Big Piney Makes Statement in 9-Man Football Beating Rocky Mt.
Big Piney's entry into the 1A 9-Man ranks has been so far good as they defeated a talented Rocky Mountain team on Friday 12-8. It was certainly a physical game with Big Piney opening up the scoring on a 28-yard run for a touchdown by Caden Clifford to give the Punchers a 6-0 lead.
Rocky Mountain answered with a TD of their own thanks to Carsyn Weber as plowed into the end zone from 9 yards out. The Grizzlies converted the 2-point try and led 9-6. On the very next play, Big Piney's Karsyn Gurr returned the ensuing kickoff 85 yards to the house to put the Punchers back in front 12-8. Gurr played a huge role in this game as he came up with 2 interceptions in the 4th quarter.
It was a gritty effort from both teams but Big Piney is 2-0 on the year and will travel to Greybull this week. Rocky Mountain falls to 1-1 and they will host Wyoming Indian. We have some great photos of this game from Joan Snyder-Mitchell and Stacey Haslam in our gallery below. Enjoy!
