Fort Benton's Megan Clark drives the ball during a District 9C girls game last Thursday in Fort Benton. The undefeated Longhorns beat Chester-Joplin-Inverness.

With January turning colder, things are only getting hotter inside gyms around the Hi-Line. And that's because the girls high school basketball season is in high gear.

The Fort Benton girls have been in high gear all season, though, and that continued last Thursday as they crushed Chester-Joplin-Inverness 63-4. Fort Benton held the young Hawks without a single point in both the second and fourth quarters, while McKenzie Clark led four Longhorns in double figures with 14 points. Averie Mattson scored three of CJI's four points in the outing.

In District 9C action Friday night, Turner throttled Big Sandy 68-30, as the Tornadoes scored 42 points in the first half, and never looked back. Sarah Billmayer poured in 30 points for Turner, while Shyan Krass added 17 and Laci Maloney scored nine.

North Star also got its week started on the right foot Friday night with a dominant 71-21 win over Chinook. The Knights led 22-5 at the start of the game, and a 17-1 run in the third quarter put the game away for good. Jade Wendland paced four Knights in double figures with 19 points. Shayla Borlaug added 18 as well. Allison Powell scored eight for the Sugarbeeters.

Things didn't go well in a non-conference game for the much-improved Hays-Lodge Pole Thunderbirds Friday night. The T-Birds were crushed by Roy-Winifred 60-20 in Hays, as the Outlaws started the game on a 16-2 run. Mulleah Stiffarm led the T-Birds with eight points.

In another non-conference game, Class B Harlem had no trouble with 9C stalwart Box Elder Friday night. The Bears did lead 13-12 after one, but from there, Harlem was too much. Kailee Henry scored 18 points for the undefeated Wildcats, while Sarah Parisian had 13 for the Bears.

In a District 1B game Friday night, Rocky Boy lost a low-scoring affair at Conrad, 45-37. Kirsten LaMere paced the Morning Stars with 10 points.

As the action shifted to Saturday, there were some huge 9C games on the slate, including in Turner where North Star edged the Tornadoes 67-65 in a. thriller. Turner edged in front early in the fourth quarter, but the Knights rallied late and pulled off a big win to stay in second place. Kaytlyn Domire scored 18 points and Jade Wendland added 16, while Shyan Krass scored 18 points and Brooke Reed and Sarah Billmayer added 11 each for Turner.

HLP also scored a huge home win Saturday night, as the T-Birds knocked off the defending state champion Box Elder Bears 47-36. It was HLP's first win over Box Elder n more than a decade, as Mulleah Stiffarm and Ella Messerly each scored 14 points for the T-Birds.

In another 9C showdown Saturday, Fort Benton had no problem with struggling Chinook. The Longhorns cruised to a 56-10 win in Chinook, as they started the game on a 22-2 run. Maci Molinario scored 14 points for the Longhorns, while Allison Powell led the Sugarbeeters with 4 points.

Also Saturday night, CJI edged Big Sandy in an a exciting 9C game, as the Hawks won 41-39.

Harlem had no trouble returning to District 2B action Saturday night either. On the road, the Wildcats clobbered Poplar 74-25. Harlem scored 45 first-half points and got a big game from Tay Torttier as they stayed perfect no the season.
