BUTTE — Saturday afternoon's doubleheader between the Missoula Hellgate Knights and Butte High was sure to test both Bulldog squads against one of the best teams in Class AA basketball.

From start to finish in the boys game it was clear the Knights had the upper hand. Despite bursts of offensive production from Butte, Hellgate never came close to faltering its lead in this one. as the Knights roll for the 81-46 win.

The girls game was a much closer contest. At halftime Hellgate held a slim one-point lead, and after the third quarter it was the same story with the Knights up 36-35.

However, Hellgate took care of business in the fourth, built a lead and never looked back en route to a double-digit 59-47 win.
