Osweiler Continues Record Pace

By Beacon Staff

The record books aren’t safe with junior quarterback Brock Osweiler. Osweiler tacked on four more touchdowns against Butte in a 34-21 victory, giving him 13 for the season with only 2 interceptions. He was 20-26 for 213 yards for the 2-2 Braves. He also ran for a touchdown, accounting for all five Braves’ scores. At this pace he would finish the regular season with 32 touchdowns and 2,920 yards. The school records are 23 touchdowns and 3,043 yards. Last season, Osweiler had 22 touchdowns and 2,454 yards to earn first-team all-state.

Junior Larry Iverson III won again to remain undefeated on the season. Iverson shot a 71 in the first round and 72 in the second to win the Missoula Invitational. Glacier also won the team title. Consistently shooting in the low 70s and high 60s, Iverson has won every tournament he’s entered, including the non-school affiliated Labor Day tournament. He became the youngest winner in the Labor Day tournament’s 70-year history by topping 211 other golfers from around the Pacific Northwest and Canada.

Senior Hailey Farmin single-handily dished out more assists than Bigfork could muster as a team. Then she did the same thing the next day against Ronan. In the two victories, Farmin had 41 assists, while Bigfork and Ronan opponents had a combined 38 assists. Fellow senior Ashley Ferda added 24 kills over the two games to help give the Bulldogs – the defending three-time state champs – a 3-0 record in regular season play.

Whitefish’s girls soccer team, up 1-0 at halftime against Corvallis and without its head coach, who wasn’t present because of family reasons, proved why it’s the defending state champion. The Bulldogs scored five goals in the second half en route to a 6-0 victory. Five different girls scored for Whitefish, including two goals by Carly Lengstorf.

Soccer standout Kassi Hebert continued her offensive onslaught, scoring three goals in a 4-0 victory over Bigfork, giving her 12 goals through seven games. She also scored four in a game against Livingston earlier this season. Hebert has outscored a handful of Class A teams by herself. The Wildcats are 4-2-1 on the season.

The Wildcats football team ran for 259 yards in a 32-13 road victory over Stevensville on Sept. 14. Junior Josh Wilson led the running attack with 132 yards and two touchdowns. The ‘Cats improved to 2-1 on the season.

The Bigfork Vikings are beginning to put points on the board. After getting shut out the first week of the season against Hamilton, the Vikings scored their first touchdown of the year against Stevensville a week later. Then on Sept. 14 Bigfork posted a quick eight points against Browning after a 16-yard touchdown run by Brad Bell. Later in the game, Troy Bolivar returned a fumble for another score. A second quarter defensive meltdown, however, doomed the Vikings, who lost 42-14.
