HELENA – Tom Carter’s big night gave top-ranked Helena Capital more than enough of a boost on a rainy Friday night at Vigilante Stadium.

Carter scored three touchdowns and the Bruins remained undefeated with a 41-0 romp over visiting Butte.

Dylan Graham’s 10-yard touchdown run at the 8:07 mark of the opening quarter gave Capital a 7-0 lead. Butte fumbled away the ensuing kickoff, which the Bruins recovered. That led to a touchdown pass from Joey Michelotti to Hayden Opitz and Capital was quickly ahead 14-0.

Carter, the Bruins' speedster, made the game’s most explosive play, racing 95-yards to the end zone to give his team a 21-0 first-quarter lead. That came after Capital’s defense made a red zone stand to force a turnover on downs.

But Carter wasn’t done. He scored his second touchdown of the night, this time racing 44 yards, and the Bruins grabbed a 28-0 advantage in the second quarter. Carter caught a 20-yard TD pass in the third quarter as Capital extended its lead to 34-0.

At the end of the third quarter the Bruins were up 41-0 and well on their way to extending their unbeaten overall record to 6-0. Butte fell to 3-3.
