Cut Bank runningback Austin Vanek eludes a Jefferson defender during Friday night action at the Town Field.

The Cut Bank Wolves football team fell to 1-2 on the season following a home loss to Jefferson County (Boulder) last Friday. The Wolves were 0-3, but were awarded a victory when Missoula-Loyola was forced to forfeit their season opening win due to eligibility issues. 

Both defenses dominated the first half but the second half belonged to Boulder as they routed the Wolves 26-0. 

“Defensively, the boys played well and I’m proud of their effort,” said head coach Dylan Johnston. “We struggled to get out of our own way with penalties and little mistakes that hurt us in the end. Austin Vanek and Caleb Simpson played a great game making some big plays for us.”

Due to technical issues, game stats were not available.

“We go on the road this week to play a very good Eureka team and need to have a great week of practice,” added Johnston.

Kick-off in Eureka is slated for 7 p.m.
