CHINOOK The Chinook Sugarbeeters came back from a 14-9 Glasgow lead at the end of the first quarter to take one from the Scotties 46-40.
Chinook battled back in the second but still trailed by a point at half time, 19-18.
The third quarter was when the Beeters took the lead. Chinook outscored Glasgow 14-10 in the third to take the 32-29 lead.
It was all Chinook in the fourth as they held on to their lead and came out with the win in the clash of District 2B foes.
Amanda Schoen led the way for Chinook with 13 points.
Chinook head coach Bill Keller said this was a big win for his team. Keller said it has been playing well this season but has not been able to pull out a win in the big games. He said he is happy his team as able to finally win a big game.
The Beeters won the game on the defensive side of the ball, Keller said, as they allowed no Glasgow 3-pointers and held Scotties scoring power Tanya Bergren to just 12 points.
After a tough road schedule to start the season, Keller said he was happy to have just one game this weekend and give his players a chance to rest.
Keller said his team has some injuries with some ankle problems and hamstring pulls. He said the time off should allow those injuries to heal.
Next up for the Beeters is a trip to Poplar on Friday night and then to Fort Benton Saturday night before having to face Havre next Tuesday.
