Hamilton Broncs and Lady Broncs Head to District Tourney
It was the final regular season basketball game for the Hamilton Broncs and Lady Broncs at the Hamilton High School gym. In the first game, the Lady Broncs lost to Dillon 28 to 25. The Lady Broncs dominated in the first quarter 10 to 5, but Dillon started creeping back, trailing by two points 14 to 12 at the half, back by 7 at the start of the final quarter, but the Lady Broncs went cold in scoring and Dillon won by three points 28 to 25.
The boys took the floor next, after Senior Night recognition ceremonies. The Broncs led through the low-scoring first half and led at the break 19 to 17. In the third quarter, Dillon still trailed, but in the final minutes, the Beavers sneaked by and won the game 50 to 49. Hamilton still goes into the District tournament in first place in the Southwest Conference. That District Tournament starts Thursday February 14 in Butte. KLYQ will be carrying as many games as possible of the Broncs and Lady Broncs. The Divisionals are in Hamilton this year, starting February 21.
