Dogs look to tame Wolfpack in first conference tilt of the new season

Butte High Bulldogs (1-1, 0-0) VS Glacier Wolfpack (2-0, 0-0). The Butte High Bulldogs will kick off conference play this week at Historic Naranche Stadium Friday night at 7PM.

They will be taking on the Glacier Wolfpack who are 2-0 on the season. In both of the Wolfpacks 2 non-conference games they have only been scored on once and that was last week against Billings Senior, they have scored 93 points offensively, in large part because of Soph QB Jackson Presley who on the year has completed 35 of 47 attempts for 502 yards 6 touchdowns, 4 of which came last week against Senior and 0 interceptions.

The Bulldogs look to come in after facing one of the best in the Eastern AA in the Bozeman Hawks last week in their 39-15 loss. The game got away in the second half from Butte High, and they will look to turn that around this week. Senior linebacker Adien Cuchine leads the Dogs with 8.5 tackles per game followed closely by Nolan Casey right at 8.5 a game.

We asked coach Grey what he looked for most out of his team to bounce back from last week’s loss to Bozeman, “We challenged them to show some grit and play one play at a time.”
