As Red Lodge get suited up to face Roundup in their 4B District opener the team fell short of their recent victory roll to go down 58-46 to Columbus and should they defeat Roundup Feb. 14 their opponents will be the J-Hawks, who also handed them a 67-56 loss last week. 

Interesting times are ahead for the Rams and those in the tournament because Red Lodge didn’t give up these games lightly. 

The minutes of score lines separated them against Columbus with each quarter ending in either a 2-point or 3 point displacement; 10-14, 9-12, 14-17, 13-15.

Kaden Myrstol got 16 points passed the Columbus defense with Corby Mann on 12. Jay Jutmore made 8. 

Against Joliet, it was the Rams who showed the way, leading for three quarters of the way before inexplicably crumbling at the finish, losing the 4th quarter 24-9.  A shattering blow but one they will learn from having lead at that point by 47-43. 

Mann this time led in attack with 18 points, Myrstol getting 17 and Trey Allen on 8. 

For Joliet Ry Olson again obliterated more netting with 28 points with Reed Welch on 13 and Caleb Bailey on 12.
