McGree, Bulldogs top Dillon girls

DILLON — Sammy McGree scored 18 points, and Butte High’s defense was relentless as the Bulldogs ran past Dillon 63-47 Tuesday night on Finney’s Court in the B.W. Lodge Gymnasium.

McGree scored eight points in the first half and then scored eight of Butte High’s first 10 points in the third quarter as the Bulldogs took command.

Butte High led 32-23 at halftime and opened the second half with an 8-0 run.

“They came to play and they played hard,” Butte High coach Liza Dennehy said. “They played hard right from the start.”

Kassidy Caprara came off the bench to hit two 3-pointers and score 12 points for the Bulldogs. Mariah Richardson added nine points, and Maria Michelotti tossed in eight before fouling out as Butte High improved to 6-9 on the season.

Butte High also got three points from Lexi Murphy, Ashten McCloskey, McKaul Ori and Bethany McLean, and two apiece from Andie Hogan and Ellie Hoffenbacker.

Jordan Peterson scored 14 points and Audrey Schurg tossed in 11 for the Beavers, who fell to 10-5. Cierra Lamey, who leads the Beavers in scoring with just under 10 points per game, was held to four points while playing through foul trouble.

The Beavers lost Alex Rouse to a knee injury early in the game. Butte High lost Murphy to an ankle injury in the fourth quarter. Dennehy, though, said it doesn’t appear to be serious.

The Bulldogs are back in action Thursday when they play host to Anaconda in the Butte Civic Center.
