BELGRADE — Another game off the schedule, another lopsided win for the Butte Central Maroons.

The BC boys’ basketball team rolled its record to 13-0 Thursday night, running past Belgrade 67-37 in non-conference game at the Special Events Center.

Cade Holter scored 13 points to lead three Maroons in double figures in the victory, which completed the regular-season sweep of the Panthers. In all, nine Maroons scored points, and 14 Central players contributed in the win.

Aaron Richards came off the bench and continued his hot stretch with 12 points. Dylan Sestrich scored eight.

The Maroons also get eight points from Luke Heaphy, six from Trevor Neumann, five from Braden Harrington and Jared Simkins, four from Matt Simkins and three from Ryan Wahl.

Gator Yelenich, Thomas McGree, Egan Lester, Patrick Dolan and Bryan Holland also played for the Maroons, who have outscored their opponents by an average of 21.6 points through the first 13 games.

Thursday’s win marked BC’s fifth win by at least 30 points. Since their 57-56 win at Livingston on Jan. 5, The Maroons have outscored their last five opponents by a total score of 310-156.

Jake Klonsinski scored 11 points to lead the Panthers (2-11). Tate Bowler scored nine, while Dawson Logan tossed in eight, and Easton Page netted six.

Central jumps back into Southwestern A play Saturday with a road game against Hamilton.
