The Pronghorns got off to a quick start, essentially shutting down the Longhorns on both sides of the ball. A few turnovers in the first half helped Farson jump out to a 26-8 lead at halftime.

In the third quarter, the Pronghorns chalked up another 16 points and held Meeteetse scoreless, extending the lead 42-8.

Offensively the Longhorns found success in the fourth quarter, scoring three unanswered touchdowns. Despite the touchdowns cutting the Pronghorns’ lead to 12, Meeteetse ran out of time to complete a miraculous fourth quarter comeback.

Farson finishes the season with a perfect 11-0 record, celebrating the school’s second six-man state title. The Pronghorns won their first state title back in 2018, which featured some of the same players who competed in this year’s state title game.

Congratulations to the Farson-Eden Pronghorns on an incredible season!
