Bulldogs are No. 2 seed

Butte High will be the No. 2 seed in the Class AA football playoffs, Butte High activities director Chuck Merrifield confirmed Saturday night.

The Bulldogs (8-2) will play Billings Skyview, which beat Billings West Friday, or Helena Capital. The Bulldogs opponent depends on the outcome of Saturday’s Helena High-Helena Capital battle.

The Bulldogs beat Capital at home and lost at Skyview during the regular season.

Kalispell Glacier (8-2) is the No. 1 seed. Obviously, it would take two wins by the Bulldogs and a loss by Glacier in the first or second round for Naranche Stadium to host the Class AA championship game.

Great Falls Russell (8-2) is the No. 3 seed, while Helena High (7-2) is No. 4, according to the Billings Gazette. The Gazette says the Capital-Helena game doesn’t matter for the top four seeds. That, though, is not official.

The top four teams host first-round games in the eight-team playoffs.
