Bulldogs win one that counts against Broncs

BILLINGS — Butte High split an Eastern AA doubleheader on the road against Billings Senior Friday. The Bulldogs won the opener 7-5 before falling 18-8 in five innings of the nightcap.

Only the first game counted in conference standings. Game 2 was a nonconference tilt.

The Bulldogs improved to 5-2 in conference play. Butte High is 7-8 overall. Senior is 2-5 and 5-10.

Butte High will stay in Billings to take on Skyview on Saturday. Both games of the noon doubleheader count in conference standings.

Butte High 7, Billings Senior 5
Justyce Connole blasted a two-run home run to left field to cap a four-run first inning to give the Bulldogs a lead they never surrendered.

Kaidy McClafferty fanned seven batters as the freshman improved to 6-4 on the season. She walked three, scattered five hits and surrendered three earned runs.

“She just competed,” Butte High coach Ryan Stosich said of his young pitcher. “She’s such a competitor. She did really well today.”

Connole, Kennedi Ferriter, Amanda Spear and Bethany McLean each smacked two hits in Butte High’s 11-hit attack. McLean doubled, while Ashten McCloskey, Ellie Hoffenbacker and Tristan Walks added singles.

Anna Paine doubled to lead the Broncs. Sarah Bonner struck out six batters in the loss.
