Lone Peak football likely headed to playoffs despite conference loss



Team likely to play winner of Fromberg-Roberts vs. Denton game

Taylor Anderson Assistant Editor

After finishing its regular season 3–4 overall (2–3 in Western 6-Man Conference), the Lone Peak Big Horns are likely headed to the playoffs.

The team awaits a game between West Yellowstone (1–3 conference) and Hot Springs (3–1). Montana six-man rules take into account points in the event of a tie. The Big Horns hold a head-to-head tiebreak over West.

If Hot Springs beats West Yellowstone, Lone Peak will play the winner of a late October game between Fromberg/Roberts (ranked No. 7 in Montana) and Denton (No. 2).

Lone Peak (No. 49) lost its last regular season game at home to the Lima Bears (No. 44), 58-12.

Three Bears receivers and running backs were able to rally against the Big Horns on offense while the defense delivered big hits throughout the game. Junior Tommy Tosic went down with a wrist injury early in the first quarter, followed soon by Tucker Shea, out with an ankle injury.

Freshman Justin McKillop was able to rally two touchdown passes to freshman receiver Trevor House – himself shaken up by crushing, open-field hits by the Bears’ big men.

The team will play its last game, an exhibition matchup next weekend before starting the playoffs.
