Eureka Defends State Title, Dominates Shelby in Class B Championship

The Lions capped a perfect 11-0 season with an emphatic win

There was no need for last-second Hail Mary heroics.

No doubt about it, the Eureka Lions are state champions.

Eureka trounced Shelby 47-7 at home on Saturday to win its second consecutive Class B football state title.

The Lions capped a perfect 11-0 season with an emphatic win.

Eureka won its first state title last season with a dramatic win over Missoula Loyola in the final seconds. Saturday’s contest marked the first time the Lions hosted a state championship game since 1990.

Read next week’s Beacon for a longer breakdown of Eureka’s championship victory.

Correction: This story previously stated that Saturday’s game was the first time Eureka hosted the state title match in school history. The Lions hosted Cut Bank in 1990.
