Both games are rematches in which both of this weekend's HOME teams won by two touchdowns or more. Gillette hopes to be hitting their stride with their QB back while Sheridan hopes to dent the scoreboard and then some against Natrona.

Lingle-Ft. Laramie played in the first state championship in Laramie back in 2009. Remember the blizzard with Southeast on a Friday afternoon? The Doggers haven't won a title as an 11 man team. They did win in 1990 in 9-Man Football. Cokeville is...well...Cokeville. The Panthers have been to Laramie 3 times and won all three. Lusk is getting ever so close to the Panthers having finished runner up twice in Laramie, last year by 1 point. Upton/Sundance is as far as they've ever been in the short history of their schools combining for football. It's interesting that the last football title each school won was in the same year. Upton in 1A in 2005 and Sundance in 2A. The Bulldogs did beat the Bobcats that year.
Cokeville 36 Lingle-Fort Laramie 7
Lusk 44 Upton-Sundance 12

With the Dubois win, the Rams are in the championship game for the 3rd time in the last 4 years.
Dubois 68 Meeteetse 32
Guernsey-Sunrise 72 Little Snake River 40
