The Lady Locomotives had a strange and very unbalanced game against the Red Devil’s last Friday in a 53-46 loss.
Aspen Cotter continued to show everyone watching that she is and will be a terrific player for years to come, having a great game in the loss and the only bright spot for her team, leading all scorers with 21 points.
“We got out-rebounded both nights and had trouble knocking down our shots,” said LHS coach Amber Griffith. Her girls lead 13-8 after the first quarter, but only put together a six-point second quarter and gave up 11.
They went into the half tied, but fell apart in the third quarter.
No other Loco, besides Cotter reached doubt-digits, with seniors Rylee Clark and Dakota Boehler each only having six-points a piece for the game.

Glendive def. Laurel 53-46
Glendive 8 11 20 14 — 53 
Laurel 13 6 10 17 — 46 
Glendive: Lovato 1, Kaufman 2, Robson 3, Wyse 11, Mintz 19, Pearcy 5, Torres 3, Nagle 6, Murphy 3. 
Laurel: Clark 6, Cotter 21, O’Toole 2, Boehler 6, Dawes 3, Chapman 4, Kildahl 4. 

The girls knew they had to win against Sidney on Saturday after their tough loss to Glendive the day before. The game didn’t start out too well, but this time they pulled it together in the end when Rylee Clark got hot at just the right time to push her team into a 43-39 victory.
The game was a must-win for the girls as they have a very tough schedule coming up. The victory helped the morale of the team, necessary for what lies ahead.
“We were happy to pick up a win over Sidney on Saturday,” said LHS coach Amber Griffith. “We didn’t play our best basketball this past weekend.”
Clark and Aspen Cotter each had 13 points on the night in helping their team get the win.
The game was all even, tied at 30-30 heading into the final period, not trailing like their last game, but also not ahead. It took the heroics of Clark’s fourth quarter scoring and the rest of the team to hold Sidney off and get a brief lead that went down to the wire as they escaped with a four-point victory.
They have a lot of work to do with Columbus and Billings Central next on the schedule, both tough opponents and both games away.
On Jan. 20 they play at Columbus, at (TBA), then play at Billings Central the very next day at 7:30 p.m.
