Helena High, a semifinalist a year ago, failed to score on three trips inside the Glacier 5-yard line.

Glacier (5-6) had a 90-yard touchdown run by Preston Blain called back because of a penalty late in the second quarter, that would have tied it at 14-all at the half.

“Credit Helena, especially offensively, they controlled the ball and the clock,” Glacier coach Grady Bennett said. “I think we only ran 30 plays. They kept our offense off the field. Those two touchdowns (called back) hurt. That was hard to overcome.

“Proud of the kids, they fought hard to the very end,” Bennett added.
