Prior to the start of Friday evening's football game between the Sheridan Broncs and the Natrona County Mustangs the John Donald Garbutt Post 7 Honor Guard carried the colors onto the field for the singing of the National Anthem.

The Big Horn Rams got on the scoreboard first with a pass from #19 Connor McCafferty to #32 Deven Ibach for this TD on their first possession - the extra point by #22 Colter Carzoli with #19 Conner McCafferty holding illuminated the scoreboard in favor of the Rams. It was all Rams over the Moorcroft Wolves with a final score of 55 to 20.
