The Bruin junior varsity football team completed an undefeated season of 8-0 by defeating Helena High 21-14 on a snowy and wet Monday evening.
The defense was led by Jacob Mcvey with three tackles for loss and Brandon Bryant with two sacks and two hurries. The linebacking core was led by junior Jake Isbell, and had strong performances from Chaz McGurn and Jacob Clark. The secondary helped keep the Bengal passing attack in check because of the outstanding play of Daniel VanDyke, Tyler Dahl, Trent Rouse, Donovan Heick, Trevor Ball and Clayton Scholl.
The offense was led by the offensive line, despite the wet conditions. Bliss Collins ran for two touchdowns (5 and 70 yards) and Alex Delahunt carried the ball well for the Bruins. Quarter backCollin Volesky threw a TD to Brad Tiefenthaler (6 yards). Nick Wrigg added an extra point.

Tyler Simonson led the Bengals in rushing and added a score from the ground. On special teams, Nolan Davis blocked a punt and Brodie Long recovered the blocked punt for a touchdown. Tyler Simonson and Brodie Long were the leading tacklers.
In the second game, the HHS sophomores combined with the juniors to beat Butte 34-7. Cooper Lanier, Anthony Bodner and Tyler Simonson shared the ball carrying duties, and each had a rushing touchdown. Jackson Thennis threw for two touchdowns, one to Bodner and the other to Cameron Enright. The front six, Chris Palmer, Scott Gladstone, Alec Hollman, Cody MayKuth, Adam Jorgenson, and Clay Tamke controlled the line of scrimmage. On defense, Kyle Fadness had the lone interception.

Willem scored the final touchdown for the Bengals. The defense was led by a great team effort from all defensive lineman, linebackers and defensive backs. AJ Kanthack had two interceptions. An injured Brendan Kjorstad led the Bengal defense in tackles.
John Perros aced the 112-yard fifth hole at Green Meadow Country Club using a gap wedge on Oct. 9. Joe Epler, Vince Pons and Neil Peterson witnessed the shot.
