Reid Johnson, #60, and Riky Puckett, #11, battle against the Absarokee Huskies on Sept. 10.

Football, Volleyball, Cross Country

Never mind the recent 35-8 loss against Sheridan – Twin Bridges bounced back on Sep. 10 with a 68-16 win on the road against Absarokee.

Twin Bridges Head Coach Brett Nordahl attributed the win to his team’s ability to get their run game going right off the bat, as well as excellent gang tackling from start to finish.


A defeat on the road

The Mustangs gave it their all, but ultimately the Park City Panthers proved their prowess, defeating Ennis on Sep. 3 with a score of 44-20. Mustang Head Coach Mike Speck said, despite the loss, the boys saw what they are capable of doing, and the coaching staff is excited for them to put it all together for 48 minutes straight.

A clawbiter in Sheridan

Sheridan’s first game of the varsity football season did not disappoint. The Panthers welcomed the Choteau Bulldogs to Sheridan,
