Hawks win Class AA crown

BOZEMAN — One year later, the Hawks are kings.

Bozeman erupted for three touchdowns in the second quarter as the Hawks turned back Kalispell Glacier 24-14 Friday night to win the Class AA state football championship at Van Winkle Stadium.

Cordell Appel scored on a 38 yard run before Will Weyer hit Wyatt David and Will Dissly for touchdown passes for the Hawks, who won 13 straight after falling to Butte High in last year’s title game in Butte.

The TD pass to David went for 44 yards, while Dissly hauled in a 5-yard strike.

Brady McChesney hit Logan Jones for a 72-yard score to cut the lead to 21-7 at halftime.

Ben Goertzen extended the Bozeman lead to 24-7 with 5 minutes, 57 seconds left in the fourth quarter. The Wolfpack got on the board again less the 2 minutes later on a 1-yard Todd Ogden run, but it wasn’t enough for a comeback.

Appel ran for 142 yards in the win. Weyer completed 15 of 30 passes for 235 yards.

McChesney racked up 222 passing yards for the Wolfpack. Jones caught seven passes for 135 yards.

Glacier finished the season at 11-2.
