Arlee, Charlo


Arlee Warriors defeated the Charlo Vikings last Friday in Charlo’s homecoming football game, 46-20. The Warriors started strong with two touchdowns in the first. Patrick Big Sam’s pass to Tyler Tanner completed for 9 yards. The two-point conversion pass was no good. Isaac Desjarlais then scored a touchdown for Arlee on 5-yard run. Teammate Patrick Big Sam passed to George Shick for another 2. Charlo’s Jared Doty scored the Viking’s first touchdown in the second quarter with teammate Jade Smith picking up the two point conversion. Smith then ran 27 yards for a touchdown and completed a conversion run for another 2. Arlee was quick to answer with a touchdown of their own and a 2-point PAT. After a third quarter safety, Arlee came back with a fury and dominated the last quarter, scoring three more touchdowns on two passes and one run and two PATs while Charlo scored one touchdown.
