BOZEMAN, Montana - - Snowy conditions didn’t stop the Hawks from capturing a third championship in just six attempts.
Gabe Sulser put Billings up early with an eight yard touchdown reception off the pass from quarterback Nathan Dick. Bozeman immediately responded on the next possession with Payton O'Reilly's first of three touchdowns on the evening. The Hawks never lost the lead, and went on to win a fifth state championship.
The difference-makers in the game were Bozeman senior TE Payton O’Reilly (6 REC, 152 YDS, 3 TDs) and senior FS Bennett Hostetler (2 INT).
Billings Senior finished their runner-up season with an 11-2 record; their best in over a decade.
