BILLINGS – A quick turnaround didn’t slow down the Billings Central basketball girls on Saturday afternoon.

Livingston kept it tight early trailing only 10-9 after the first quarter. The Rams took advantage of free throw shooting and a few transition baskets to command a 28-15 lead at halftime.

Central (1-1) increased it’s lead to 35-21 at the end of the third before closing it out at the Nelles Center.

The Rams will host Lewistown on Friday night at 7 p.m.
