CHEYENNE — Cheyenne East is a team known throughout the state for its staunch defensive play. On Friday night, Cheyenne South learned that lesson out the hard way during a 59-26 home loss.

“They are a phenomenal team, no matter what (defensive) scheme they are running,” South coach Brodie Epler said. “It doesn’t really matter. They are phenomenal defensively, both individually and as a team.”
