FAIRFIELD — Dawson Allen scored four touchdowns as Fairfield used a big second quarter to defeat Bigfork 48-14 in the semifinal round of the Class B football playoffs on Saturday.

Randy Stultz actually gave the visiting Vikings a 6-0 lead with a 2-yard rushing touchdown in the first quarter, but Fairfield would dominate the second quarter. The Eagles took their first lead after a 3-yard scoring run from Libien Becker and then blew the game open in the final five minutes of the half.

Allen scored three touchdowns — a 45-yard pass from Ryder Meyer, a 14-yard run and a 4-yard pass from Meyer — in less than four minutes of game action. Meyer added his own 61-yard scoring run, and Fairfield took a 36-6 lead into halftime.

Becker added a 33-yard scoring run in the third and Allen scored his fourth touchdown, a 20-yard run, in the fourth. Stultz scored another Bigfork touchdown on a hook-and-lateral play in the third quarter.

Allen finished with three catches for 56 yards and two receiving touchdowns. He added 63 yards and two more scores on seven rushing attempts. Meyer had 124 yards and one touchdown on 16 carries, and Becker had 104 yards and two TDs on 16 carries.

Meyer was also 8-of-13 passing for 81 yards and two scores.

Bigfork was led by Stultz’s 115 yards and two touchdowns on 19 carries, but the Vikings lost three fumbles in the game.

Fairfield will next travel to Missoula Loyola for the Class B state championship. The Rams defeated Big Timber in Saturday’s other semifinal game.
