Boys high school basketball hit the Hi-Line in full swing this weekend and a lot of local teams faced some tough competition.

Big Sandy got the weekend off to a good start with a rousing win over Highwood Thursday night at the Big Sandy Tournament.

On Friday the Northern Native American Classic brought three local games to Havre, with teams like Hays Lodge-Pole, Rocky Boy, Box Elder and Harlem all competing.

The Class B Rocky Boy Stars took on the Class C Box Elder Bears and it was the Stars who came away with the narrow 70-63 win. The Stars went up 38-31 at the half. The Bears did outscore the Stars 23-20 in the third, but the stars stepped up in the fourth quarter to ensure the win.

Dusty Standing Rock led Rocky Boy with 17 points and Elijah Gopher pitched in 12. And for the Bears, Randell Gardipee led with 13 points while Skylar Parisian added 11 in the tight loss.

The Hays Lodge-Pole Thunderbirds also faced off on Friday, but suffered a 59-51 loss to at the hands of the Browning Indians junior varsity team.

The Thunderbirds trailed by just one point after the first quarter, but a nine point second quarter resulted in a deficit the Thunderbirds couldn't overcome, even with 30 points in the second half.

Trent Kirkaldie led the Thunderbrids with 16 points and the only HL-P player to finish in double digits. Colt Walker and Marvin Cole both had six points each.

The Class B Harlem Wildcats grabbed a win on Friday, when they dominated Valier 84-46.

Holding a 41-18 lead at the half, the Wildcats were in control the entire time. And the 43 second half points were just icing on the cake, espeacially with a player like Bud Buck able to post 21 points on Valier. Jordan Snow earned 13 points and Wallace Birdtail had 11 and Skyler Speakthunder added 10 in the big win.

Outside the Natice American Classic, Friday wasn't too pleasant for the Class C Chinook Sugarbeeters or North Star Knights. Chester/J-I Hawks did however grab a win.

Dutton Brady took down Chinook 43-26 in the Beeters Debut and showed just how much rebuilding Chinook may have to go through this season. The Beeters didn't score double digits in a single quarter, with a nine point fourth being their best quarter offensively. Dutton Brady put up 11 in the first, 15 in the second, four in the third and 13 in the final frame.

Grant Tilleman and Barry Murnion led the Beeters with eight points each. Brandon Riphenburg added six.

The Knights trailed by just seven after the first quarter, but suffered a 74-39 loss to Roy-Winifred on Friday. The Knights just couldn't keep up with the scoring as Roy-Winifred posted 14 in the second quarter and 44 in the second half.

Shelby Sizemore led the Knights with 12 points and Jordy Donoven added nine, a slow night by his usual production. Quinn Spinler found a way to pitch in seven in the Knights first game out of the gate.

The Chester/J-I Hawks were able to earn a win on Friday, when they defeated Fort Benton in a very close 35-32 final.

Both the Hawks battled for four quarters. The Longhorns led 6-5 after the first, while the contest was tied 19-19 at the half. The Hawks found themselves down after three quarters of play, rallied in the fourth, outscoring the Longhorns 12-6 for the three-point victory.

Jeff Wanken's 12 points led the Hawks and Dell Harmon's 9 were also key. Jordan Oraw, Dustin Roman and Lane Harmon all scored four points each in the win as well.

On Saturday, the Native American Classic brought three more games to area fans.

The Bears were able to rebound and come away with a 74-65 win over Valier in their second game off the weekend.

It was an offensive shootout for most of the matchup and the Bears offense proved to be hitting well enough for the win. Box Elder scored 18 points in both the first and fourth quarter and scored 19 in the both the second and third quarters as they were able to outdo the Panthers in the nine-point victory.

This time around Jesse Ramos got on track with 14 points while Jacob Burns knocked down 12 points. Randall Gardipee also had 11 and Standing Rock had 10 points in the win.

Rocky Boy improved to 2-0 on the season when they followed their first win over Box Elder with a 72-51 win over Heart Butte on Saturday.

The Stars had another solid outing and got good scoring numbers from all over. JR Daychild finished with 12 points and Gopher added 11. Garrett Anderson also had nine points and Justin Raining Bird finished with nine as well. Dusty Standing Rock finished with eight points and Jalin Belcourt finished with six.

Harlem and Hays Lodge-Pole also met on Saturday at the Classic in Havre, but it was the Wildcats who earned the dominating upperhand and the 84-51 win.

The Thunderbirds led 20-18 after the first frame, couldn't stay hot. The Wildcats outscored the Thunderbirds 66-31 in the remaining three quarters and even held the Thunderbirds to just five third quarter points.

Harlem was led by Speakthunder who erupted for 20 points and Buck who added 16. The Thunderbirds were led by the efforts of Jeff Sorrell with 12 points and Nolan Werk with 11.

And in another tough stretch for local teams, the weekends action was brought to an end with three more Hi-Line teams suffering a loss.

The Sugarbeeters couldn't get on track on Saturday ran into a tough Roy-Winifred team. Roy-Winifred defeated the Beeters 72-45.

The Beeters got off to a slow start. They scored just two points in the first quarter and just 15 in the first half and were never able to recover against a team that posted 47 in the second half alone.

Riphenburg led the efforts this time around with 14 points. Zach Molyneaux added 10 and Tilleman added eight to the mix. Molyneaux had three treys for the Beeters.

The C/J-I Hawks couldn't make it two straight wins to start the season as Augusta defeated the Hawks 52-48 in a nail biter.

The Hawks held the lead throughout the game including 26-24 at intermission. But late in the game, the Elk were able to outscore the Hawks 13-12 in the third and 15-10 in the fourth to sneak away with the narrow win.

The Hawks were led by Jeff Wanken with 20 points. Jordan Oraw also had 10 and Lane Harmon added eight as the team moved to 1-1 on the season.

North Star put up a much better fight on Saturday, but the Knights still suffered their second straight loss. This time it was Highwood who handed the Knights a 57-44 loss.

The Knights fell behind early, but tried to battle back. And though they were able to score 18 in the fourth quarter, their defense wasn't able to stop Highwood, who scored 19 key points in the fourth quarter to keep the Knights from gaining any ground.

Sizemore led the Knights again, this time with 17 points. And Jordy Donoven stepped up his game and scored 13 for the Knights, while Spinler came away with seven more.
