Keaton Potter scored his second touchdown of the game in overtime and Class A Lewistown upended Bigfork 22-14 Saturday in a non-conference football game.

The Western B Vikings (2-1) were on the verge of nailing down a third straight victory when they lost a fumble, setting Lewistown up at the Bigfork 31-yard line with 3:41 left in the game.

The Eagles, who had an earlier fourth-quarter drive end on downs at the Bigfork 7, got a 1-yard touchdown run – and the two-point conversion run – from quarterback Seth Norslien with just 1:15 left.

The Eagles got the ball first in overtime and were able to punch in with Potter, who also added the two-point PAT run. Bigfork’s possession ended with an incomplete pass by Cormac Benn from the 4-yard line.

Bigfork outgained Lewistown 336 yards to 283.

Benn ran 29 times for 126 yards and a TD; George Bucklin added a 6-yard scoring run and picked up 79 yards on 10 carries. Quarterback Patrick Wallen rushed for 81 yards.

Potter picked up 123 yards on just 12 carries, including a 38-yard scoring burst. Norslien threw for 121 yards and ran for 54.

Levi Taylor led the Bigfork defense with 11.5 tackles. Isaac Bjorge made 8.5 stops.
