It was a bumper week for basketball as the Plains Horsemen and Trotters hit the road to Arlee then back in their home corral to head up against the Hawks.
At the start of the week Plains was sitting second for both the boys and girls varsity teams, both behind Arlee.
However, after this past week’s games, there could be some change ups for the conference standings.
Unfortunately for the Horsemen they went down once again to the Arlee Warriors, this time in the Warriors’ den.
Final score seeing Arlee 80 to Plains 39.
Horsemen baskets saw: Tanner Ovitt 2, Kyle Weeks 6, Theydon Brouillette 6, Matt McCracken 4, Sinjin Ladeaux 5, Jay Vonheeder 12 and Derrick Curry with 4.
The Trotters did slightly better as the final score saw Plains 45 to Arlee 39. The Trotters definitely sought redemption from the last match up in Plains where they fell to the Lady Warriors.
Trotter baskets saw: Kassidy Kinzie 9, Lindsay Laws 14, Haley Josephson 4, Analisa Loberg 2, Natalee Deschamps 2, Rachel Huenik 4, Kara Altmiller 4 and Jessica Thompson with 6.
The Trotters came away with a loss on their home court this past Saturday night. Though they were able to catch up thanks to Lindsay Laws three-point shooting along with Hayley Josephson’s quick feet, they weren’t enough before the final buzzer ran out.
The Horsemen also headed up against a strong Seeley-Swan Hawks side. From the tip off the game struck into full intensity.
Both sides showed to have a push for quick baskets yet the home side was able to take a quick lead. From there onward it was a close match to see who would continue to sink baskets.
The Hawks took opportunities to gain from a couple of three point shots. Also looking to take advantage of any openings the home side gave up to allow an easy approach to the basket.
However, it was the Plains Horsemen who took the win 58-49 by the final buzzer.
Horsemen baskets saw: Tanner Ovitt 23, Derick Curry 18, Jay VonHeeder 9, Kyle Weeks 4, Wyatt Weyers 2, Matt McCracken 2.
