Spending the last 10 years in Utah has afforded me a few perks when it comes to sporting events. I have been to a few football games up at the University of Utah at their wonderful stadium, which was upgraded for the olympics. I was also in attendance quite frequently at the Delta Center (Now called Energy Solutions Arena) to watch either Stockton and Malone or Deron Williams and his crew battle the best and the worst in the NBA. (I do miss that building)
Moving back to Montana, I was a little worried about getting my competition fix. No worries there. This fall Fort Benton High made it to the playoffs for football, and I was at my first home game for the high school boys and girls basketball teams the other night.
The high school gym is no Delta Center but look at the attendance!! Well on the per capita rating we get more people into the gym than the Delta Center :)
A couple of Longhorn Fans!!! Hey I met that guy in the background!! Dang, whats his name?
D-Fence !!! D-Fence!!!! We easily put this team behind us and the next night we went into the big city of Great Falls and beat them too!! This is going to be an awesome Basketball Season. D-will eat your heart out!
In Fort Benton we are a class C school. In class C we play 8 man football. If you look closely you can see only 8 guys from each team on the field. Now I don't know all the rule changes between regular football and 8 man but I can tell you its all about the offense!
High scoring games as you'll see from the scoreboard the game we were at for the playoffs. Its a fast and fun brand of football to watch and I'm looking forward to next year and getting to a few more games. I made it to the homecoming game this year and the final playoff game.
