Tongue River

The ever present, ever cheering, Victoria with help from the Ram Mascot cheered the home team and crowd on to victory over the visiting Tongue River Eagles in Friday evening action in Big Horn. Victoria, who often works the crowd on her own, was joined by her sister and others who dawned the Ram mascot attire in shifts as they cheered the Rams on to a 72 to 38 de-feathering of the Eagles.

As the recently completed art work in the Tongue River High School gym indicates the Lady Eagles, with talons exposed, swooped down on their prey the Lady Rams from Big Horn. When they were finished with their prey the score was Tongue River 51 and Big Horn 36.

With 3:11 to go in the 1st quarter Rams QB senior Connor McCafferty pitches the ball to junior Corey Sturza on a second and 4 from the 4. Corey ran left behind his blockers into the end zone making the score Big Horn 12 - Tongue River 0. With TR unable to get on-track Big Horn, in cruise control, ran the score to 46 to 0.

On Thursday evening in Dayton the Tongue River Lady Eagles may have had their pink on but the Big Horn Lady Rams had their game on and swept the evening 25 - 17, 25 - 19 & 25 - 16 as they also swept the season against their cross-district rivals.

If you're unable to catch your local high school football team in action this week-end you can still get into the "Hometown Spirit" by walking or driving by either or both the two First Federal Savings Bank locations (46 W. Brundage & 1695 Coffeen Ave.) and enjoy the football "clings" they have hung in the windows.
