GREAT FALLS, Mont. — It took Billings West a few possessions to get in rhythm Thursday night, but when they did Great Falls High had no answer – falling to the Bears 21-7.
On the second Bison drive of the game quarterback Kevin Boes was picked off by Chazz Maddock. A few plays later, Bryson Deming connected with his brother, Braydon, over the middle for a big gain down to the Bison 20 yard line. Bryson was then stopped short of the end zone on 4th and goal.
With 7:40 left in the second quarter, Bryson found Braydon in the back of the end zone to put the Bears up 7-0.
The Bears received the second half kick off and Si Ryan returned the kick 89 yards for a touchdown to give the Bears a 14-0 lead.
Caleb Nelson got in on the action, as he took the snap from the Wildcat formation into the end zone to make it 21-0 Bears.
Blake Thelen spelled Boes at quarterback late in the game would score a touchdown on a bootleg run in the fourth to put Great Falls High on the board.
