MISSOULA — Tait Kuchenbrod’s goal in the third minute held up for the Sentinel Spartans in a foul-heavy boys’ contest.

“Real physical match,” noted Glacier coach Ryan Billiet. “They were very well organized. We did a nice job keeping pace after they scored so early.

“All in all the guys finished strong. It’s an opportunity to kind of bounce back on Thursday (Big Sky visits Glacier, with the girls at 3:30 p.m. the boys after). “I’m excited to see how the guys respond.”
