It all will lead to the Championship of the Class A Montana teams November 20.
Last week, four teams had byes in the playoffs, due to their winning results in the regular season. Fans of Hamilton, Laurel, Polson and Lewistown were watching the scores to see who was advancing in the playoffs.
The results last weekend - Miles City (Custer County) squeaked by Columbia Falls 21 to 20, Billings Central overwhelmed Libby 54 to 12, Sidney won a close one against Dillon 17 to 14 and it was Frenchtown over Whitefish 24 to 13. So, the pairings for week two are Laurel hosting Frenchtown, Polson hosting Billings Central, Lewistown hosting Sidney and, of course, Hamilton hosting Miles City.
