Football thumps Browning, face Bulldogs Friday
The Columbia Falls football team drubbed Browning on the road Friday, 69-12.
The hapless Indians had a tough time just getting a first down against the Wildcats’ starting defense, as the Cats went up 28-0 after the first quarter and 49-0 at the half.
The Cats did most of their damage on the ground. Quarterback Cody Schweikert threw nine passes for 78 yards.
But he rushed for 228 yards. Eight different Wildcats scored touchdowns in the win.
Jace Duval had an 81-yard kickoff return in the second half and Aydan McFadden scored on a blocked punt in the end zone. Kicker Kai Golan was perfect on point-after attempts, but one kick was blocked at the end of the game.
The Cats outgained Browning, 306-195.
Browning got on the board in the second half as the Cats played reserves.
They face Whitefish at home Friday night. Gametime is 7 p.m.
The Cats are now 5-1 on the year. A win against the Bulldogs would secure second place in the conference.
