BIG SKY, ST. REGIS – The Lone Peak Big Horns won back-to-back games in commanding fashion Sept. 8 and 14. Their 94-0 victory over Two Eagle and 49-0 win against St. Regis, demonstrated the Big Horns have it working on both sides of the field at this point in the season.
“I don’t really know how many teams have gotten two shutouts in a row in six-man football, but it’s really hard to do,” said LPHS coach Tony Beardsley.
“The biggest thing is we finally came together as an entire football team,” he said about the big win over a struggling Two Eagle team Sept. 8. “We gained a lot of confidence and came out playing hard from minute one.”
Brothers Tucker and Cooper Shea combined for nine touchdowns in that contest, and Tucker rushed for 216 yards.
The following week they traveled to St. Regis, and the Shea brothers continued their dominance. Tucker had four touchdowns, Cooper rushed for one, and the Big Horns notched a big win on the road.
The Big Horns play Alberton at home Sept. 22; that school beat Big Sky 65-0 last year. The team travels to play its rivals West Yellowstone on Sept. 29.
“We have to step it up a notch,” Beardsley said, “because we’re playing some of the better teams in the conference coming up.” T.A.
