BUTTE – Less than 24 hours after taking down Billings Skyview in commanding fashion, the Butte High Lady Bulldogs welcomed another Billings area team to the Civic Center. This time it was undefeated Billings West.
This game was back and forth all game long. Butte came out hot with Ally Cleverly and Haley Herron connecting on key shots to give the Lady Bulldogs an early lead. West is undefeated for a reason, so it fought back against everything Butte threw at it. Shea Dolan and TyLee Manuel kept the game in a back and forth momentum all night long.
Butte hit the clutch shot with three seconds in regulation to cap of one of the best games in Class AA girls basketball this season, handing Billings West its first loss of the season by a final of 48-46.
