The Saratoga Sun -

Miners fall to defending champs

 


Hanna-Elk Mountain-

Medicine Bow (HEM) High School football coach Zach Scott told the Sun at the beginning of the year he knew his team had young players and many of his opponents were senior heavy. Such was the case of defending state champs, the Kaycee Buckaroos, which has nine seniors.

“Kaycee was every bit the defending state champ we thought they would be,” Scott said about playing the Buckaroos on Saturday. “They are fast, physical, and very disciplined in what they do. With nine seniors they will be very hard for anyone to beat this year.”

The ending score of 20-67 made Scott’s words at the start of the season prophetic.

There were bright spots in the game for Miner fans though.

Tylor Goodro passed for 145 yards and had two touchdowns.

Brendon Reeves gained 67 yards receiving. Conor McGraw grabbed a touchdown pass. His brother had a touchdown on a kickoff return.

Defensively, Shane McGraw had two fumble recoveries.

Scott knows the season is young and is confident the team has learned from the matchup with Kaycee so early in the season

“Our boys played hard and came up short, but we learned a lot about how we want to play football and the type of team we want to become,” said Scott.

The next game is with Hulett Devils at Hulett High School starting at 1 p.m.
