Never mind the recent 35-8 loss against Sheridan – Twin Bridges bounced back on Sep. 10 with a 68-16 win on the road against Absarokee.

Twin Bridges Head Coach Brett Nordahl attributed the win to his team’s ability to get their run game going right off the bat, as well as excellent gang tackling from start to finish.
