Last updated 2/27/2021 at 10:43pm
It took eight extra minutes. But the Fort Benton Longhorns defended their Northern C championship Saturday night in Great Falls. The Horns withstood a massive effort from the Belt Huskies in a thrilling 46-45 championship game win in double overtime. Hayden Diekhans made a clutch free throw to send the game to a second OT, setting up a wild finish which also sent both the Horns and Huskies to state for the second straight year. Chinook would end up finishing third with wins over Simms and Heart Butte Saturday, but the Beeters couldn't challenge because of a loss to Belt on Friday night.
