BILLINGS – Billings Senior’s girls are headed back to the State AA soccer tournament for the fourth straight year after a 2-1 playoff win over Great Falls CMR Thursday at Amend Park.

Senior opened the scoring early in the first half, as Blair Stapleton lofted it over the Rustlers’ goalkeeper for her 13th goal of the season. CMR answered late in the half as Hayley Cochran sent a free kick over Cassidy French’s hands and into the net to tie it, 1-1 at halftime.

Senior scored late in the second half to secure the win.

The Broncs join Billings Skyview and Bozeman at state from the East. Billings West hosts Butte Friday for the final spot.
