LYMAN – Last weekend, the Lyman Eagles football team beat Thermopolis 50-0 on enemy turn in a 2A Conference bout.

The Eagles came into the game ranked #1 in the conference with a record of 4-0.

The Lyman Eagles dominated the game on the ground, gaining 442 yards through their rushing game. The Eagles also continued their unstoppable defensive efforts, holding their opponents to an average of 51 yards per game on the ground, 47.3 yards per game through the air. Lyman’s team is currently leading the conference in both pass and rush defense.

In the game against Thermopolis, the Eagles allowed only 17 rushes to go for 58 yards, while accumulating 415 yards on 45 runs for themselves. In passing, the team’s quarterbacks completed five of 13 passes for 80 yards and caused 16 drops of Thermopolis’ 28 attempts, allowing them to only gain 59 yards. Lyman accumulated 15 first downs in the game, allowing Thermopolis to gain only two.

“Coach told us that Thermopolis was going to come out on a high level,” says team senior Cisco Taylor, “and to beat them, we had to come out on an even higher level than that. So we executed the game plan and came out with a big win.”
