Star Valley Advances in 3A Playoffs With Big Win Over Lander
Star Valley has been in the post season in football for 13 consecutive seasons so the Braves know exactly what they're doing. In their playoff game in Lander on Friday, they unleashed a physical effort that the Tigers had trouble matching. Running back Lane Oesch had 3 touchdowns and a whopping 301 yards rushing in the contest. The guy is a beast who just never gives up on any play.
Star Valley also got a productive game from Winston Green who contributed a couple of scores. Now Lander was right in the game in the first half with touchdowns from Robert Koivupalo and Tisso Guina but the Braves were too much in the 2nd half.
Star Valley pulled away in the 2nd half and posted a 50-20 win to improve to 6-4 on the year. The Braves will be take on defending 3A champion Cody on Friday night. Lander's season comes to an end at 4-5.
