Up in Cowley, Rocky Mountain had one special teams touchdown and two field goals, the last one a 42-yarder with 19 seconds left to overcome Wind River 13-12. The Wolverines remained winless on the season, 0-7 and Wind River suffered its first conference loss and third game overall. The Cougars fell to 5-3 on the season and remain the only county team with a winning record.
Over in Douglas, the Lander Valley Tigers held on through two quarters, but ultimately fell to the Bearcats for the 15th game in a row, 47-20. The Dubois Rams gave up 82 points to Meeteetse while only scoring 20. St Stephens plays at Riverside in Big Horn County Saturday at 2.
