Star Valley 20 Cody 7
In a hard-hitting game that had points at a premium, the Star Valley Braves got a first half touchdown on a 21-yard strike from Brant Nelson to Chase Merrell to stake their claim to a lead that they never gave up. James Erickson took an interception back 61 yards for a score and Nelson plunged in the dagger late in the fourth quarter as the program won their 17th straight game and claimed the 3A West crown in a 20-7 win in Cody. It was also the 12th straight win for a Star Valley team on the Cody field, dating back to 1991. The Braves wrap up the regular season at home next weekend against winless Evanston.
