Missoula Hellgate's girls basketball team pulled away from Billings West in the fourth quarter for a 46-36 win on Saturday afternoon inside the Golden Dome in Billings.

Hellgate led 20-17 at halftime, but West wouldn't let the Knights extend their lead. A Willa Albrecht corner 3-pointer with about five minutes to play capped a 6-0 spurt by West and tied the game at 32.

The Golden Bears went ice cold from that point on, though, as Hellgate was able to get out in transition for easy baskets to extend its lead.

Missoula Hellgate is in action next Friday at Belgrade, while Billings West hosts Helena Capital the same night.
