The Cut Bank Wolves saw their season come to an end in a first round playoff loss to top-ranked Florence last Saturday. The Wolves held the high scoring Falcons scoreless in the first quarter but Florence put up 23 points in the second quarter on their way to the 37-0 victory.
Sophomore quarterback Tate Monroe connected on nine of 13 passes for 53 yards, but was intercepted three times in the loss.
Wyatt Berkram caught three passes for 29 yards while Austin Vanek also caught three balls for 21 yards. Vanek led the ground game with 25 yards on nine carries followed by Hayden Hedges with 17 yards on nine carries.
Dayne Barbie led the defense with five solo tackles, including three for loss. Tristan Sydenstricker picked off a Falcon pass while Bauer Seewald recorded the lone sack for the Wolves. Vanek and Sydenstricker each tallied three solo tackles for the Wolves in the season finale.
“The boys came out firing and were able to hold a very good offense to a scoreless first quarter,” said head coach Dylan Johnston.
“Offensively, we did some good things and Tate played a great game for us, extending plays and leading the boys,” added Johnston.
“I can’t say enough about the way our boys responded to adversity this year and really came together as a team to earn a post-season berth. I want to thank our seniors for everything this year and for truly leaving the program better than they found it, they will be missed,” he pointed out.
“We want to say thank you to the kids, the amazing parents and our wonderful community for always supporting the Cut Bank Wolves,” concluded Johnston.
