The No. 1-seeded Hamilton Broncs narrowly avoided a major upset during this afternoon’s semifinal game of the Southwestern A Divisional tournament.

Hamilton topped Butte Central 50-49 in a nail-biter at the Maroon Activities Center. STATS

Taylor Goligoski’s 16 points led four Broncs in double figures. Sami Kratofil scored 13, while Jaylee Albert and Brianna Huggans each scored 10.

Sierra Pica scored 10 points to lead the Maroons. Selby Paffhausen, Teresa Piazzola and Mollie Peoples each scored seven.

Butte Central will play Corvallis at 11 a.m. Saturday at Montana Tech. The winner of that game plays for third place at 5 p.m. at the MAC.

GIRLS Southwestern 'A' Divisional ******* GAME 6 SEMI-FINAL *******

Laurel girls 59, Sidney 40

Abbie Lohof scored 19 points and Allie McGrath had 13 as top-seeded Laurel eventually ground down fourth-seeded Sidney with a 59-40 Eastern A girls divisional semifinal win Friday afternoon at Rimrock Auto Arena at MetraPark.

Laurel took a four-point lead into the fourth quarter, but the Locomotives quickly distanced themselves with a 12-3 run.

They made 11 of 11 free throws over the game's final 2:24. McGrath was 11-for-11 from the line for the game.

Both teams were hit with foul trouble to key players early, but it seemed to affect the Eagles more. They shot 60 percent in their first-round win on Thursday, but the combination of fouls and a good Laurel game plan limited Sidney to 26 percent shooting Friday.

Lexi Prevost had 15 and Kortney Mayer 12 to lead the Eagles, who will play Glendive at 9 a.m. on Saturday morning in a loser-out contest.

Laurel will play either Billings Central or Miles City on Saturday at 6:30 p.m. for the divisional title.

Cowgirls storm back

The Eastern A girls basketball divisional semifinal may have seemed lost.

But hope? The Miles City Cowgirls had plenty of that, even 13 points down.

The Cowgirls are playing for their first divisional championship since 2007 by first rallying, and then outdueling, Billings Central 61-54 on Friday night at Rimrock Auto Arena at MetraPark.

It wasn't a stunning turnaround as much as it was impressive. The Cowgirls got knocked pretty hard before getting back into the game by halftime after trailing 27-14 midway through the second.

"It was insane," said Miles City senior Beth Sutter, who was one of three Cowgirls in double figures. "It was probably the best experience I've ever had."

Sutter and the third-seeded Cowgirls (12-8) can top that experience Saturday night when they'll face top-seeded Laurel for the tournament title. The Locomotives, the defending Class A state champion, defeated Sidney 59-40 in Friday's first semifinal.

Abbie Lohof had 19 points, Allie McGrath added 13 on 11-for-11 free-throw shooting, and Taylor Ludwig, Dalayna Christenson, Hailey Spitzer and Paige Hodges helped Laurel (15-4) get to the championship by hitting a combined 8-for-10 from the floor.

Laurel turned a 36-32 third-quarter lead into a runaway by shooting 3-for-5 from the floor and making all 15 free-throw attempts in the fourth quarter.

"We just all get along and have chemistry together, it's as easy as that," said Lohof, who battled some foul trouble but managed to shoot 6-for-11 from the floor and pick up a game-high nine rebounds. "We played all summer together, we've practiced all season ... This is the time we want to come together, and we did tonight."

Miles City 61, Central 54

Makena Ellingson had 20 points — 18 in the first half — Shaylee Singleton scored 18 and Sutter added 11 as the Cowgirls withstood Central's early onslaught.

Allie Lucas scored three seconds into the game and following a 15-7 run, the Rams led 27-14. Miles City closed the first half with 15 unanswered points, though, for a 29-27 halftime lead. The teams traded the lead nine times in the second half and the score was tied five times.

Singleton banked in a 3-pointer from the left wing for a 56-54 lead with 1:15 left in the game, and Central, the No. 2 seed, never did answer.

"We had to fight with everything we had, and we did," said Miles City coach Jacqui Engstrom, whose team has beaten Central two straight times now. "We kept coming back and that's what we've been fighting for all year. We set that goal and the girls weren't done until they were done. So it was an awesome job by them."

Central also put three players in double figures. Justyn Juhl, who fouled out with 3:59 to play, led the Rams with 17 points. Lucas had 14 points and Melissa Koerber 12.

The Rams (14-5) play Hardin (7-12) in a loser-out game at 9 a.m. at Rocky Mountain College.

"Some things are out of our hands now," said Central coach Levi Osborne, who gave credit to Miles City for the win. "But we're going to try and take care of the things that are in our hands and that's 9 a.m. tomorrow morning against Hardin."

Copperheads head to title game 

Updated: February 28, 2014 at 10:25 pm

Courtney Moodry hit the go-ahead 3-pointer with 16 seconds left Friday night, and Anaconda’s girls’ basketball team came from behind to beat Dillon 46-43 in the semifinals of the Southwestern A Divisional tournament at the Maroon Activities Center. STATS

The win sends the Copperheads to Saturday’s 8 p.m. championship game against Hamilton. Dillon heads to Saturday’s 11 a.m. loser-out game against Stevensville at the MAC.

Senior Taylor Flynn scored 16 points and grabbed nine rebounds — both game-highs — while Moodry, also a senior, scored 10 of her 13 points in the second half.

Molly Huber and Shea Forsberg each scored six points in the win.

Cierra Lamey’s 14 points paced the Beavers, who led 31-22 after three quarters. The Copperheads outscored the Beavers 24-12 in the final frame.

Jordan Peterson, Courtney Linder and Rachael Nye each scored six for Dillon.
