Capital JV

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. The leading tacklers were Dylan Kresge, Cooper Ryan, and Dakota Dunlap.

Capital sophomores

The Capital sophomore football team fell to 8-1 on the season with a 40-26 loss on the road to Glacier.

The Bruins battled back from a 20-0 hole to tie the game up at 26-all in the second half. Glacier scored late on a passing play and returned an interception for a touchdown late in the fourth quarter for the final scoring play.

Offensively, the Bruins were led by receivers Michael Dobbins, Sean Mulcahy and Nick Wrigg, who all scored touchdowns. Defensively, Jacob Clarke, Trent Rouse and Donovan Heick added interceptions.

The Bruins close out their 2012 sophomore season at 3 p.m. Friday against Helena at Tuss Field.

Helena freshmen

The Helena High freshman football team continued its defensive dominance to defeat Capital 20-9 and finish an undefeated season at 8-0.

Nick VanHorssen scored two TDs; the second one was a 70-yarder to put the Bengals up early in the third quarter. The defense took over from there and shut the Bruins out for the remainder of the game.

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.

Civil Dialogue

We provide this community forum for readers to exchange ideas and opinions on the news of the day. Passionate views, pointed criticism and critical thinking are welcome. Name-calling, crude language and personal abuse are not welcome. Moderators will monitor comments with an eye toward maintaining a high level of civility in this forum. Our comment policy explains the rules of the road for registered commenters. If you receive an error after submitting a comment, please contact us.

If your comment was not approved, perhaps:

    1. You called someone an idiot, a racist, a dope, a moron, etc. Please, no name-calling or profanity (or veiled profanity -- #$%^&*).

    2. You rambled, failed to stay on topic or exhibited troll-like behavior intended to hijack the discussion at hand.

    3. YOU SHOUTED YOUR COMMENT IN ALL CAPS. This is hard to read and annoys readers.

    4. You have issues with a business. Have a bad meal? Feel you were overcharged at the store? New car is a lemon? Contact the business directly with your customer service concerns.

    5. You believe the newspaper's coverage is unfair. It would be better to write the editor at This is a forum for community discussion, not for media criticism. We'd rather address your concerns directly.

    6. You included an e-mail address or phone number, pretended to be someone you aren't or offered a comment that makes no sense.

    7. You accused someone of a crime or assigned guilt or punishment to someone suspected of a crime.

    8. Your comment is in really poor taste.

    9. Don't write a novel. If your comment is longer than the article you're commenting on, you might want to cut it down a bit. Lengthy comments will likely be removed.
