BILLINGS — The top-ranked teams in the 406mtsports.com high school football rankings continued to prove their supremacy last week.

On Friday, Class A No. 1 Hamilton handled then-No. 3 Dillon 37-14 at home to remain undefeated. Dillon dropped to No. 4 behind Laurel, which will host Billings Central this Friday. Central replaced Libby at No. 5 in Class A.

The No. 1 team in 8-Man, Fort Benton, rolled 50-24 at Belt, which fell from No. 6 to No. 8 in the rankings this week.

Fairfield remained atop the Class B standings despite a 30-24 win over unranked Conrad on Friday. Conrad was a tough out the week before in an 8-6 loss to now-No. 5 Malta, but the Cowboys also lost 36-8 to No. 3 Glasgow three weeks ago.

Florence-Carlton beat Bigfork 33-14 last week and replaced the Vikings at No. 4 in the Class B rankings. The Falcons’ only loss came in week two against No. 2 Manhattan.

Missoula Sentinel, which is ranked No. 1 in Class AA, improved to 2-0 after beating Helena Capital 35-0 on Friday.

In 6-Man, No. 1 Big Sandy continued its dominant season with a 68-13 victory over Box Elder.

NOTE: Last week’s 8-Man rankings included the St. Regis-Mullan cooperative at No. 8. While St. Regis is a Montana school, Mullan is located in Idaho, and the co-op plays in an Idaho conference. Due in part to input from readers, 406mtsports.com decided to exclude St. Regis-Mullan from the rankings going forward. But the Tigers are ranked elsewhere — No. 4 in Class 1A Division II (the smallest classification) in the Idaho state media poll.
