Photofest! Torrington Nips Wheatland in Tough 2A Football Encounter
Two longtime rivals meet on the gridiron once again as Wheatland played host to Torrington in 2A play on Friday. Torrington suffered back-to-back losses to Nebraska schools to start the season but now are 2-2 on the year after beating Wheatland 14-7.
The Blazers assumed the lead in the opening quarter on a 1-yard run from Bryce Hager so at this point it was 7-0. Scoring was scarce as both defenses came to play but Wheatland found the end zone in the 2nd quarter on a 50-yard pass TD pass from Brock Peasley to Bryce Stenson so it was 7 all at the halftime break.
The 2nd half was a defensive struggle but Torrington broke through in the 4th quarter as Hager tossed a 19-yard touchdown pass to Landre Greiman to make it 14-7. That's the way it stayed and Torrington has a big challenge this week as they will host defending 2A champion Big Horn on Friday. Wheatland is now 1-3 on the year with a road game coming up on Friday in Glenrock.
