BOZEMAN — It'll be an all-Southern B girls championship.

Malea Egan poured in 20 points and Canzas HisBadHorse had a double-double with 17 points and 10 boards as the Colstrip girls routed Harlem 62-34 in the State B girls semifinals on Friday.

The win sets up a championship for the Class B crown between the Fillies, the top Southern B seed, and Jefferson, the third seed out of the division.

Against Harlem, Colstrip led 24-22 at the half before outscoring the Wildcats 18-10 in the third quarter and then limiting Harlem to just 2 points in the fourth quarter.

Harlem, which will play Bigfork in the consolation semifinals on Saturday, was led by 18 points and seven rebounds from Taya Trottier.


From a bottom seed to its first-ever championship.

Rachel Van Blaricom scored a game-high 19 points and Brynna Wolfe had 14 as the Jefferson girls surged past Malta in the State B semifinals on Friday at Brick Breeden Fieldhouse, sending the Panthers to the title game for the first time in program history.

Jefferson, which had to survive a double-digit overtime comeback in the Southern B divisional consolation final to lock up a No. 3 seed, rallied from an 11-8 first quarter deficit to take a 23-14 lead into halftime. The Panthers never let up from there, outscoring the M-Ettes by one point in the second half to hang on and sew up a historic win for the program.

Malta was led by a 13-point, nine-rebound performance from Allison Kunze and eight form Addy Anderson.

The M-Ettes will play in the consolation final on Saturday.
