BIG SKY – The Lone Peak High School Big Horns suffered a 55-14 loss in its season opener against Augusta on Saturday, Sept. 1.

“Augusta was a good, solid football team and very physical,” said Big Horns coach Tony Beardsley. “Our team did a lot of good things, but it shows we have a long way to go. I’m proud of our kids; they didn’t throw in the towel and showed a lot of effort against a playoff-caliber team.”

Beardsley was especially impressed by the efforts of seniors Tucker Shea and Haven Morris, as well as starting sophomore Tanner Burton.

The Big Horns play Two Eagle from Pablo, Mont. on Saturday Sept. 8 in Big Sky. They got their first ever win versus Two Eagle last year, but the team is vastly improved from last year.

“It should be one heck of a ballgame,” Beardsley said.
