Broncs ground Green River for homecoming win

JACKSON HOLE, Wyo. – The Jackson Broncs erased all traces of the sting of losing in Cody with a 47-0 shutout of Green River Friday at homecoming.

The Broncs rolled up more than 500 yards of total offense enroute to the shutout. Jayden Cox had another big day, leading an explosive offense that found the end zone seven times—Cox rushing for two of those.

Sophomore quarterback Sadler Smith looked sharp, delivering two touchdown strikes to Peter Goettler and another to Nate Keipert.

The defense was suffocating, allowing little running room for the Wolves. Green River found little success through the air, either. Sam Lopeman also had the Broncs first pick-6 of the season when the junior stepped in front of a quick slant pass and intercepted Jachob Fuss for a 10-yard runback and score.

The Broncs offense was electric but still not without a few mishaps. The Broncs’ first possession ended after a fumble by Keipertin Green River territory. Cox also lost a fumble later on. Green River also turned the ball over a few times as the game was played in cold, wet conditions at William T. McIntosh Field.

Pearson Evans took over at quarterback for much of the second half with Clancy Meagher handed the running chores to rest Cox.

With the win, Jackson improves to 4-2 (2-1 in conference play). Next up is a road contest with archrival Star Valley in Afton. The Braves (6-0) are coming off a pounding of the Powell Panthers last week, 36-0.
