Leading 6-0 in the first quarter, Alberton-Superior quarterback Bryan Mask found Isaiah Kovalsky for a touchdown that made the lead 14-0, then on the Mountain Cats' next possession, pinned at their own 1-yard line, Trey Green scampered 79 yards to the opposite end zone to make it 20-0.
The Vikings found life early in the second quarter as Wrangler Gaustad launched a pass that Roper Edwards hauled in on an incredible reception to put Charlo on the board, but the night belonged to the co-op known as Clark Fork as the Mountain Cats put their foot on the gas the rest of the way to remain No. 1 in the West.
