BIGFORK — Carson Gulick threw for two touchdowns and ran for another, leading Whitefish over Bigfork 20-16 in a Western A football game.

Gulick was 16 of 31 passing for 180 yards, with one interception. His 18-yard scoring pass to Dane Hunt put the Bulldogs (2-4 overall, 2-3 in the Western A) ahead 20-14 midway through the fourth quarter.

Whitefish made goal-line stands in the second quarter and again late in the game, when the Vikings didn’t score on four tries from inside the 5.

The Bulldogs took over inside their 1-yard line with under two minutes left, and gave up a safety, but the ensuing free kick resulted in a fumble that Whitefish recovered.

Tristan Herd completed 8 of 16 passes for 217 yards for Bigfork (3-3, 3-3). He was intercepted once. Sam Plummer ran for both of the Vikings touchdowns, and Bigfork outgained Whitefish 355-290.
