The Choteau High School varsity football team is heading into the last weekend of regular season play and will travel to Belt for a 7 p.m. game on Oct. 11.

The Bulldogs are 4-2 overall and still in third place in their Northern B/C divisional pool, behind Great Falls Central Catholic and Belt. This head-to-head game will determine which team earns second and which takes third in the pool, which has playoff ramifications.

Top-ranked teams in the Northern B/C Division will compete to see who gets into the playoffs and to determine seeding on Oct. 18 and 19. The first round of playoffs starts the weekend of Oct. 25-26.

In last week’s victory on the road against Cascade, Choteau accrued 321 yards of offense, all on the ground. Cascade was unable to stop Choteau’s run as the Bulldogs put up 44 points in the first half and allowed Cascade to score only 20 in the whole game.

Choteau’s leading rusher was Carter Morgan who had 151 yards on 15 carries and four touchdowns.

Senior quarterback Johnny Rappold kept the ball himself five times for 80 yards and two touchdowns. Gage Cummings had 16 carries for 63 yards, Kyler Crabtree had two carries for 14 yards, Tony Daley had two carries for seven yards, Jacob Brewster had five carries for five yards and Henry Bieler had one carry for one yard.

Rappold only attempted one pass, which was incomplete.
