Sheridan Advances to 4A Semi-finals for 15th Straight Year
Defending 4A state champion Sheridan wasted no time in getting the upper hand against Laramie in the quarterfinal round playoff game on Friday. The Broncs got a 54-yard touchdown pass from Cael Gilbertson to Mathew Ketner to take the lead for good just 22 seconds into the game. Sheridan owned the first 3 quarters of play en route to a 52-27 win to get to 10-0 on the season.
After Ketner's touchdown, Colson Coon found the end zone and Ketner went off again for another long TD run that covered 78 yards so it was 21-0 Broncs after one-quarter of play. Coon scored again in the 2nd quarter on an 11-yard run and once in the 3rd quarter on a scamper that covered 78 yards. Dane Steel and Terran Grooms also contributed scores for the Broncs in the 3rd quarter while Laramie finally got on the board with an 8-yard touchdown pass from Ben Malone to Mason Branch.
Malone ended up throwing 3 TD passes in the 4th quarter when the game was out of reach as the Plainsmen finished the campaign at 2-8. Laramie has not posted a winning season in football since 2000.
Sheridan is in the 4A semi-finals for the 15th straight year and will host 7-3 Cheyenne Central on Friday night. We have some stellar photos of the game in our gallery below courtesy of Jolie Fay. Enjoy!
