MISSED ONE — Cowboy Shane Larson had this shot rejected by Wolf Point defender Pat Laney, #15, in first period action at the divisional tournament. Of course, it’s kind of hard for the ball to drop through the hoop when the defender closes the net with his hand. I may be wrong, but I thought this was goal tending. I-O Photo by Buck Traxler
The ride was good. The season for the home boys provided fans with excitement, a chance to yell and in the end, cross their fingers.
But in the end, they will not be joining the Cowgirls in Butte for the big dance.
In a close contest at the Northern B divisional in Cut Bank Conrad, the number three seed out of the IB faced off with the Wolf Point Wolves, the number two seed out of the 2B.
The Wolves got on the board first and on Conrad’s first possession, senior Austin Zomer hit a short jumper to tie the contest, early on, at 2-2. But it took 16 passes through, around and over the lanes before he took his shot.

It’s been a month now since four “gentlemen” allegedly from Shelby, and I use that with a great deal of sarcasm, stopped in at the new rest area just off of I-15.
The four men stormed into the rest area like a herd of elephants, cussing and swearing, with one ranting about this is how our tax dollars are spent.
This person just happens to be an employee in secondary education of the Shelby School District. It’s a fine example to be setting for the youth of Shelby, not to mention Conrad. Come on kiddies, we’ll do a little skiing, get buzzed, and on the way home do some vandalizing, oh what fun it is!
One of the young men allegedly involved, rifled a beer can into a restroom. Along with that, the perpetrators allegedly relieved themselves not in the appropriate place.
At their regular business meeting on Wednesday, Nancy Melby met with the commissioners to request financial assistance from the county to help fund CASA.
She noted that each county within the organization are being asked to help support CASA financially.
Front Range CASA is a non-profit organization based in Conrad, which serves children in northcentral Montana in the Ninth Judicial Court District that includes Pondera, Glacier and Toole counties. Their mission to is provide a trained advocate for every abused and neglected child in their region in order to help the court system and to represent the best interests of the child who ends up in the court due to no action of their own.
Start-up grants that CASA has used in the past are no longer available to them.
