BILLINGS – The Colstrip Colts are one of few 2-0 teams in Montana.
After Colstrip learned Wolf Point planned to forfeit the teams’ opener Friday, the Colts wanted to find another opponent that would give them game action before conference play started. Whitehall answered the call, as the teams agreed to meet in the middle, playing Saturday afternoon on the campus of Rocky Mountain College, and it was the Colts’ day.
Colstrip blanked the Trojans, 34-0 to pick up its second win in as many days.
The game turned early in the first quarter when Whitehall star quarterback Max Feight was tackled on the sideline and immediately grabbed for his right knee. Feight would stay down for several minutes before getting and up and walking off under his own power.
His replacement, Devin Woody, threw an interception on his first pass attempt, after the ball was tipped twice and finally gathered by Jackson Currier.
Colstrip opened the scoring on the first play of the second quarter as Nakoda Siegel lofted it for Kobee Bigback, who went over the defender to pull the ball away and trot into the end zone for a 46-yard touchdown.
Ty Bradley added a four-yard touchdown run on the Colts’ next drive to double the lead.
Feight returned for two series at quarterback but was limping badly, and after taking a hit on third down, went out again and never returned.
Bradley added a one-yard touchdown just before halftime to make it 20-0 at the break. Siegel and Nolan Nansel added scores in the second half.
Colstrip travels to Glasgow next Friday, while Whitehall hosts Missoula Loyola. Both games are scheduled for 7 p.m.
