BOZEMAN — The Montana State football team held its annual charity softball game on Monday, but this time with a little help. Instead of playing against each other, the Bobcats recruited the Bozeman First Responders, also known as the “Lights and Sirens,” to compete on the softball diamond.
Montana State came out strong in the first inning, popping two home runs and an RBI to get up 3-0 on the Lights and Sirens. The first responders held on, though, using their veteran knowledge to cut the lead to one late in the fourth inning. Despite all the fun and games, the players loved the ability to give back to the community.
“I enjoy it, I’ll say that,” said senior tight end Curtis Amos. “The fact we get to give back to the community and all the money is donated to a different kind of charity each year, that’s the best part about it.”
In the end, Montana State defeated the Lights and Sirens 12-5, but it was the Montana Hope project that truly won, receiving a check for $1,550.
