Bridger’s defeat of Custer/Hysham 53-27 saw them finish the season with a 7-1 record and comfortably enter into the 6-Man Tournament where they will face Valley Christian at home, Oct. 27 at 7 p.m.
The Scouts had wrapped up their last season game by half time, going in 47-6 to the good, and made the Rebels chase the game to the final buzzer.
Nick Althoff had seven carries for 98 yards and three touchdown runs and 13 tackles. Colter Zentner had two rushes for 96 yards one going for six points and caught an interception while Colby Zentner passed for three touchdowns and had nine tackles. Jake Kallevig caught three passes for 93 yards and two touchdowns.
“This win capped a good year for us in the southern conference with the challenge of playoffs ahead next,” said Coach Mike Mathis. “We have a savvy crew of players whose games are evolving and expanding due to a couple of serious injuries incurred during the regular season. We lost Kaleb Buessing and Eric White both are very tough and gritty players and we’ll miss the physicality they both brought to each game. We’ll host Valley Christian on Friday, October 27th and look forward to bring our style of play into this weeks playoff game.”
