are 0-6 against their Central Class A Conference rivals.
