Bison Topple Rustler Girls, Tuesday Prep Scores and Highlights

Posted: Updated:
GREAT FALLS -

Man, what a game Tuesday night at CMR. Even though the Great Falls High and CMR girls basketball teams entered the first cross-town game of the season with completely opposite records, it was a back and forth contest for almost all 32 minutes before the Bison eventually pulled away for the 56-45 win.

The Rustlers entered the game 1-6 on the season, but riding high after their first win on Saturday against Butte. They took the 6-1 Bison by storm early, running out to 7-1 and 22-15 leads. However, Great Falls High closed to within two at the half, thanks to a three point play by senior guard Taylor Kumm about a minute before the buzzer.

The Bison were able to take momentum in the third quarter, ending the stanza with a 33-31 lead, despite a valiant effort from Rustlers Junior Taylor Edwards who finished with a game high 22 points.

Great Falls High added to the lead in the 4th quarter, on the way to the 11 point win. The Bison are now 7-1 on the season and 2-0 in East Division play. CMR falls to 1-7 and 1-1.
