Kuyra Siegel hit a basket and a 3-pointer in the final eight minutes for five of her nine points; Akilah Kubi scored four points in the frame and ended with 7.

MISSOULA - An eight-point first half doomed the Glacier Wolfpack Saturday afternoon, in a 47-34 loss at Missoula Sentinel in Western AA girls’ basketball action.

Ellie Keller scored 12 points to lead Glacier (1-1), which played a strong second half. Emma Anderson chipped in with nine points.

“It’s hard to win a game when you don’t get off the bus and score eight points in the first half,” Glacier coach Amanda Cram said. “However, I’m happy with how we battled back in the second half to come within eight.

“The Pack has a lot of work to do but we are not afraid of the challenge.”

Challis Westwater scored a game-high 16 for the Spartans (2-0).
