Worland Clinches 3A Playoff Spot With a Win Over Riverton
The 3A East has been a heavyweight title bout between Douglas, Buffalo, and Worland. Seeding for those 3 teams for the playoffs will be determined this week in the final games of the regular season. Worland punched their ticket to the playoffs with a 34-20 road win over Riverton on Friday. The Warriors bounced back nicely from a loss to Buffalo last week and got a great game from quarterback Kade Weber who threw for 248 yards and 2 touchdowns and ran for 104 and 3 touchdowns.
Worland has a gifted group on offense this season and is ranked 2nd in 3A in passing and 3rd on total offense. Jorey Anderson had a solid game vs. Riverton with 8 catches for 168 yards and a TD. This was a game by the way that Worland trailed at one point 13-6.
So the Warriors will finish the regular season hosting Douglas which is a huge game to determine seeding for the playoffs. Worland with a win, plus Lander beating Buffalo would get the #1 seed. Depending on the results from Friday, they could be seeded anywhere from 1-4.
It's been a tough year for Riverton with a record of 0-8 and the Wolverines will wrap up the season on Friday hosting Rawlins. We have some great pics from that Worland-Riverton game in our gallery thanks to the kind folks at Riverton High School. Enjoy!
