It was a battle of the two top-ranked teams in 4A on Friday night as #2 Sheridan played host to #1 Cheyenne East. It was a contrast in offensive styles as Cheyenne East plays fast and Sheridan is a bit more deliberate. East took it right to Sheridan in the first quarter with a 14-yard pass from Cam Hayes to Garet Schlabs to make it 7-0 and that was followed by Hayes with a 2-yard run for a score to bump the T-Bird lead to 14.

Sheridan answered the bell in a big way in the 2nd quarter as Colson Coon went to work with a 19-yard run to the end zone and a 1-yard plunge for the TD. Sandwiched in between that, East put a touchdown on the board thanks to another score from Hayes so at halftime East led 17-14.

The Broncs turned on the jets in the 3rd quarter offensively with 2 more touchdowns from Coon and East kept pace with a couple of TDs of their own, highlighted by Garret Schabs catching his 2nd touchdown pass of the game. Schabs caught 16 balls for 174 yards. But the biggest play of the game was a 93-yard kickoff return for a touchdown from Sheridan's Dane Steele so after 3, the Broncs had a 35-31 lead.

In the 4th quarter, Coon rang up his 5th TD of the game and finished with 228 yards rushing so Sheridan bumped the lead to 42-31. East found the end zone one more time as Schabs caught a deflected ball and turned it into a 51-yard touchdown. the 2-point try was good to close the gap to 42-39 but that was as close as the Thunderbirds would get. East quarterback Cam Hayes threw for 403 yards in a remarkable performance. So Sheridan is 6-0 after this 42-39 win and the Broncs will travel to Casper to play Kelly Walsh on Friday. Cheyenne East drops to 5-1 and they'll host their annual rivalry game with Cheyenne Central on Friday.
