Cokeville tames Bobcats 49-0, Lady Panthers shine
Cokeville v. Lyman Friday for regular-season finale
The Panthers traveled to Thermopolis on Friday to face the Bobcats on their home turf. They defeated the Bobcats 49-0. The Panther defense was on fire, causing multiple turnovers throughout the game.
The Panthers jumped out to an early lead with an interception followed by a reception by Tanner Hatch for a touchdown. The Bobcats looked as if they might equal the score, but penalties were also something that plagued the Bobcats, as their opportunities to score were called back by penalties.
Jack Dayton continued to lead the rushing for the Panthers, but it was quarterback Landon Walker who accounted for five touchdowns: Two passing, two rushing and one Pick-6.
Andrew Jackman came up with one interception, and got his mitts on the ball knocking down passes. Cael Thompson had a big turnover, and rushed for several yards before being dragged down by the Bobcat defense. Tanner Hatch had the two receptions for touchdowns. Justin Moyes had an interception late in the fourth quarter.
It was a great win for the Panthers! The Panthers will host the Lyman Eagles on Friday for their final game of the regular season. The winner will go into the playoffs in second place and will have home field advantage in the first round! Good luck Panthers!
