JH teams take two of four with wins over Burling
The junior high basketball teams hit the hardwood for a pair of games each last week. After both teams lost to Timberlake on Tuesday, they bounced back at home with a pair of wins over Burlington on Friday night.
The Lady Whippets kicked off the action in Helena on Tuesday evening. Both Okeene and Timberlake struggled to hit shots early, but it was the Lady Tigers that took a 12-8 lead into halftime.
All but two of the Lady Whippets’ points came at the free-throw line in that opening half, and unfortunately, so did all six of their points in the final half. Okeene just could not manage to knock down shots in this one, as they fell to Timberlake, 22-14.
