    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.

    Facing a third and goal, a Great Falls' defender ripped the ball from Montra Wright's hands on what would have been a game-tying score in the second period.
