KEYS TO SUCCESS: "For us to be successful, we as a team have to take care of the moments that change the whole dynamics of a football game," Helena coach Scott Evans said. "Last week, we didn't handle the key moments and it ended up hurting us throughout the ball game. Against the Falcons, we have to win those game changing moments. The focus of our program is to know that those moments can happen at anytime so the old adage that every down counts is very true."

IMPORTANCE: "Besides seeking the victory, it will lock down a playoff spot for us which is one of our team goals each and every year," Evans said. "But the most significant part of this game is our Senior's last regular season home game. We get the chance to acknowledge the 24 senior players, the best football manager around, Cody Hoover, and our two incredible senior trainers Turea Venner and Paige Netschert. It's the chance to recognize and give thanks to all of these seniors and their families for the time they've dedicated for our Program."
