PhotoFest: Kelly Walsh Stops Laramie in 4A Football
Kelly Walsh and Laramie have struggled in 4A football this season but Friday's match-up had a lot of playoff implications. Kelly Walsh entered the game with a record of 1-4 and a win would almost certainly give them a playoff spot. Laramie came in at 0-5 and the Plainsmen needed to get with it or they could be left out of the postseason.
Laramie kicked a field goal in the first quarter from Fisher Frude but that was the only points they produced on the night. KW took the lead for good on a 5-yard touchdown pass from Carter Alvar to Kacen Paden to give the Trojans a 6-3 advantage. It would stay the way heading into the halftime intermission.
Kelly Walsh increased their lead with a 79-yard gallop to the end zone from Landon Walker and that put the Trojans in front 12-3. Walker concluded the scoring with a 4-yard run for a TD as Kelly Walsh wins this one 20-3.
The Trojans have a tough encounter this week as they will travel to Sheridan. Laramie will still be looking for their first win of the year on Friday as they'll host Thunder Basin.
