ROCK SPRINGS — The Rock Springs High School Tigers are set to go up against the Cheyenne Central Indians, on Friday Oct. 15, in their last home game of the season.
The Tigers are coming off a massive homecoming win last Friday, Oct. 8, when they dismantled the injury-ridden Bison of Cheyenne South High School, 65-0. 49 of the 65 points were tallied by the end of the first quarter.
For the Indians, they are coming off a narrow loss to to the 6-1 Cheyenne East Thunderbirds, 33-27. The Indians’ record now sits at 1-6.
Despite the Indians’ tough season, Tigers head coach Mark Lenhardt is laser focused and knows not to take his opponents lightly.
“They have a great quarterback who can run and they play hard on defense,” Lenhardt said. “It’ll be a game where we have to play extremely good football to get the win. It’ll be interesting to see how it goes, considering we haven’t played our starters much but we are well rested so it should be to our advantage.”
Lenhardt has said he has concerns because his varsity players have played three quarters in two weeks but he puts the blame on no one. He hopes that despite the Tigers’ lack of field time, they can pull out a comfortable win when his team hits the field Friday, at 6 p.m.
