Game #12 (9-3) - Semifinal Playoff Friday, November 13th @ Bozeman Hawks-
The WolfPacks' dream of defending their 2014 state championship and appearing in 3 straight title games came to an end at the hands of their recent nemesis, the Bozeman Hawks who have beaten them 4 out of the past 5 times they've played. The Pack has only lost 5 games over the past 3 seasons and 4 of them have come at the hands of the Hawks who won a hard fought thriller 16-22 to end the Pack's season at 9-3. The WolfPack defense once again played brilliantly and the offense had enough to earn the lead and get it back each time they lost it until the final few seconds when an interception sealed their fate.

Game #11 (9-2) - Quarterfinal Playoff Saturday, November 7th @ Helena Bengals-
The WolfPack extended their state best win streak to 9 games with their first ever road playoff victory and their first ever program win over the Helena Bengals in 9 tries. The Pack trailed 9-13 at the half but dominated the second half behind Thomas Trefney's 205 yards on 26 carries and a defense that shut the Bengals out in the final two quarters and created 3 turnovers. The win puts the Pack into the semifinals for the 5th straight season, something only 2 other Class AA programs have done. The WolfPack offensive and defensive lines dominated the game in the 2nd half opening huge holes for Trefney and allowing Leif Ericksen time to find Scout Willcut for 5 catches, 105 yards and a touchdown.

Game #10 (8-2) - Friday, October 30th @ Big Sky Eagles-
The WolfPack extended their state best win streak to 8 games with a dominating win over the Big Sky Eagles to finish the regular season. The varsity starters were near perfect as the offense scored on 7 of 8 drives and the defense pitched a shutout as the Pack raced to a 49-0 lead late in the 3rd quarter. Thomas Trefney rushed for over 100 yards (14/149, 10.6 ypc, 3 td's) for the 9th time in 10 regular season games and finished as the states leading rusher with 1,384 yards and 20 touchdowns. Leif Ericksen enjoyed his finest night as a starting quarterback going an incredible 17 for 21 for 324 yards and 3 touchdowns to also finish as the states leading passer with 2,202 yards and 17 touchdowns. Caleb Jones was a highlight reel catching 9 balls for 194 yards and 2 touchdowns. The starting defense pitched a shutout with linebackers Patrick O'Connell and defensive backs Seth Anderson and Jake Willich leading the way.

Game #9 (7-2) - Friday, October 23rd vs Flathead Braves-
The WolfPack turned the ball over 4 times in the first half alone and found themselves down 13-7 to their crosstown rivals at halftime after a sloppy 24 minutes. The defense kept the Braves out of the end zone though and collected turnovers of their own to keep it close. After John Learn's interception return for a touchdown to begin the third quarter followed by Sam Barber's blocked punt and Seth Anderson's scoop and 41 yard return to the 6 yard line, the Pack settled in and worked their way to a 41-26 victory, their 7th straight this season and 7th straight over the Braves. Thomas Trefney went over the 100 yard mark rushing for the 8th time in 9 games and the defense and special teams units both turned in outstanding overall performances.

Game #8 (6-2) - Friday, October 15th @ Butte Bulldogs-
In what was the final game played on natural grass at historical Naranche Stadium, the WolfPack made it 6 straight wins and 5 in a row over the Butte Bulldogs with a 46-6 victory. The WolfPack special teams have had their issues this season but came up huge in the game, namely the Punt Return squad with a Seth Anderson blocked punt for a Kellen Bemis scoop and score touchdown, two other tackles of the Butte punter setting up scores for the offense and Caleb Jones making a highlight reel, school record, 80 yard punt return for a touchdown. Thomas Trefney went over the 100 yard mark rushing for the 7th game in 8 this season and the defense was solid in getting the win and setting the Pack up for a playoff run and top seed.

Game #7 (5-2) - Friday, October 9th @ CMR Rustlers-
The WolfPack defense turned in a terrific "bend but don't break" performance giving up 479 yards and lots of time of possession but pitching a shutout in the first half and holding the explosive Rustlers to only 15 total points for the game. The offense continued to grind out drives and come up with 28 points as Thomas Trefney went over the century mark for the sixth time in seven games this season with 122 on 26 carries. Leif Ericksen had an efficient night passing the ball and the Pack won their 5th game in a row making it 5 straight wins over the Rustlers and an incredible 8 straight wins at Memorial Stadium in the city of Great Falls. The win moves the Pack to 5-2 on the season and positions them for a top seed and playoff push.

Game #6 (4-2) - Friday, October 2nd vs Sentinel Spartans-
After racing out to an early 14-0 1st quarter lead, the WolfPack found themselves trailing 17-14 with under 2 minutes to go in the 1st half. The offense responded with a brilliant 2 minute drive to take a 21-17 lead into the half but the Spartans weren't done and scored 14 3rd quarter points to go back on top 31-21 with only a few minutes left in the 3rd quarter. Again the WolfPack came alive and scored the final 21 points of the game to win a battle, 42-31 on senior night. Thomas Trefney was again the workhorse carrying the ball a school record 35 times for 180 yards and 4 touchdowns including the game clinching 68 yard TD scamper with under 1 minute to play to ensure the Pack would move to 4-2 on the season. Leif Ericksen completed 21 of 44 passes for 332 yards and 1 touchdown and Scout Willcut (8/140) and Caleb Jones (6/101) both had big games catching the ball. Caleb Jones made big plays all night and ended the Spartans final threat with a huge interception to set up Trefney's clinching score.

Game #5 (3-2) - Friday, September 25th vs Hellgate Knights-
The WolfPack notched their 60th win as a program in only 9 seasons moving to 3-2 on the 2015 season as they overwhelmed the Knights scoring a school record 77 points. The WolfPack won their homecoming game for the 6th straight season and their first home game this season rolling up 384 total yards and 249 on the ground as Thomas Trefney scored 5 rushing touchdowns and sophomore Drew Turner scored 3. The starting offense was on the field for 6 drives, scoring a touchdown on each one before turning the night over to the backups.

Game #4 (2-2) - Friday, September 18th @ Great Falls Bison-
The WolfPack evened their record at 2-2 as the offense finally got untracked and school records fell. Leif Ericksen threw for 359 yards and a new school record 6 touchdowns, 3 to Scout Willcut, while Thomas Trefney set a new school record rushing for 218 yards on 30 carries. The offense piled up 600 yards of total offense in a wild and crazy game that saw the WolfPack run their streak of wins at Memorial Stadium in Great Falls to 7 in a row.

Game #3 (1-2) - Friday, September 11th @ Capital Bruins-
The WolfPack ran their winning streak against the Capital Bruins to 5 in a row and made it 2 in a row in Helena at Vigilante stadium with a tough, defensive 7-3 victory moving them to 1-2 on the young season and notching their first tick in the win column. The defense played lights out limiting a hot offense to only 3 points and 191 total yards. Thomas Trefney was a workhorse carrying the ball 31 times for 130 yards and the only WolfPack touchdown.

Game #2 (0-2) - Friday, September 4th vs Bozeman Hawks-
The WolfPack started 0-2 for the first time since their inaugural season back in 2007 as they fell to the powerful Bozeman Hawks 10-24 in a physical slugfest of a game. Leif Ericksen enjoyed his finest night as a WolfPack QB completing 18 of 28 passes for 256 yards and 1 touchdown completing 13 passes in a row at one point but the WolfPack again made way too many mistakes and missed too many tackles as they lost their second game in a row at home after running their win streak to 16 games in a row at Legends stadium over the past 3 seasons.

Game #1 (0-1) - Friday, August 28th vs Helena High Bengals-
The WolfPack lost their home opener for the first time since 2012 and with it a 16 game winning streak at Legends Stadium ended against the #1 ranked Helena High Bengals 17-23. The WolfPack made too many costly mistakes and penalties but battled to the end and were an onside kick recovery away from having a chance to win at the buzzer. The WolfPack dropped to 0-8 lifetime against the Bengals and Helena remains the only class AA team the Pack has not defeated.
