Laurel girls and boys basketball both lose close games to Bulldogs

Outlook staff writer

The Laurel boys basketball team lost the fourth quarter and then lost the game in their three-point nail biter against Hardin last Thursday. After holding the Bulldogs to just nine points in the third quarter they gave up 20 in the last and only scored 14. They led going into the final quarter and the game was in their control, until it wasn’t.
Behind a very strong performance from Christian Jones, who had 24 and led all scorers, the boys couldn’t get much more from anyone else. The only other Locomotive who got to double-digits was Shay Osborne.
The Locomotives have had a strange season with the weather causing cancelations of a couple of games and then losing a close one like this. They are still holding a decent record and have a long season ahead to make up those opportunities.
Their cancelled games were both rescheduled for home, Feb. 4 against Columbus and Feb. 9 against Skyview.
They play next at Miles City on Jan. 7 after the winter break at 4 p.m.

Boys: Hardin def. Laurel 60-63
Laurel 10 18 18 14 — 60 
Hardin 14 20 9 20 — 63 
Laurel: Renner 4, Osborne 13, Jones 24, Schwab 4, Willis 6, Lawrence 7.
Hardin: McCormick 22, Real Bird 4, Lefthand 8, Walks Over Ice 2, Evans 7, Lefthand 22.

Right before the boys game the Lady Locomotives lost by three-points to the Hardin Bulldogs. The girls led big in the game and outscored Hardin in every quarter except the fourth, where both teams tied with 19.
Before the half the girls were up double digits and things seemed to be looking pretty good. It wasn’t until the third quarter until Laurel took a turn for the absolute worst. They were outscored 17-3 in the quarter and lost the game 56-53.
With a team as young as this year’s squad it can be difficult to keep the lead at times. The two seniors were decent with Rylee Clark and Dakota Boehler each reaching double digits with 12 apiece.
It was sophomore Aspen Cotter who had a coming out party of her own with 20 points.
The Lady Locomotives now hold the same record as the boys, at 1-2 and play next at Miles City on Jan. 7.
