The Hawks continued their march towards a state championship by beating Missoula Sentinel 42-17 Friday night, Nov. 8.

The Hawks (10-0) were a little slow getting started, and the half time score was 14-3. Then in the third quarter, the Hawks blew the game open with three touchdowns. Once again their defense was superb. The Sentinels made it into the red zone six times, but came away with only 10 points.

The Hawks take on Billings Skyview in the semi finals on Nov. 15 for a chance to go to the state championship game for the third time in four years.

The Ennis Mustangs destroyed Simms 76-0 in the first round of the Class C 8 man tournament on Saturday, Nov. 9. The Mustangs (10-0) showed off all of their defensive and offensive weapons. The half time score was 60-0.

The Mustang defense intercepted, sacked and caused fumbles all afternoon. Each time the Simms Tigers drove into scoring position, they were intercepted or had some other miscue. Ennis next plays Charlo (9-2) on Saturday, Nov. 16. Kick off is at 1 p.m.
