Hamilton Teams Have Success in Divisional Second Day
The Hamilton Broncs are in the Western A Divisional Championship game Saturday evening. They advanced to the February 24th final by beating Dillon for the fourth time this year 56 to 44. The Broncs also have an automatic berth in the State Class A Boys basketball tournament at the MSU campus in Bozeman next weekend.
Meanwhile, the Lady Broncs knocked Libby out of the Divisional tournament Friday with a 44 to 33 win in loser-out action. The Libby girls kept the scoring close throughout the game, trailing by two or three points most of the contest; but the Lady Broncs broke it open in the final quarter and won the game 44-33. The Lady Broncs must win their Saturday morning game to advance to the Consolation game at 5 p.m.
KLYQ will carry all Hamilton games Saturday with Brett Heath doing the play-by-play. The Lady Broncs will play at 11 a.m. against the loser of the Frenchtown-Butte Central girls game Saturday evening and the Broncs take the floor at about 6:30 p.m. Saturday against the winner of the Butte Central-Frenchtown boys game.
Polson and Libby boys teams were eliminated from the tourney Friday and the girls from Ronan and Libby also ended their seasons.
