The Three Forks High School girl's basketball team will wrap up their regular season this week with two non-conference games.

The Lady Wolves (7-9, 3-7 5B) will be on the road Friday at Deer Lodge and will have a Saturday senior night matchup against fourth ranked Columbus. The senior basketball players honored before the game will be Kyle Olson, Paeton Ohs, and Teagan Page.

Head Coach Mike Sauvageau said he's been able to coach the seniors for three seasons and during this time they've won a state title and finished third at the state tournament.

"They've always done what I've asked of them, they are great role models, and class acts," he said.

Looking towards this week's game, Sauvageau said this will be two very tough opponents for Three Forks.

In action last week, the Lady Wolves fell on the road 48-47 Friday against Manhattan and dropped a 48-37 home contest Saturday against undefeated and top ranked Townsend.

Three Forks started strong Friday with several inside baskets by Breanna Bloch and Ohs and took a 12-9 lead at the end of the first quarter. The Lady Tigers would bounce back strong in the second quarter outscoring the Lady Wolves 19-7 to take a nine-point halftime lead.

Sauvageau said the team did a good job early with their inside game but started to miss some layups and then started relying on the outside shot.

Three Forks would outscore Manhattan by four in each of the final two quarters before falling by one.

Olson led the team with 26 points, Bloch added nine, Ohs had eight and Kendall Lynn finished with four.

Sauvageau was pleased with the intensity of his team Saturday against Townsend. He said they were able to get the ball inside for some good shots, but Townsend had some good players that were able to block the shots.

Olson led the team with 23 points and is the leading scorer in the 5B District averaging 20.5 points a game. Lynn added 10, and Ohs and McKenzie Feddes each had two points.
