RUNNING JUMPER — Grant Grubb (25) pumps home this nifty running jumper against the Fairfield Eagles on Friday night at home. It was his 18th birthday and he also hit a game clinching three pointer. Sounds like quite a day to me. I-O Photo by Adam Jerome

This past weekend the Conrad Cowboys matched up with two conference opponents in the Fairfield Eagles and the Choteau Bulldogs. Thanks to some clutch shooting at the end of both games the Cowboys rode away victorious.
On Friday night the Cowboys hosted the Fairfield Eagles and got the win 44-39. The game started out with the Cowboys taking a 14 to 12 lead heading into the second quarter. Fairfield began to make some shots in the second and took a 26-24 advantage into the locker room at the half.
Both teams came out in the third period ice cold from the field as they combined to score 11 points in the quarter.
COLLISION — On Dec. 30, at 1 p.m., a BNSF local that provides service between Great Falls and Valier derailed smashing into the Columbia Grain elevator. The train was picking up loaded grain cars when, due to ice, the wheels of the lead car derailed and ran into the elevator. There were no injuries or track damage. I-O Photo by Adam Jerome
