Kalispell Boys Win Montana State Championship

The Black and Blue boys celebrate.

Kalispell's Black and Blue boys team won the Rugby Montana boys HS title last month with a 38-10 defeat of Missoula.

Black and Blue started quickly with a try from No. 8 Alec Thomas. Scrumhalf Fin Nadeau scored the second try and then Thomas and Nadeau linked up with flyhalf Nolan White for the third try, which was set up by the pack winning the scrum against the head.

That made it 21-5 and with White kicking all his conversions Black and Blue rolled. Thomas scored two more, both converted by White, and the flyhalf added a penalty goal for a personal total of 18.

But it wasn't just the try scoring that made it happen, said Head Coach Lance Heavirland. 

"The defense was fantastic," Heavirland told the local press. "This is probably the best tackling team I’ve ever coached.”

Meanwhile, the Kalispell girls team took second, losing to Bitterroot Koa Wahines 19-10 in the final.
