Tongue River Knocks off Torrington to Remain Unbeaten
One of the most athletic teams in 2A football this year is Tongue River and they are 6 for 6 on the year following a 48-13 win over Torrington on Friday in Dayton. Torrington made a few plays to open some eyes in the first half as Graysen Shields caught a touchdown pass from Bryce Hager and returned a kickoff nearly the length of the field for a touchdown. Tongue River also found the end zone a few times in the first half as Nate Guimond had a 31-yard run for a score and the Eagles had a big rally in the last 1 minute of the first half.
Caleb Kilbride caught a touchdown pass from Conner Cummins that covered 10 yards and the Eagles recovered a fumble on the ensuing kick-off. Cummins found Kilbride again for another TD that went for 32 yards in the last 5 seconds of the half to take the lead for good, Guimond and Javin Walker added scores in the 2nd half and the Eagle defense did the rest.
Tongue River has not made the playoffs since 2016 but they're well on their way to a postseason bid. The Eagles travel to Burns this week. It's been rough for Torrington this season at 1-5 and the Blazers will host Glenrock this week.
