Lander Wins the Battle of Fremont County over Riverton
The annual rivalry game between Lander and Riverton, which began in 1922 is always spirited and hard-fought and the 2021 edition was no different. Scoring was tough to come by but Lander succeeded in finding the end zone twice in the contest along with a field goal. The Tigers received a touchdown run from Gabe Harris and a touchdown pass from Brenon Stauffenberg to Tisso Guina.
Riverton only found the promised land once on a touchdown connection from Nathan Hutchinson to Tanner Johnson. Lander's defense did the rest en route to a 17-7 win.
Lander is 2-4 on the year and 1-2 in 3A conference play and broke a 4 game losing streak on Friday night. The Tigers are scheduled to play Rawlins this week. Riverton is still looking for the first win of the season after 7 games, but this was their closest loss since the 3rd game of the year. The Wolverines will travel to Worland on Friday.
We do have some great photos of the Riverton-Lander game thanks to the folks at Riverton High school. Those pics are in our gallery so take a look!
