Four and O

The Ennis Mustangs have gotten off to a good start this season with an upperclassmen dominant roster with four wins and zero losses thus far against Seeley Swan, Lone Peak, Sheridan, and Simms. The Simms game was a wild one with an electric atmosphere. The first half ended with the Mustangs over the Tigers 23-20.

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.


A defeat on the road

The Mustangs gave it their all, but ultimately the Park City Panthers proved their prowess, defeating Ennis on Sep. 3 with a score of 44-20. Mustang Head Coach Mike Speck said, despite the loss, the boys saw what they are capable of doing, and the coaching staff is excited for them to put it all together for 48 minutes straight.

A clawbiter in Sheridan

Sheridan’s first game of the varsity football season did not disappoint. The Panthers welcomed the Choteau Bulldogs to Sheridan,

eking out a win in overtime, 27-25. Senior Kaiden Batzler is seen here using all of his 6’3” frame to bust through his competition and run the ball down the field.

Back to school sports

Ah, back to school season. Backpacks are packed, thinking caps are on, and students, parents and teachers are readying for another year of learning. There’s a return to classes, to friendships, and to the competitive action of fall athletics.
