BILLINGS – Nick Winfield scored two touchdowns and the South all-stars won the 2016 Class B football all-star game 14-3 Friday night at Daylis Stadium.
The South took a 2-0 lead after the first quarter on a safety as the defenses for each team started strong. The South also saw a 60-yard touchdown called back due to a holding penalty.
Winfield, the Jefferson High School standout, found the end zone with under two minutes to play in the first half, rumbling in for a one-yard touchdown and an 8-0 lead. The South missed the PAT to hold the eight-point advantage at the break.
The North team struggled to less than 75 yards of total offense in the first half but found their groove early in the third stanza. After their drive stalled, Tarren Lee netted a field goal to slice the lead to 8-3 after three quarters of play.
Winfield and the South put the game out of reach in the fourth quarter on a 4th and short play when he broke through the offensive line for a 53-yard touchdown to push the lead to 14-3. The South’s two-point conversion was no good after Fairfield’s Cade Heckman stopped the attempt.
Winfield was named the South offensive MVP. Townsend’s Jace Lewis earned the defensive nod.
Fairfield’s Joel Beck was named the MVP of the North.
Neither team would score again as the South earned their third straight victory. They now own a 15-13 advantage in the series.
