The Malta Mustangs came into town Friday and spoiled the home opener for the home boys – handily taking a 41-6 win.
Noah Harms gathered in the opening kick for the Mustangs, followed his blockers down the left side, found a big opening and raced 75 yards for a score. Six seconds into the contest Conrad trailed 6-0.
The Cowboys looked like they would answer right back on their opening drive. Luke Schlosser brought the kickoff out to the 25 yard line.

As Labor Day weekend approaches, volunteers from across the nation are gearing up for the sixth annual Park2Park bike ride across Montana to raise funds for CASA of Montana and the non-profit network of 15 local CASA programs, including Front Range CASA/GAL, Inc., which serves Pondera, Teton, Toole and Glacier counties.
“Last year, 45 riders raised almost $50,000 for CASA and that’s the goal again for this year’s ride,” Ellen Bush, Executive Director of CASA of Montana, said.
According to Bush, over 40 riders will participate in this year’s Park2Park, including riders from Washington, D.C., Idaho, Florida, New York, and Oregon, as well as numerous Montanans. This year’s ride will feature four riders from the golden triangle, one of which is a CASA himself.

It mirrors the movie, Field of Dreams, which starred Kevin Costner. Build a ball field in a corn patch in Iowa and “they will come.”
Almost surrounded by fields of grain, outside of the city, down a dusty road sits the best small bore, archery, and trap shooting range under the Big Sky, “They built it and they came.”
