When two big, talented teams collide, something’s gotta give.

That was true Thursday night when the unbeaten Charlo Lady Vikings traveled to face the Trotters and came away with a hard-fought 39-30 win in Plains.

The first quarter was a frenetic scramble of two good defenses against each other throughout the opening eight minutes. Plains senior Kylee Altmiller hit a two-pointer at the buzzer to pull the Trotters ahead by a 9-7 score at the end of one.

Charlo’s D tightened in the second quarter where they held the Trotters to four points while hitting for 13 to take a 22-11 lead at the half.

Plains came out of the locker room and went on a 7-0 run to start the second half and erase most of the Lady Viking lead. They would tie the game at 22 and again at 24 in a quarter that featured multiple lead changes and a pair of ties during the third quarter.

Trotters freshman Kimmy Curry tallied seven points in the third, as Plains held a 26-25 heading into the fourth quarter.

However, the fourth quarter was controlled by Charlo as the Lady Vikings outscored the home team 14-4 on their way to the win.

The Trotters traveled to Troy Saturday night and claimed a 51-20 win. The weekend split left Plains with a 9-3 mark on the year.

This Saturday the Trotters travel to Arlee Saturday, then return home Thursday Feb. 6 to host Hot Springs. A day later, Feb. 7, they travel to St. Regis to take on the Lady Tigers.
