The Encampment-Meeteetse game had all the makings of a very even match-up between these two 1A 6 Man teams. The biggest lead of the game for either team was 7 points and the teams traded touchdowns in the first quarter. Meeteetse outscored Encampment 16-13 in the 2nd quarter and each team put 20 points on the board in the 3rd quarter so, after 3, Meeteetse led 42-20.

The biggest play of the game was turned in by Encampment's Quade Jordan who rambled 50 yards for a touchdown to put the Tigers in front for good at 46-42. That's the way it stayed as Encampment is 3-1 on the year and Meeteetse drops to 3-2.

Statistically speaking, Quade Jordan had 260 yards rushing in the game for Encampment with four touchdowns. The Tigers as a team ran the ball for 433 yards and passed for another 133. On the Meeteetse side, quarterback Dace Bennett threw for 272 yards and three touchdowns and also ran for 107. The Longhorns ended up with 426 yards of total offense. What a game!

Encampment is ranked 2nd this week in our WyoPreps poll and will be at HEM on Saturday. Meeteetse is ranked 3rd this week and they have a huge game vs. #1 Little Snake River on Saturday in Baggs.

Mullen Fire Burn Scars (September 2021)

Over Labor Day Weekend, I tagged along on a hunting trip in Medicine Bow National Forest near Laramie, Wyoming. As someone that grew up 45 minutes outside of Philadelphia, I have never gone hunting. Though the experience of hunting was in itself very eye-opening, I think the most fascinating part was that we were in the middle of burn scars from the Mullen Fire in 2020.

Seeing the photos of the fire itself is quite frightening. Watching the firefighters work to put them out is heroic. Yet, it is absolutely haunting to stand in an area where there were trees at one point, and now there are only the broken remains of what was part of a mighty forest.
