  • Key fumble foils Jackets' hopes

    Before the start of Buford's 27-0 road loss to Great Falls on Friday night, Jackets' coach Mike Wells reminded his squad of three keys – play hard for 48 minutes, don't make silly mistakes and protect the football.

    The Yellow Jackets were right on two of three, but a fumble inside the BHS five-yard line gave Great Falls all the momentum it needed.
