PLAYING FOR PRIDE: With the decision at Tuesday’s WHSAA Board of Directors meeting that Riverside is once again ineligible for the 6-man playoffs, the Rebels know they’ll be staying home for the postseason. But they can still be a factor in determining who gets in and where they’re seeded, beginning with Friday’s game at undefeated Snake River.

STREAKING: Newcastle snapped a 13-game losing streak with a victory over Moorcroft last week, leaving no team in the state with a double-digit losing streak. ... Defending state champs Big Horn and Farson have both won 15 games in a row.

UNLUCKY SEVEN: Seven teams have 300-plus mile bus trips on Friday, with Kemmerer at Greybull (298) just missing the cut. ... Gillette (349 miles to Rock Spring) and Pine Bluffs (367 to Big Horn) not only have to battle tired legs, but will be decided underdogs when they step off the bus. .. This week’s long-distance award, however, goes to undefeated Cody, which heads 375 miles south to take on winless, but dangerous, Evanston.

BACK TO LARAMIE?: In Class 2A, last year’s state finalists — defending champ Buffalo and runner-up Mountain View — appear to be on a collision course to meet again at War Memorial Stadium. Both teams are undefeated, with the Bison owning a 125-28 scoring advantage against their East Conference opponents and the Buffalos having outscored their West Conference foes 99-6.
