Helena, Capital Football Trying to Stay Unbeaten in Week 2

Posted: Updated:
HELENA -

The Helena High Bengals had a pretty big opening win last week taking down defending champs Glacier in a tight game. Now they get to play another Kalispell school this week with Flathead coming to Vigilante Stadium. Last week the Braves defeated CMR 28-7 in Great Falls, thanks in part to a huge performance by Josh McCracken, who rushed for 124 yards. So if Helena wants to prevent being the second team upset by the Braves, it's going to start with controlling the run game.

"D-line is a big part of that," said Bengals senior outside linebacker Zach Tirado. "D-line is a huge part of that. We play team defense, so if everybody just does their job I think we've got a good shot. If everybody just does their job we'll be good."

"We have a lot of speed, and I think we're going to utilize that," said Bengals senior wide receiver Dylan Young. "Get on the perimeter, and hopefully win our one on one match ups, and score some touchdowns."

The Capital Bruins are fresh off their week one blow out of Billings West, and are headed to Hellgate this Friday against a Knights team that hasn't won a game in two years. But the Bruins know how quickly things can get away from you. Last year Capital beat Hellgate in week one, and then proceeded to lose their final nine games of the season. Last week's starter at quarterback, Wyatt Duthie, was benched after only six passes against Billings West, allowing back up Carter Pappas to come in and win the game. And no surprise, Pappas will get the start for week two.

"Our mentality is that we're not going to take anyone soft," said Pappas. "So we're just going to come into the game, play hard, execute, and if we do that we should be in good shape."

"We want to go down there and treat this as a business trip," said Bruins head coach Kyle Mihelish. "We don't want to go down there and falter, stumble all over ourselves. We want to go down there and have a good showing, and we want to continue with this momentum."
