HAMILTON – Two former Anaconda High School basketball players are now facing felony rape charges in connection with an incident happened two years ago in Hamilton.

Ravalli County court documents state Matthew Stephen Ryan and Kynan Kellegher, both 19 years old, face charges of sexual intercourse without consent.

Documents say the two men had sexual contact with a 14-year-old girl after a basketball tournament in Hamilton in February of 2017.

The two are expected to appear in Ravalli court later this month.
