Bridger boys and girls scuppered the Reed Point-Rapelje Renegades last week; the boys sinking them 56-49 and the girls 20-17.
A 2nd and 3rd quarter blitz by the boys saw the Scouts take a 42-30 lead in to the final 8 minutes, too much for RPR to catch up.
Kolton Popisil scored 22 points with Carson Roberts not far behind on 19. Kaleb Buessing added a vital 6 points.
The Lady Scouts had a narrow victory but still saw the RPR run-a-ground. Both teams struggled through the opening 3 quarters, either side taking advantage of missed opportunities. By the beginning of the last 8 minutes RPR led 13-10. A good defensive display by the Lady Scouts in last quarter limited the Renegades to 4 points while Bridger scored 10. Jessica Adkins led for Bridger with 7 points, Emily Adkins scored 6 and Kate Aisenbrey 5. Desiree Jones also got 2 valuable points.
In their follow-up games, Bridger boys fell to Plenty Coups 54-49 and the girls 49-32.
Pospisil added 15 points to his weekend tally of 37 and Roberts took 17 to give him 36 over all.
No stats for the girls were available.
