It's been a fantastic start to the 2020 portion of their season for the Three Forks High School girls basketball team.

After going 1-3 in December, the Wolves have now won five in a row with a 41-27 home win last Thursday over Butte Central, and a 38-34 win Saturday at Manhattan Christian.

Head Coach Mike Sauvageau praised the defensive play of his team and said this has allowed them to stay in games.

"And it has gotten a lot better since Christmas," he said.

In the Thursday win, Three Forks (6-3, 3-2 5B) outscored the visiting Maroons 30-20 in the second half on their way to the double-digit victory.

The Wolves were led in scoring by Breanna Bloch with 10, Peyton Page and Kendall Lynn had nine, Lily Jones added five, Jayden Woodland had four, Ashlyn Swenson finished with three and Erin Welter had one point.

Page led the team in scoring Saturday with 13 points and Lynn added nine.

Sauvageau said Page is one of the best shooters on the team and had a breakout performance last week.

He added the teams scoring total in their five-game win streak may be a bit deceptive because they are not pushing the ball up the floor and are running some time off the clock. Sauvageau would like to see his team shoot the ball at a better percentage.

It will be a busy week for Three Forks who battled Anaconda Tuesday (results were unavailable at press deadline), and host Big Timber Thursday and Columbus Friday.

Sauvageau said the upcoming scheduled will be difficult for his team with Big Timber, Columbus both being ranked in the top five in the state and a home game next week against Whitehall High School.
