Unless Platter has any objections, here is the list of championship game rematches:
1983 - Glasgow 21, Miles City 17. The Cowboys held the Scotties to 43 yards of total offense in the regular season and won, 23-8.
Did you know that, Chafing Dish?
1984 - Sidney 21, Miles City 12. The Eagles defeated the Cowboys, 3-2, in the regular season. Until Miles City's 3-0 win over Glendive in 2004, this was the lowest-scoring game CCDHS had played in.
But you were already aware of that, weren't you, Salver?
1985 - Miles City 20, Glendive 6. The Cowboys defeated the Red Devils, 22-21, in the regular season. CCDHS and DCHS have had more games decided by a single point (5, including two state championship games) than any other Eastern 'A' pairing.
I'm sure Baking Rack was in the middle of typing that very same thing.
1988 - Sidney 37, Glendive 9. The Eagles defeated the Red Devils, 27-15, in the regular season. As Trifecta is well aware, Glendive defeated Miles City, 13-7, that season. The Red Devils' only other loss that year was by a 34-6 score to Dickinson in their season opener.
1990 - Sidney 20, Colstrip 14. The Eagles avenged their only loss of the season. The score of the regular season meeting? Ask Three-Pointer. He'll be happy to tell you it was also 20-14.
1993 - Sidney 28, Miles City 15. The Eagles won the regular season meeting, 25-8. The Cowboys actually led in the chipper, making it the first time all season long that Sidney had trailed in a game. WayDownTown...BANG! knows this, of course.
1995 - Miles City 13, Glendive 12. The Cowboys won the first meeting, 17-7. The Red Devils finished with an 8-3 record, the same mark they had in their previous two championship losses. This was on the tip of From Beyond the Arc's tongue.
1996 - Miles City 14, Sidney 7. The Eagles won the first game, 26-22, snapping the Cowboys' 23-game winning streak. Miles City's win in the championship game was Sidney's first home playoff loss under Mike Gear and marked the third consecutive game the Cowboys won on the road against a previously-undefeated opponent.
(Dammit, I'm running out of nicknames for Trey. Sue me.)
2000 - Dillon 33, Hamilton 6. The Beavers defeated the Broncs, 23-0, in the regular season. This was Dillon's first championship and the fourth consecutive title game in which Hamilton played. Tyler Thomas completed five of eight passes for 195 yards and no interceptions. All of his completions went for touchdowns.
2002 - Laurel 21, Havre 19. The Locomotives got revenge for their final defeat of the season, a 41-25 loss to the Blue Ponies in the fifth game of the year. At that point, Laurel was 2-3. Both Havre and Laurel defeated previously-unbeaten teams (Whitefish and Miles City, respectively) in the semifinals.
2004 - Havre 34, Billings Central 21. The Blue Ponies defeated the Rams, 20-19, in the second game of the regular season. The wins were easily the closet contests in which Havre played that year. The Blue Ponies scored 533 points in 12 games.
2005 - Dillon 21, Frenchtown 20. The Beavers' only loss of the season was against the Broncs, 27-19.
2006 - Dillon 35, Frenchtown 14. A "double" rematch, this game marked the same opponents as the year before. Trey is probably turning red from the obvious nature of this statement. The Beavers beat the Broncs 27-14 in the regular season.
2007 - Billings Central 28, Dillon 13. The Rams won the regular season meeting by a 20-6 score.
2008 - Miles City 20, Billings Central 7. The Rams won the regular season game, 14-8. This was the last game against an Eastern 'A' opponent that Central has lost.
2009 - Frenchtown 28, Billings Central 6. The Broncs' only loss of the season was to the Rams, 16-12.
Now, if you knew ANY of that, Trey, I'll gladly eat my shoe. Keep that in mind the next time one of my preview posts doesn't meet your oh-so-exacting standards, okay?
