Hi-Line Boys Basketball Roundup

Bears, Beeters dominate 9C games

Chinook senior Zach Molyneaux brings the ball up the floor during a District 9C boys basketball game against Big Sandy last Friday night in Chinook.

There are always some cancelations or postponed games during the winter sports season. And while some games were made up this past week, at least one more local game was canceled over the weekend.

On Tuesday the Class B Harlem Wildcats attempted to hold onto the No.. 2 spot in the 2B ranks, but fell to the Malta Mustangs 66-39 in Malta. The Wildcats fell behind quick and early and failed to close the gap as Malta ran away with 38 second half points. Stanley Irvine led the Wildcats with 11-points and Tristine Gone added another 10.

Also on Tuesday, the 9C Chinook Sugarbeeters made up a game in Dodson.

The Beeters took down Dodson 74-35 in an impressive outing. Chinook used 31 points in the first eight minutes to get out in front, and the Beeters never look back. Lane Seymour has come on strong in recent weeks, and this time led the Beeters with 23. Zach Molyneaux has also came up with 18-points, while Ian McIntosh added 10 and Cody McCracken finished with seven. Ty Simenson also finished with six for Chinook.

Action resumed Thursday and the 10C Chester/J-I Hawks earned a tight win over Dutton-Brady on the road.

The Hawks were able to return home with the 48-42 victory, and every single one of Dell Harmon’s 13 and Justin May’s 12 points were crucial. But defense was also huge, almost putting a stop to Dutton-Brady’s offense in two out of the four quarters. They scored 20 in the second and 16 in the fourth, but the C/J-I defense limited the opposition to just four in the first quarter and two-points in the third quarter.

The Hawks scored 11 in each of the first three quarters, but kept the lead with 15 in the fourth. Tim Stokes also finished with six points for the Hawks, while Steven May and Klayton Lohr combined for another 10.

Friday, the Beeters were back on the court in Chinook where they grabbed another win. The Beeters defeated the 9C rival Big Sandy Pioneers 68-49.

Chinook didn’t get a 31-point first quarter this time around, but they did get 31 points in the first half to expand their halftime lead to 31-19. The Pioneers were not able to battle back with just 10-points in the second half, while the Beeters scored another 37, 35 of those points coming in the third quarter.

Molyneaux posted 22 to lead the Beeters, and Seymour added another 15, while Jacob MacLean finished with eight. The Pioneers were led by Jerry Hanson’s 11 points, while Geno Menard and Laurence Alderdice both finished with six.

In another 9C clash Friday, the No. 1 undefeated Box Elder Bears clobbered the Hays-Lodge Pole Thunderbirds 80-52 in Hays.

Box Elder was in control from start to finish and got great production all across the board. Brandon The Boy scored 12, Clayton Morsette Jr. scored 10, Chris LaMere scored 14, and Randall Gardipee led all scorers with 16 points. Hays-Lodge Pole was led by Sterling Whitecow’s 15, while Tyson Shambo also scored 13 for the Thunderbirds.

The season has been rough to this point for 9C North Star, but Friday on the road, the Knights did defeat Sunburst 51-50 in a very tight matchup.

And it took a strong fourth quarter for the Knights to return home with the one-point victory. After trailing 36-32 through three complete quarters of play, the Knights outscored Sunburst 19-14 in the final eight minutes, just enough for the win on the road.

Sam Ulmen led the Knights with 13-points. But Payton Peterson added 11 to the mix, while Matt Helmbrecht finished with nine and Jaxson Simonson and Gavin Spinler both finished with eight.

Turner wasn’t as lucky Friday as the 9C tornadoes were defeated 59-54 by Roy/Winifred at home.

The Tornadoes were holding their own for most of the game, but a poor third quarter was enough to keep Turner out of contention. Even with scoring 10 in the first, 16 in the second, and 12 in the fourth, a 16-6 third quarter by Roy/Winifred was enough to widen a gap the Tornadoes couldn’t overcome.

Lucas Reed had a nice outing that resulted in 15 points, and Bret Van Valkenburg wasn’t far behind with his 11. Dylan Welsh also finished with 10 points and two 3-pointers in the losing effort.

Chester/J-I played its second game of the weekend on Friday, but also lost a tight matchup. Power defeated the Hawks 59-58 in Power.

Justin May did go off for 20 points, but as the only Hawk to score in double digits, the Hawks needed one more spark late. Power overtook the Hawks with a 24-10 fourth quarter. The Hawks held a 48-35 lead after three quarters, but couldn’t hold on for the win.

Harmon finished with nine points and Casey Kinyon finished with eight for the Hawks.

Rocky Boy also played Friday, but was defeated by Malta 71-57. No scoring or statistics were submitted.

Saturday, the Chester/J-I Hawks would get another shot at a weekend win, playing their third game. This time the Hawks defeated North Star 46-31 in a nonleague matchup in Chester.

Once again the Knights’ offense struggled to put up points. Ten points in the fourth was their best eight-minute span, but it wasn’t enough to keep pace with the Hawks who scored 16 in the second and 13 in the third.

Harmon and Tim Stokes paced the Hawks with 11 points each. North Star was led by Simonson’s 14, followed by Ulmen with seven. The Hawks improved to 5-2 overall and the Knights sit at 3-3 after the weekend’s action.

Harlem also struggled in its second game of the weekend, as Glasgow defeated the Wildcats by 20 in Glasgow. The Scotties took down the Wildcats 67-47 on Saturday.

The Wildcats played a strong second half, scoring 17 in the third and 15 more in the fourth quarter. But even after the strong finish, it was too difficult to overtake the Scotties after a slow first half. Harlem scored just 15 total points in the first half, while the Scotties scored 26 in the first quarter and 22 in the second quarter.

Harlem got 12 points by Clay Doney, but didn’t get another double digit scorer. Gone finished with seven and both Irvine and Isaiah Doney finished with six-points. Harlem still has just one win on the season as they continue to struggle in the 2B ranks this season.

The Thunderbirds also dropped another game Saturday, this time a 60-48 loss to Roy/Winifred at home. The weekend dropped the Thunderbirds to 3-3 this season.

Hays-Lodge Pole trailed by just four heading into the final frame, but got outscored 12-4 in the fourth. White Cow led the Thunderbirds with 16 points, followed by Shambo and Doney each finishing with 10.

Chinook and Turner met in Turner for a 9C matchup, rounding up the weekend’s action, and it was Chinook coming away with the big win to keep themselves in second place behind Box Elder. The Beeters defeated the Tornadoes 80-41.

The Beeters were in control for four complete quarters and got another big game by Molyneaux with 22 points. MacLean and Seymour also finished with 14 points each, while McIntosh finished with 10. Turner was led by Lucas Reed’s 23.
