The swagger of a playmaker Bruce Bumgardner is, simply put, one of the best WR to suit up for the Lights in quite some time Aarron Thompson

Havre Daily News sports gferguson@havredailynews.com Football is full of excitement, and the game often finds talented players that light up their team, as well as the opposition. Some examples include quarterbacks that can sling a pass and lead offenses to highcaliber performances, running backs that break out into the open-field or truck down a defender, or the big offensive line that get to square off with another lineman so they can protect their quarterback. But, there’s a position that often catches the most attention, literall — the wide receiver. Being a wide receiver is something special to many and is a very versatile position to play, including Montana State University-Northern senior Bruce Bumgardner. Receivers can be used as kick/punt returners and tight ends are often just the taller-version of the receiver. Receivers are used in many different play-calls, too. One

can see them in a deep, shotgun, screen or slant-pass, to name a few. To be a receiver, one has to have multiple attributes. Many coaches will look for the guy with great hands, speed, jumping and rout-running knowledge. There is a lot to be said about receivers and being in the position gives one a great responsibility on the field. When it comes to the Lights, the team has had a great performer on the field for quite some time. Bumgardner has been one of the Lights’ best and is looking to go crazy in his last few games with Northern. Bumgardner has been involved with the game since he was in third grade. From there, it has been quite the journey. Bumgardner would go on to have a very nice high school career and then be recruited by the Lights. The 6-2, 185-pound receiver has been a big help to the Northern offense,

Havre Daily News/Colin Thompson Montana State University-Northern Bryce Bumgardner has been a huge asset to the Lights at wide receiver, including in 2018 when Bumgardner put up All-Conference type numbers, and, in turn, also helped the Lights become the dangerous passing team they are today. Bumgardner will play his final home game Saturday against Southern Oregon.

Yotes closing in on a historic first Frontier championship George Ferguson

Havre Daily News sports editor gferguson@havredailynews.com Two weeks and eight games is all that remains in the 2019 Frontier Conference’ regular season. And for the College of Idaho Yotes, they can put away their first Frontier title with one more big win. The Yotes will put their unbeaten record on the line Saturday when they host the Montana Western Bulldogs. If C of I beats the Bulldogs, they will clinch their first-ever Frontier championship. The game is also effectively an elimination game for Western. If the Bulldogs lose to the Yotes inside Simplot Stadium, then not only does Western not have a chance to at least share the Frontier title, but, they would essentially be out of playoff contention too. Speaking of the NAIA playoffs, Montana Tech is very much in that hunt. Sitting at 6-2 in the Frontier, the Orediggers have a very good chance of reaching the playoffs should they win out. That task starts Saturday with a rivalry game at much-improved Carroll College

in Helena. And, if Tech prevails, and beats Rocky Mountain College on Nov. 16, the Diggers’ would very much be a team at least on the playoff bubble at 8-2. Tech is also still mathematically alive to earn a share of the Frontier title. But, for that to happen, the Diggers’ would need Western to beat C of I this Saturday, and MSUNorthern to do the same to the Yotes Nov. 16. Carroll meanwhile, can’t win a Frontier title this season, but, not only can the Fighting Saints spoil Tech’s playoff hopes this Saturday, with two wins, they could finish as high as second in the final Frontier standings, and earn the proud program's first winning season in three years. To ensure a winning season, Carroll needs to beat Tech Saturday, and Eastern Oregon Nov. 16. Leading the Way With two games left in the Frontier season, it’s pertinent to take a look at some of the top leaders in the league individually. Offensively, Western’s Jon Jund has been the top quarterback in

the league all season, averaging 268 yards per game. Jund has thrown for 2,057 yards and also averages 300 yards of total offense per game. He’s also thrown 25 touchdowns against six interceptions. To put that in perspective, C of I’s DariusJames Peterson’s 16 touchdowns is second best. Speaking of the Yotes, they have some outstanding leaders, including running back Nick Calzaretta, who is tops in the Frontier in rushing with 124 yards per outing. He’s also scored eight TDs on the season. Carroll freshman Matthew Burgess is the only other back in the Frontier averaging more than 100 yards per game. Montana Tech’s Trevor Hoffman continues to lead wide receivers. Hoffman has had a breakout 2019, averaging more than seven receptions per game, while hauling in 40 passes for 820 yards this season. On the defensive side of the ball, Western’s Jason Ferris is running away with the tackle title for the second year in a row. Ferris averages 13 stops per game and has 96 total tackles. Northern junior Jaren Maki is next with 80. The Lights also have an interceptions leader in safety Hunter Riley. He’s tied for the lead with four picks this season. Rocky’s Mason Price leads the Frontier in sacks with

Havre Daily News/Colin Thompson Jett Robertson ad the other Montana State University-Northern seniors will play their final home game Saturday when the Lights host Southern Oregon. 6.5, while Tech’s Carter Myers and Western’s Joe Caceido each have 12.5 tackles for loss. Could it snow? The Frontier has probably had more games played in the snow this season already than in the last two seasons combined. And more is likely to happen down the stretch, including in Havre. The last time Southern Oregon came to Blue pony Stadium, the

Raiders had to play the Lights in a blinding snow storm. SOU is on its way to Blue Pony Stadium this week, and snow is predicted for Havre several days this week, including a possible 1-3 inches during Saturday’s game between the Lights and Raiders. Of course, the Lights already played in a blizzard this season, when they hosted Montana Tech in the now famous Sept. 28 snow game.

MSU-Northern Rewind

Fighting Saints win in Purcell's return to Havre Aarron Thompson

Havre Daily News sports gferguson@havredailynews.com The Montana State UniversityNorthern Light's season continued Saturday night. It has been a rough season for the Lights, as they have not found a win since their season opener at Arizona Christian. And in a Frontier Conference rematch against Carroll College Saturday night at Blue Pony Stadium, Northern fell to the Fighting Saints 27-6. The game was rough and rowdy throughout, but with the loss to Carroll, the Lights now have a 1-8 record on their 2019 season and have yet to get a conference win. MSU-N head coach Andrew Rolin knows where his team struggled against the Saints and is looking for a better result in Northern’s next game. “We make too many costly mistakes to win football games,” said Rolin. “I think when we’re good, we’re really good and I think everybody knows and can see that.” Northern and the Saints exchanged possessions to start the game, but after two failed drives by Northern, Carroll started on their own 20 with 5:42 left in the first

quarter. The Saints pushed the ball down the field and after a big pass play, along with some quick runs, Devan Bridgewater ran the ball into the endzone for the score. The nineplay, 80-yard drive took Carroll just 3:17 and the Saints led 6-0. The first quarter saw no more points on the board, but the Lights found a spark on the offense and drove down the field in the second quarter. Quarterback Tre’ Long and wide receiver Bryce Bumgardner connected for multiple key passes throughout the drive, while running back Jett Robertson assisted with Northern’s march down the field. In the end, Long found receiver Marvin Williams Jr. for six. The 13-play, 72-yard drive allowed the Lights to tie the game at 6-6. However, that was Northern’s only drive that resulted in points, but that push downfield is an example of how great the Lights can play when they’re at their most disciplined. Rolin knows his team can execute like that on every drive and game, but the maturity level needs to step up in his eyes, as well. “I think everybody can see that we can play with anybody in this conference (Frontier),” said Rolin.

“But sometimes, we’re playing like we’re freshmen and sophomores. We can’t play that way. We need to grow and grow up as a program.” The rest of the game was all Carroll College. The Saints scored two times in the second. Carroll’s first score of the quarter came from a quick two-play, 66 yard strike ending in a Bridgewater pass to receiver Shane Sipes to take the lead once more 13-6. The Saints second score before the first half ended was another quick possession. It took Carroll three plays and 28-yards to score again. Bridgewater ended the drive with another passing touchdown to receiver Joe Farris for a 20-6 lead. Only one score came out of the second half and it was from the Saints in the third. All it took was running back Matthew Burgess and a good PAT kick from Josh Kraft to give Carroll a comfy 27-6 lead. The Lights were not able to capitalize on the rest of the game after their only score. Multiple dropped passes and a stout Saints' defense smothered Northern and kept them from the endzone. Carroll would come out of the rematch with the victory and a 5-3 record.

Havre Daily News/Colin Thompson MSU-Northern freshman quarterback Tre Long throws a pass durng last Saturday night's game against Carroll College. In the end, Rolin knows his team can be better, they just have to work out the rough spots. “When we make mistakes when it matters too much, a disciplined team like Carroll is going to take advantage of that,” Rolin said. “I just know the things we need to clean up for ourselves. If we do that and trust the process we got going here, the score will eventually take care of itself and that’s what I believe. We got to hold our standard and our standards are high.” It was a quiet night for the Lights.

The offense managed 78 plays for 294 yards and only one score, while Carroll put up 57 plays for 295 yards and four touchdowns. On top of that, it took Carroll almost half (18:29) the time to score 27 points compared to Northern’s possession time of 34:51 to score once. The Lights’ defense struggled, too. Northern was not able to infiltrate the backfield and put up a sack or a tackle-for-loss, while the Saints terrorized the Light’s backfield with five sacks and sic tacklesfor-loss.

Bumgardner: Bryce Bumgardner has put together an impressive career for the Lights ■ From Page 2

especially last fall when he burst onto the scene. In that season, Bumgardner had 65 receptions for 871 yards, three touchdowns and his longest catch was 43 yards. His talent on the field definitely has made an impact on the offensive scheme for the Lights. This year, Bumgardner has 20 receptions for 183-yards and two touchdowns. It is clear that Bumgardner has had the stuff to be a great receiver, but he has a different skill that helps make him good at his job. “I think what makes me good is I don’t

feel like I can ever be truly beat, because I never give up,” said Bumgardner. “I keep on playing and I won’t let myself be beaten.” Not only does Bumgardner feel that that is what makes him great at his position, but for the entire wide-receiving core at Northern. The Lights have one of the most productive WR groups in the Frontier Conference, and Bumgardner has certainly been a leader in the room. “We all have the exact same attitude,” continued Bumgardner. “We don’t want to be beat.

love each other and love to see each other compete and succeed. We always have a lot of good things to say about each other.” Another aspect that stands out for Bumgardner is his hands. He is the type of receiver that if one gets the ball to him, he will catch it. Bumgardner’s will often work on catching in his practice, of course, and has become a reliable asset to the Lights offense because of it.

Bumgardner finds the position of receiver to be a fun one and has a favorite aspect about being a major offensive weapon on the field. “I like the adrenaline rush of the game,” said Bumgardner. “Getting hit or going up for a ball that’s a tough catch, I just like the

adrenaline rush of it all.” Catering to the adrenaline rush is a good thing in the receiver position. Receivers can be often put in compromising positions, especially when the go across the middle. So to have a likeness for the adrenaline rush can help ease the pain of being potentially blasted on a play. And the rush will be at another level Saturday for Bumgardner, as it will be his last home game of the season. Games like Saturday's senior day game can be very emotional and important to the entire team.

For Bumgardner, the nostalgia of his career at Northern will hit hard in that game. “I'm really sad,” said Bumgardner. “I’m going to miss the guys on the team. I mean, I do enjoy football, but one of the things you miss a lot is the people when you’re away. You just miss hanging out with your buddies and seeing them every day, doing things with them. I’ll miss the fans, playing in front of my friends and the entire experience, honestly. I’ll miss the process and just being with everybody.” Not only does Bumgardner have the skills for the game, but he has the heart,

too. The players that are missed the most are the ones that make the biggest impact on other’s lives on and off the field. Bumgardner is one of those players. He is the guy you can trust to make a big play but help a brother out outside of the game. Don't miss out on Bumgardner’s last home game in his Northern career because the standout wide receiver will surely be putting his best on the field, along with the other seniors, against Southern Oregon University Saturday at 1 p.m. in Blue Pony Stadium.

Bumgardner had a breakout campaign in 2018, and while his stats aren't quite as high this season, he's still widely considered one of the most explosive wide receivers in the Frontier Conference. Bumgardner will be honored for senior day when the Lights host the Southern Oregon Raiders Saturday at Blue Ponies Stadium, with kickoff set for 1 p.m.

Charlie Hall, the 16th head coach in the history of Southern Oregon University football, is in his third season with one Frontier Conference championship already under his belt. Hall needed only to make a short trek down the street after a highly successful run at Ashland High, where he had been the head coach since 2005. The 57-year-old went 94-44 with the Grizzlies while winning four conference titles, appearing in the state quarterfinals six times, the state semifinals twice and the championship game once.

MSU-Northern Rewind

Fighting Saints win in Purcell's return to Havre Aarron Thompson

Havre Daily News sports gferguson@havredailynews.com The Montana State UniversityNorthern Light's season continued Saturday night. It has been a rough season for the Lights, as they have not found a win since their season opener at Arizona Christian. And in a Frontier Conference rematch against Carroll College Saturday night at Blue Pony Stadium, Northern fell to the Fighting Saints 27-6. The game was rough and rowdy throughout, but with the loss to Carroll, the Lights now have a 1-8 record on their 2019 season and have yet to get a conference win. MSU-N head coach Andrew Rolin knows where his team struggled against the Saints and is looking for a better result in Northern’s next game. “We make too many costly mistakes to win football games,” said Rolin. “I think when we’re good, we’re really good and I think everybody knows and can see that.” Northern and the Saints exchanged possessions to start the game, but after two failed drives by Northern, Carroll started on their own 20 with 5:42 left in the first

quarter. The Saints pushed the ball down the field and after a big pass play, along with some quick runs, Devan Bridgewater ran the ball into the endzone for the score. The nineplay, 80-yard drive took Carroll just 3:17 and the Saints led 6-0. The first quarter saw no more points on the board, but the Lights found a spark on the offense and drove down the field in the second quarter. Quarterback Tre’ Long and wide receiver Bryce Bumgardner connected for multiple key passes throughout the drive, while running back Jett Robertson assisted with Northern’s march down the field. In the end, Long found receiver Marvin Williams Jr. for six. The 13-play, 72-yard drive allowed the Lights to tie the game at 6-6. However, that was Northern’s only drive that resulted in points, but that push downfield is an example of how great the Lights can play when they’re at their most disciplined. Rolin knows his team can execute like that on every drive and game, but the maturity level needs to step up in his eyes, as well. “I think everybody can see that we can play with anybody in this conference (Frontier),” said Rolin.

“But sometimes, we’re playing like we’re freshmen and sophomores. We can’t play that way. We need to grow and grow up as a program.” The rest of the game was all Carroll College. The Saints scored two times in the second. Carroll’s first score of the quarter came from a quick two-play, 66 yard strike ending in a Bridgewater pass to receiver Shane Sipes to take the lead once more 13-6. The Saints second score before the first half ended was another quick possession. It took Carroll three plays and 28-yards to score again. Bridgewater ended the drive with another passing touchdown to receiver Joe Farris for a 20-6 lead. Only one score came out of the second half and it was from the Saints in the third. All it took was running back Matthew Burgess and a good PAT kick from Josh Kraft to give Carroll a comfy 27-6 lead. The Lights were not able to capitalize on the rest of the game after their only score. Multiple dropped passes and a stout Saints' defense smothered Northern and kept them from the endzone. Carroll would come out of the rematch with the victory and a 5-3 record.

Havre Daily News/Colin Thompson MSU-Northern freshman quarterback Tre Long throws a pass durng last Saturday night's game against Carroll College. In the end, Rolin knows his team can be better, they just have to work out the rough spots. “When we make mistakes when it matters too much, a disciplined team like Carroll is going to take advantage of that,” Rolin said. “I just know the things we need to clean up for ourselves. If we do that and trust the process we got going here, the score will eventually take care of itself and that’s what I believe. We got to hold our standard and our standards are high.” It was a quiet night for the Lights.

The offense managed 78 plays for 294 yards and only one score, while Carroll put up 57 plays for 295 yards and four touchdowns. On top of that, it took Carroll almost half (18:29) the time to score 27 points compared to Northern’s possession time of 34:51 to score once. The Lights’ defense struggled, too. Northern was not able to infiltrate the backfield and put up a sack or a tackle-for-loss, while the Saints terrorized the Light’s backfield with five sacks and sic tacklesfor-loss.

The swagger of a playmaker Bruce Bumgardner is, simply put, one of the best WR to suit up for the Lights in quite some time Aarron Thompson

Havre Daily News sports gferguson@havredailynews.com Football is full of excitement, and the game often finds talented players that light up their team, as well as the opposition. Some examples include quarterbacks that can sling a pass and lead offenses to highcaliber performances, running backs that break out into the open-field or truck down a defender, or the big offensive line that get to square off with another lineman so they can protect their quarterback. But, there’s a position that often catches the most attention, literall — the wide receiver. Being a wide receiver is something special to many and is a very versatile position to play, including Montana State University-Northern senior Bruce Bumgardner. Receivers can be used as kick/punt returners and tight ends are often just the taller-version of the receiver. Receivers are used in many different play-calls, too. One

can see them in a deep, shotgun, screen or slant-pass, to name a few. To be a receiver, one has to have multiple attributes. Many coaches will look for the guy with great hands, speed, jumping and rout-running knowledge. There is a lot to be said about receivers and being in the position gives one a great responsibility on the field. When it comes to the Lights, the team has had a great performer on the field for quite some time. Bumgardner has been one of the Lights’ best and is looking to go crazy in his last few games with Northern. Bumgardner has been involved with the game since he was in third grade. From there, it has been quite the journey. Bumgardner would go on to have a very nice high school career and then be recruited by the Lights. The 6-2, 185-pound receiver has been a big help to the Northern offense,

Havre Daily News/Colin Thompson Montana State University-Northern Bryce Bumgardner has been a huge asset to the Lights at wide receiver, including in 2018 when Bumgardner put up All-Conference type numbers, and, in turn, also helped the Lights become the dangerous passing team they are today. Bumgardner will play his final home game Saturday against Southern Oregon.

Yotes closing in on a historic first Frontier championship George Ferguson

Havre Daily News sports editor gferguson@havredailynews.com Two weeks and eight games is all that remains in the 2019 Frontier Conference’ regular season. And for the College of Idaho Yotes, they can put away their first Frontier title with one more big win. The Yotes will put their unbeaten record on the line Saturday when they host the Montana Western Bulldogs. If C of I beats the Bulldogs, they will clinch their first-ever Frontier championship. The game is also effectively an elimination game for Western. If the Bulldogs lose to the Yotes inside Simplot Stadium, then not only does Western not have a chance to at least share the Frontier title, but, they would essentially be out of playoff contention too. Speaking of the NAIA playoffs, Montana Tech is very much in that hunt. Sitting at 6-2 in the Frontier, the Orediggers have a very good chance of reaching the playoffs should they win out. That task starts Saturday with a rivalry game at much-improved Carroll College

in Helena. And, if Tech prevails, and beats Rocky Mountain College on Nov. 16, the Diggers’ would very much be a team at least on the playoff bubble at 8-2. Tech is also still mathematically alive to earn a share of the Frontier title. But, for that to happen, the Diggers’ would need Western to beat C of I this Saturday, and MSUNorthern to do the same to the Yotes Nov. 16. Carroll meanwhile, can’t win a Frontier title this season, but, not only can the Fighting Saints spoil Tech’s playoff hopes this Saturday, with two wins, they could finish as high as second in the final Frontier standings, and earn the proud program's first winning season in three years. To ensure a winning season, Carroll needs to beat Tech Saturday, and Eastern Oregon Nov. 16. Leading the Way With two games left in the Frontier season, it’s pertinent to take a look at some of the top leaders in the league individually. Offensively, Western’s Jon Jund has been the top quarterback in

the league all season, averaging 268 yards per game. Jund has thrown for 2,057 yards and also averages 300 yards of total offense per game. He’s also thrown 25 touchdowns against six interceptions. To put that in perspective, C of I’s DariusJames Peterson’s 16 touchdowns is second best. Speaking of the Yotes, they have some outstanding leaders, including running back Nick Calzaretta, who is tops in the Frontier in rushing with 124 yards per outing. He’s also scored eight TDs on the season. Carroll freshman Matthew Burgess is the only other back in the Frontier averaging more than 100 yards per game. Montana Tech’s Trevor Hoffman continues to lead wide receivers. Hoffman has had a breakout 2019, averaging more than seven receptions per game, while hauling in 40 passes for 820 yards this season. On the defensive side of the ball, Western’s Jason Ferris is running away with the tackle title for the second year in a row. Ferris averages 13 stops per game and has 96 total tackles. Northern junior Jaren Maki is next with 80. The Lights also have an interceptions leader in safety Hunter Riley. He’s tied for the lead with four picks this season. Rocky’s Mason Price leads the Frontier in sacks with

Havre Daily News/Colin Thompson Jett Robertson ad the other Montana State University-Northern seniors will play their final home game Saturday when the Lights host Southern Oregon. 6.5, while Tech’s Carter Myers and Western’s Joe Caceido each have 12.5 tackles for loss. Could it snow? The Frontier has probably had more games played in the snow this season already than in the last two seasons combined. And more is likely to happen down the stretch, including in Havre. The last time Southern Oregon came to Blue pony Stadium, the

Raiders had to play the Lights in a blinding snow storm. SOU is on its way to Blue Pony Stadium this week, and snow is predicted for Havre several days this week, including a possible 1-3 inches during Saturday’s game between the Lights and Raiders. Of course, the Lights already played in a blizzard this season, when they hosted Montana Tech in the now famous Sept. 28 snow game.
