FORT BENTON — Belt proved to be too much Friday night in a matchup between perennial North powers, and the Huskies made quick work of Fort Benton with a 42-8 road victory.

The Huskies drew first blood in the first quarter, as Bridger Vogl floated a touchdown pass to Zach Feldman. After the point-after conversion, it was 8-0 Belt. Not long after that it was 16-0 when Vogl took off and beat the defense, staying in bounds to reach the end zone.

One of the more exciting plays came on a Belt point-after conversion attempt, as Garrett Metrione took the ball on an end-around play and pitched it to Jeremy Nebel, who scored to give the Huskies a 24-0 advantage.

Fort Benton found the scoreboard not long after that, after Cade Ball intercepted a Vogl pass, which set up a Ball touchdown just before halftime. But it was all Huskies in the second half.

Belt improved to 3-0 and Fort Benton slipped to 2-1.
