After a week of 50- and 60-degree weather throughout Montana, Saturday’s storms struck with vengeance leading to a slew of spring sporting event cancellations across the state.

Such conditions can be disastrous for a team that likes to put the game in motion with passes deep down the field, but Broadview-Lavina dared the Bobcats to beat them through the air.
Despite the likelihood of slippery footballs and errant passes, quarterback Wyatt Zylawy and Superior did just that.
