On a blustering, snowy Friday night, the SHS football team dominated Laramie on their home turf, 49-6. Rebounding from a loss to Gillette, the Broncs started strong and never looked back, using a strong running game and stifling defense to defeat the Plainsman.

Retaining their third place ranking with the win, Sheridan scored on the very first play of the game with a pass play to Junior Daniel Sessions, who took the ball all the way to the endzone. The Broncs defense provided a stop, returning the ball to Sheridan and setting up the second touchdown of the night for Sessions. From that moment on, the night was over for the Plainsman, who dropped to a dismal 1-6 on the season.

Sessions scoring provided a continual theme for the game, rushing the ball for an incredible six touchdowns on the school’s homecoming weekend. He score three times in first quarter, twice in the second and once in the third. “We played pretty well and had a good running game going. Dan ran the ball really great,” said Senior Hayden Richins.

Senior quarterback Kevin Bakkehaug added a rushing touchdown himself in the third quarter to cap off an impressive all-round performance for the 5-2 Broncs.

The win is a nice way to go into the Broncs’ next game, an away contest against the Kelly Walsh Trojans who have a solid record of four wins and three loses. While not ranked, they will provide a tough test, and an important one as well. A win against Kelly Walsh will put the Broncs in position to play for a home opener in the first-round of the playoffs.
