Laurel's basketball girls held off a pesky Lewistown squad Friday night for a 47-31 home court win.

The Locomotives (8-3, 1-1) jumped out to a 10-4 lead after a slow-moving first quarter. But Fergus cut it to 31-27 after three thanks to aggressive play from Kylie Zimmer who turned a pair of steals into lay-ups.

But Laurel's girls owned the fourth quarter outscoring the Eagles 16-4. Lewistown falls to 2-9 and 2-3 in conference.

Lewistown's boys were hit with a technical foul before their game even tipped off, but instantly burned off an 11-2 run and went on to win 63-54.

Referees whistled the technical for a Lewistown dunk in pregame warm-ups. Colter Bales burried both free throws before the opening tip.

The Locomotives fall to 5-3 and 0-2 in conference. Lewistown's boys are 3-8 and 2-3 in league.
