Buckaroos ride the wave over Fallon

On November 2, The Lowry Buckaroos hosted a playoff game against the Fallon Greenwave. The previous week, The Bucks coasted to a 21-7 win against Fallon. In the rematch, the Bucks had little trouble in demolishing the Greenwave, 41-14.

“We executed really well and our line did awesome,” said senior Trystan Blouir.

The Bucks were able to host a playoff game for the second year in a row, and they were able to ride the momentum of hosting a playoff game as they jumped off to a quick start against the Greenwave, leading 20-0 at the end of the first quarter.

The Buckaroo defense made it tough for the Greenwave to move the ball down the field, as they didn’t put up a score until midway through the second quarter. The Bucks didn’t waste time after halftime, as they outscored the Greenwave 21-7 the rest of the game.

“I feel like we played really well, mainly because if they can’t score they can’t win. Our defense really flew around and played lights out football,” said junior Tytin Johnson, who had a fumble return for a touchdown.

With the win, the Buckaroos broke a school record for wins as they are 9-1. Next up for the Bucks, is the Moapa Valley Pirates. The Pirates have been the only obstacle for the Bucks the past two years in their state championship run.

“If we go out there and punch Moapa Valley right in the mouth, we’ll have a very good chance to win,” said Johnson.
