Hawks go deep on Dogs

Hawks go deep on Dogs

BOZEMAN — Bozeman dialed up for down town Tuesday night, and the Hawks rolled to a 78-39 win over a short-handed Butte High boys’ basketball team.

The Hawks sank 14 3-pointers, and seven of those lone balls came as Bozeman broke the game open and then some with a 32-7 run in the fourth quarter.

Butte High seniors Kash Kelly and Trevyn Roth sat out the game because of sickness. Other Bulldogs played despite being far from 100 percent.

Carter Ash sank six 3-pointers and scored 22 points to lead the Hawks, who upped their record to 8-3 overall and 4-2 in the Eastern AA. Ryan Lonergan tossed in 18 points, and Hudson Willett tossed in 10.

In all, nine different Bozeman players scored in the win.

Danny McCloskey tossed in 16 points to lead the Bulldogs, who fell to 2-10 and 0-7. The Bulldog senior connected on three 3-point shots.

Clay Ferguson scored eight points, while Tommy Mellott netted seven. Butte High also got four points from Kale McCarthy and Jake Olson.

Butte High is back at home Friday to take on Billings Senior at the Butte Civic Center.
