BOZEMAN - The West High Lady Bears thought they were on their way to another three-game sweep. Instead, Helena High never gave up, and sent the defending AA champs to the loser's bracket.
After West won the first two games, the Lady Bengals stormed back to take the next three games, 15-13 in the fifth, in their quarterfinal match to advance to tomorrow night's undefeated semifinal.
Helena's Monica Grimsrud led the match with an astouding 29 kills, including her final one to get the Bengals to match point, before Kyndal Williams won the game with a block. West was led by Cherina Walen with 18 kills.
Helena will play Glacier in tomorrow's undefeated semifinal, while West will play the winner of the Skyview - Sentinel match at 4:00 pm.
