3A East:

Lander is in the post season, however the Tigers do not know their seeding yet. With the win against Worland on Friday 31-13, Lander has an opportunity to earn the number seed heading into the post season.

A win for the Tigers creates a three tie for the one seed. With the new tiebreaker rule however, Lander must defeat Douglas by nine or more to win the 3A East Conference and have a number one seed. If the Tigers pulled it off, Douglas will be the two seed based on the head to head match up against Buffalo. The Bison would be the third seed. If Lander wins by seven or eight, Buffalo wins the 3A East, Tigers are the two seed based on a head to head win. Lander winning by six or less, even with a loss Douglas would win the tie breaker, Buffalo is second, Tigers are third. A loss for Lander makes the Tigers the three seed.

For the Riverton Wolverines, with Worland losing to Lander. Riverton is now in a win or go home situation. The Wolverines would only need to defeat Worland to be the four seed. A loss for Riverton concludes their season.
