Billings Senior defeats Bozeman boys on Hawks’ senior night

After falling behind early, Bozeman couldn’t catch up as Billings Senior defeated the Hawks on their senior night 60-42 on Friday at Bozeman High.

“Tough that we couldn’t do what we wanted,” Hawks senior Brady Lang said. “The main thing is when we’ve had a rough game, the game after we bounce back, compete and play hard.”

The Hawks (10-4) trailed 14-7 after one quarter, 29-20 at halftime and 41-31 going into the fourth. Senior outscored the Hawks by eight in the final frame.

Senior’s Jacksen Burckley scored a game-high 18 points.

“They made it tough on us, so kudos to them,” Hawks senior Padraig Lang said. “But at the same time, we’re going to get back to practice on Monday, get after each other and right our wrongs so we’re playing our best basketball by next Thursday.”

Ty Huse led the Hawks with 12 points. Tucker Macbeth had nine points while Padraig Lang added eight.

“We obviously didn’t shoot as well as we wanted to,” Macbeth said. “We just needed to keep fighting and keep playing. I’m proud of our guys. We did that. We’ve just got to look to the next step ... and bounce back from there.”
