Spartans Call On Their King To Get Job Done Against Wildcats
Scobey Travels To Simms For 1st Round Game

Twenty-one days after being crowned Scobey Homecoming King, senior Colter Oie became the team’s go-to guy when trailing a fiesty Circle Wildcats team 30-28 with under four minutes to play in an East C Inter-Division Playoff
Held Thursday, October 14, on Scobey’s Plainsmen, Oie packed the pigskin on seven consecutive plays putting his team in position to tally the go-ahead score in an eventual 34-30 victory.
The impressive comefrom- behind win has the Spartans (6-1, 304-121, 43.4-17.2) traveling to play the Simms Tigers (7-1, 374185, 46.7-23.1) Saturday, October 30, in a first-round playoff game kicking off at
