Warriors use big 2nd half to roll past Bison

BUFFALO – The Warriors were able to shake off a rough first half Friday night, scoring 22 unanswered points in the final two quarters to take down Buffalo on the road 32-10.
Penalties and other miscues on both sides of the ball slowed down the Warriors in the first half as they went into the break tied with the Bison 10-10.
“We made some halftime adjustments based off of how we were playing,” said coach Thor Ware. “Their one touchdown came off of a breakdown on defense and we fixed that. Once we settled in the adjustments worked and everything is good.”
They certainly had their chances to score early on, failing on four tries from inside Buffalo’s one-yard line to get in the end zone.
They would record a safety the ensuing play and lead early 2-0.
After a Buffalo field goal in the first quarter, Thor Ware. Jr broke off a 47-yard touchdown run with 5:30 remaining in the second quarter and with the Mauricio Caballero two-point conversion the Warriors led 10-3.
But the letdown happened with 1:09 remaining in the first half as Buffalo’s Kasen Filbert went untouched down the sideline for 32 yards and after the ensuing extra point, it was all knotted up heading into halftime.

MEETEETSE – The Longhorns faced an early deficit in Friday’s game against Ten Sleep as the Pioneers took the opening kickoff back for a touchdown and recovered the ensuing onside kick.
But once all the commotion subsided and Meeteetse settled down, they blew the game wide open en route to an 83-12 victory over the visiting Pioneers.
“It was good for us to face some adversity early in the game,” said coach Matt Jensen. “After all of that happened, our defense did a pretty nice job of stepping up. The performance of our entire squad was great, even when we went with our second team the second half.”
After being in an early hole, the Longhorns bounced back and dominated the rest of the way leading 57-12 at halftime.
The lack of numbers showed for Ten Sleep as it only had 10 players in uniform. And with two battling injuries in the game, they just didn’t have enough to keep up with Meeteetse.
“We just couldn’t get things going after that quick start,” said Ten Sleep coach Andy Ray. “We know we can move the ball when we execute. We just had trouble, they have a really fast defense. We just had trouble handling the speed.”
Despite the loss and low numbers, Ray was proud of the way his team competed throughout.
“The kids never quit. They fought the whole time and that’s all we can ask of them is to keep playing football,” he said. “When you only have 10 guys and two of them are hurt, all you can ask is they do the best they can. We’re proud of them – they played hard through the end.”
The win puts Meeteetse back in the win column, a place they’re accustomed to being. And with some big games coming up that right where they want to be.
“It was great to get back on the winning track,” said Jensen. “The Western side of the conference is going to shake out the next two weeks and we’ve got a tough schedule coming up. We’re going to have to have kids step up.”

For the Schroefel girls, “We Are Family” is a little more literal than Sister Sledge and envisioned. Freshman Sabrina Schroefel, above, and senior Sarah Schroefel were able to compete on the same golf team this year. They were part of the Worland Warrior family that teed off Friday afternoon at the 3A East Conference Tournament being hosted by Green Hills Golf Course in Worland. They will continue their tournament today with tee times beginning at 9 a.m. The Worland girls are currently in second place.

WORLAND – After the first day of the conference golf tournament, things aren’t looking too bad for the Worland golf team – particularly on the girls side.
Senior Sarah Schroefel sits in second place after shooting an 88 on the first day and is just one stroke behind leader Sara Kostur from Torrington. Sabrina Schroefel and Katelyn Scheuerman both turned in good performances as well, shooting 109 and 117, respectively.
For Scheuerman, it was a personal best that shattered her old best by far according to coach Kevin Heyer.
Chassidi Garay showed improvement from her practice scores, shooting a 154 in her first varsity competition.
Combining the top three scores, the girls currently sit in second place after day one with a score of 314, 15 strokes behind Buffalo in first place.
The boys had a tough time Friday and currently sit fifth in the team standings with a score of 517.
McCoy Molzahn shot the low score for the boys with a 100 followed by Jacob Lamm with a 113, Gaten Jolley with a 136 and Josiah Sanchez at 168.
“The girls did a great job. I know Sarah (Schroefel) can shoot better so I expect to see her improve even more. Sabrina (Schroefel) played her best of this year and Katelyn was absolutely great today,” said Heyer. “I was proud of Josiah (Sanchez) and Chassidi (Garay) because they made it through and they shot considerably higher than their practice rounds. It was nice to see them cut some strokes off.
“I’d like to see some more out of the boys, I think we’re a lot better than what our scores show.”
With their current standing in second place and having performed well Friday, Heyer expects the girls to perform well enough Saturday to challenge Buffalo for the conference title.
“15 strokes isn’t that much to overcome,” he said. “The girls are excited about [their performance Friday]. We have a shot at being conference champs. We just need to step it up Saturday.”
Competition begins Saturday with a tee-time of 9 a.m.
