Three Forks looks to bounce back as home stretch continues


January 29, 2020

The Three Forks High School girls basketball team will look to start a new win streak with home games this week Friday against Jefferson and a Saturday matchup with Whitehall.

After winning their first five games of the 2020 portion of their schedule, the Wolves dropped three games last week, 49-39 Tuesday at the Snake Pit in Anaconda, 55-31 Friday at home against undefeated Big Timber, and 53-26 Saturday home game against Columbus.

In the Friday home matchup with the undefeated Herders, Three Forks kept it a close game for three quarters and trailed by just five (32-27) going into the fourth quarter.

Head Coach Mike Sauvageau said his team played pretty good for three quarters, but Big Timber was able to bank in a three-pointer at the end of the third quarter and took control of the game. He added the team was unable to execute in the fourth quarter and this continued into the first half of their Saturday matchup against Columbus where they trailed 35-4 going into the break.

Sauvageau said you have to credit Columbus for their play in the first half.

"They really lit it up. That is probably as good a half as they could have played," he said.

Despite the setbacks last week, Sauvageau was pleased with the effort and attitude of his team. He said they were disappointed after the game Saturday but have had a good attitude this week.

Kendall Lynn led the team in scoring in Anaconda with 18 points.

Breanna Bloch led the team in scoring against Big Timber with 12. Peyton Page added six and Kendall Lynn finished with four. Kinzee Howey, Keaton Lynn, and Ashlyn Swenson each had two points.

Page and Lily Jones led the team in scoring against Columbus with five points apiece. Bloch and Kendall Lynn added four.

Three Forks (6-6, 3-3 5B) will remain at home this week with the two conference games against the Panthers and Trojans.

Sauvageau said they have a really good schedule this season and play some really good teams.
