MISSOULA -- On Tuesday, the Missoula Big Sky Eagles were hosting the Helena Capital Bruins on Senior Night.

The Eagles were fresh off their first win of the season after taking down Kalispell Glacier on Saturday afternoon, but they wouldn't be able to make it two in a row, as Capital pulled away in the second half for a 51-39 Western AA boys basketball win.

In Tuesday's contest it was a struggle to score for both teams after the tipoff. In the first four minutes, Capital and Big Sky combined for six points.

After a Capital timeout, the Bruins started to click. Bridger Grovom directed the offense as the Bruins went on a 13-0 run to pull ahead 15-4.

However, the Eagles found some life at the beginning of the second quarter. The Eagles went on their own 12-2 run to make it a one-point game, 16-15.

In the second half, Capital regained its composure and went on to take down Big Sky 51-39.
