Local teams battle in final day of District 13C Tournament

FRENCHTOWN – All four local teams found their way into championship games Saturday at the District 13C Tournament in Frenchtown. The Lady Prospectors earned a spot in the West Divisional Thursday while the Trojan men have a play-in game Monday.


Drummond Boys

Darby 54, Drummond 46

The third time must have been the charm for Darby as they posted an eight-point win over Drummond in the tournament championship.

The Trojans started slowly, unable to score for the first 4:42 of the game. They were down 8-0 when Colt Parsons finally hit a mid-range jumper to get them on the board. Once they did, Drummond outscored Darby 10-3 over the final three minutes of the period.

The Trojans rallied to hold a one-point lead at several points in the second quarter and were down three with time expiring in the second when the Tigers’ Sawyer Townsend drained a long three-pointer to make it a five-point deficit at halftime, 27-22.

Darby’s 18-13 margin in the third put the Trojans behind and they would not be able to catch up before the final buzzer.

Parsons led the Trojans with 14 points, with Cooper Bradshaw and Chase Goldade each adding eight.

The loss left Drummond in second place and forced into a play-in game with Consolation Bracket champ Seeley Swan Monday. That game will tip off at 6 p.m. in Frenchtown.


Darby – 11/17/18/8 – 54

Drummond – 10/12/13/11 – 46

Darby – Townsend 7, Duggan 16, Robbins 1, Smith 10, Hundley 8, Reed 12

Granite Girls

Seeley 67, Granite 39

The Lady Prospectors got out of the gate slowly, falling behind early to Seeley Swan in the Girls championship game.

Playing without the services of senior Reece Pitcher, Granite was able to pace the Lady Blackhawks behind the scoring of Rachel Ward and Asha Comings who scored 16 and 11 points, respectively.

Ahead 48-31 after three quarters, Seeley used a final 19-8 surge in the fourth to secure the win and the No. 1 seed in the divisional.

Granite’s second place finish puts them into a first-round game at the Class C Western Divisional Thursday against Twin Bridges. The Lady Prospectors beat the Lady Falcons 38-32 in their regular season finale in Philipsburg February 12.

Drummond Girls

Drummond 54, Victor 28

The Lady Trojans finished the tournament they way they started it, with a win over Victor.

While Valley played with the Lady Trojans through eight minutes, Drummond gave no quarter in the second as they posted a 26-5 run for a 37-12 halftime lead.

Holly Hauptman closed out the season with a game-high 14 points, with Lexi Nelson and Bailey Parke each adding nine points on a trio of three-pointers.

The win gave Drummond the Consolation Championship and the right to challenge for a divisional spot if Granite had won. With the Lady Prospectors losing in the title tilt, the Lady Trojans closed their season.

Drummond 43, Valley Christian 28

The Lady Trojans took control early and coasted to a 15-point win to advance to the Consolation Bracket final.

Six different Drummond players scored in the first period as the locals took a 14-5 lead. They extended it to 24-10 by halftime and circulated the entire roster into the game.

Kimber Parsons led the Lady Trojans in scoring with eight.

Drummond – 14/10/8/11 – 43

Granite Boys

Seeley 64, Granite 57

The Prospectors fell in their season finale, losing to Seeley Swan in the Consolation Championship.

Granite was in perfect sync through the first two quarters, trailing 37-36 at halftime. But the third period proved to be their undoing as the Blackhawks out-paced them 14-6 to take a lead they would never relinquish.

Andrew Tallon led the Prospectors in scoring with 24 points. Hayden Mason, despite severely turning an ankle during the game, managed 19.


Seeley Swan – 18/19/14/13 – 64

Granite – 17/19/6/15 – 57

Granite 47, Victor 31

The Granite Boys played their most complete game of the season in beating Victor and earning the right to play in the Consolation Finale.

The Prospectors played solid defense and sported a balanced scoring attack in securing their second win of the weekend. Tallon led with 13 points, while Mason got 11 after turning an ankle that hampered his ability to drive. Cavan Babbitt added 10 and Avery Metesh nine.


Victor – 8/6/9/8 – 31

Granite – 16/8/14/9 – 47
