Energetic Butte High boys roll past Helena High

HELENA — What a difference a couple of days makes.

Two days after a disappointing home loss to Helena Capital, the Butte High boys’ basketball rebounded in a big way Saturday. Billy Kelly poured in 16 points to lead the way as the Bulldogs rolled to a 62-39 win over Helena High.

“It was a big win for the Dawgs,” Butte High coach Matt Luedtke said. “We had great energy tonight.”

Kelly was one of eight Bulldogs to dent the score book in the win that evened Butte’s record at 1-1. He was joined in double figures by Jake Olson, who scored 13.

Mikey O’Dell scored nine points in the win that saw Kooper Klobucar come off the bench to score eight, Blake Drakos knock down seven, Cale Stenson score four, Eric Loos net three and Kenley Leary toss in two.

Cameron Gurnsey and Jace Stenson also contributed for the Bulldogs, who led 44-32 heading into the fourth quarter.

Austin Zeiler scored 11 points to lead the Bengals.

Butte High will play at Kalispell Glacier on Saturday. The Bulldogs are home again Saturday against Kalispell Flathead.
