Turner and Fort Benton battled a season ago in the District 9C Championship, and many expect a rematch next month. Friday in Fort Benton the teams met for the first time with the Longhorns picking up an 18 point win.

The Tornadoes trailed 23-11 at intermission and were never able to close the gap in the second half as Fort Benton pulled away for a 47-29 win. Senior Shyan Krass paced the Turner offense with 13 points.

The defense set the tone early on Saturday night in Turner, with just four points on the board through three minutes of action. Turner junior Brooke Reed converted in the paint to end the drought for the Tornadoes. Freshman Hallie Neibauer answered right back on the other end to even the score at 4-4.

Both offenses had some success as the quarter wore on trading baskets along the way. Reed gave the Tornadoes a 12-10 lead but the defensive intensity once again picked up, holding both teams scoreless the final two minutes of the opening quarter.

The Tornadoes held a slim 12-10 advantage to begin frame number two, and like the first quarter, defense was the name of the game early on. Sophomore Dakota Krass finally broke the scoring drought two minutes into the second quarter and followed with a layup to give the Tornadoes a 16-10 advantage. Reed added her eighth point of the contest moments later leading to a Chinook timeout with Turner on top 18-10.

'Beeter junior Allison Powell scored right out of the timeout for Chinook. The 'Beeter run was short lived, senior Shyan Krass followed with a pair of buckets from the field to push the lead to ten, 22-12. Powell, freshman Britton Elliot and senior Lily Surber for a 6-0 run to cut into the Tornado advantage, 22-18.

Freshman Emma Billmayer hit a long range jumper to give the Tornadoes their biggest advantage of the contest at 27-20. Neibauer knocked in a three point bucket for the final points of an entertaining first half. At the intermission Turner held a 27-23 lead over the Sugarbeeters.

Jump balls, steals, fouls, and turnovers highlighted the action early on in the second half until Shyan Krass extended the Tornado lead to six, 29-23. The 'Beeter defense responded with a steal and layup moments later to cut the lead in half to 29-26.

Neibauer drove hard down through the key finishing at the rim for a 'Beeter bucket. Reed sandwiched another Neibauer bucket with a couple of her own as the pace began to pick up. Shyan Krass scored the final points of the third quarter off a long three point bucket sending the Tornadoes to the fourth quarter holding a 39-33 lead.

Reed's fourteenth point of the night gave Turner their biggest lead of the contest at the start of the fourth, 41-33. Neibauer responded with a pair of mid ranged jumpers to keep the 'Beeter close, 42-37. Another basket from Shyan gave the Tornadoes a 48-40 lead with 4:00 left in the contest leading to a timeout from Chinook. Freshman Hannah Richman scored her sixth points of the contest to give Turner a double digit lead at 50-40.

The finish was back and forth, Neibauer converted a old fashioned three point play off an offensive rebound, Krass and Billmayer added baskets for the Tornadoes to maintain the ten point advantage. Elliot knocked down a three point bucket, senior Jade Cecrle followed with a bucket of her own and the defense forced a five second violation leading to a Swanson bucket to cut the lead to five, 57-52. Coming out of a Tornado timeout, the Tornadoes added a pair of free throws from Dakota Krass to close out a hard fought 59-52 Tornado victory.

Shyan Kass paced the Tornado effort with 19 points, Reed added 15 and Dakota Krass 10 in the win. Neibauer continued to be brilliant, finishing with 20 points to lead the 'Beeters and Swanson added 10.

The 'Beeters traveled to Box Elder Tuesday night to take on the Bears in an important early season District 9C Contest. A three point bomb from the right corner from sophomore Bree Swanson trimmed the Bear lead to 18-17 early in the second stanza. Box Elder responded with a 7-0 run that led to a Chinook timeout with the Bears up 25-17. The 'Beeters came out the timeout ready to roll and finished the half strong, culminating with a buzzer beater from Swanson to make it 29-26 in favor of the Bears at the break.

The Bears had the hot hand coming out of the locker room, outscoring the Sugarbeeters 18-8 in the quarter to extend the Bear advantage to 47-34 heading into the fourth quarter.. In the end it was Box Elder securing the 57-49 win. Junior Allison Powell led all scorers with 16 points and freshman Hallie Neibauer contributed nine in the contest for the 'Beeters

Freshman Britt Elliot scored on back-to-back possessions to give the Sugarbeeters 14-6 early lead. Neibauer scored 12 first half points and Swanson nine to help the 'Beeters take 33-14 halftime lead.

Neibauer added eleven more in the second half as Chinook cruised to a lopsided 70-36 win over the Hawks to even their record at 3-3. Neibauer finished with a game high 23 points in the win. Swanson and Elliot each added 13 and senior Jade Cecrle chipped in eight.

The Hays/Lodge Pole Thunderbirds had a rough start to the week dropping a contest in Winifred Tuesday 52-24. Friday they were home to take on the North Star Knights and were handed a tough 47-34 loss.

Saturday the team got back on the winning track with a solid outing in Chester. Senior Ella Messerly connected from long range and the Thunderbirds scored first quarter points to take an eleven point lead 15-4 into the second quarter.

Sophomore Nashone Shambo connected from beyond the arc to lead the way for the Thunderbirds as they took a 29-13 halftime lead. Junior Jaedyn Chandler and freshman Alliya Pretty Paint each tallied six points in the third quarters to extend the Thunderbird advantage to 43-21 with eight minutes left.

Messerly added six more and the Thunderbirds got a three point bucket from eighth grader Shailee Shambo down the stretch to secure a comfortable 65-34 win and improve to 3-4 on the season. Chandler led the effort with 15, Messerly added 12 and senior Kassi Perez tossed in 10 for the Thunderbirds.
