Big Horn Football Falls In Home Finale Vs. Upton-Sundance, But Make The Playoffs

Kevin Koile - Sheridan Media

In the last home game of the 2021 regular season, Big Horn lead Upton-Sundance 14-7 at the end of the first quarter, but it was all Patriots after that, as the Rams would lose 40-14.

The Rams needed some help to make the playoffs and they got it, when Newcastle lost to Wheatland and Burns lost to Torrington.

BH finished in a 3-way tie with Tongue River and Newcastle for the #4 playoff spot in the East.

Since BH beat Newcastle, and Newcastle beat TR and TR beat BH, the next tie-breaker is record vs. highest team in the conference not involved in the tie (or next highest, next highest, etc…)

All 3 teams lost vs. Torrington, Wheatland and Upton-Sundance, and won vs. Burns and Glenrock.

The next tie-breaker was point differential for the 3 teams vs. each other (maximum 12, so as not to encourage running up the score).

BH had a scoring differential of +11, while TR had a -2 and Newcastle had a -9, thus Big Horn got the playoff spot, and the season ended for Tongue River and Newcastle.

The Rams are on the road for the first round of the playoffs on Friday, October 29th at defending 2A state champ Lyman.
