BRONC FOOTBALL - The snow fell and so did Cheyenne Central Saturday night as the Sheridan Broncs won the 4-A State Title 40-15. Head coach Don Julian.
The Broncs lost the season opener August 28th against Kelly Walsh, and then ran off 11 consecutive victories and their first Championship since
They dominated Central, scoring six touchdowns -- four by the offense, one by the defense, and another by the special teams as Cody Williams started the game returning the opening kick 99 yards for atouchdown.
The Broncs led 13-7 at halftime; they opened up the second half with two Austin Woodward touchdown runs in the 3rd Quarter to bump the lead up to 26-7. Dan Zemski put the game out of reach in the 4th with a 10-yard interception return for a touchdown, and Woodward would get the final score on a short run with just under two minutes to play.
The Broncs' offensive line saved their best for last as they ran for 280 yards -- 154 from Woodward and 89 from Williams. The defense held Central to under 300 total yards. Julian comments on the leadership from theSenior class. And he also had praise for the coaching staff.
They end the season with a record of 11-1, an 11-game winning streak, beating every team in 4-A.
